How Do They Work?

1. Ethical Quoting

After you contact Ian or Kristine , they will provide a no obligations assessment of your situation and at this time they will give you an initial idea of the cost of the survey. As a general guide, a Damp Survey for a property in the North East is less than the cost of a basic home buyers survey, providing excellent value for money.

2. Quick Response Time

We aim to conduct your survey to the time requirements you have specified which in our experience is normally within 3-4 days. If for whatever reason Ian or Kristine is unable to complete your survey quickly this will be made clear to you during the initial assessment.

3. Site Visit

If you are happy with the assessment, Ian and Kristine will arrange to come and visit the property and if necessary liaise with tenants, estate agents or the property owners to gain access to the property and undertake the survey. The survey itself normally takes average of 3 hours for a small residential property.
