As transport links to The City improve and London property values rise, Hertfordshire is becoming an increasingly attractive place to live for families and commuters. However, if your Hertfordshire property of interest is in urgent need of repair, that low asking price might not be the bargain you’d hoped for. Fortunately, our RICS surveyors can highlight defects and provide a cost estimate for the repairs by performing a building survey.

At Harding Chartered Surveyors, we only employ highly trained, fully qualified and conscientious RICS chartered surveyors and registered valuers, and we work completely independently of lenders. If you want impartial property advice from an expert in Hemel Hempstead, Harpenden, St Albans or Hertford, then we’re the company to call.


Surveys in Hertfordshire


  • RICS HomeBuyer Report
    The RICS HomeBuyer report utilises a traffic light system to highlight urgent defects in a property. You can also request an optional valuation as part of the survey.
  • Snagging Lists
    If you’re purchasing a new-build home, you can ensure your housing developer repairs all problems before your arrival by obtaining a Snagging List.
  • Full Building Survey
    Unlike the most basic RICS HomeBuyer Report, our Full Building Survey features photographs, detailed reports and a cost-estimate to resolve any problems.

Recent Reviews from Harding Chartered Surveyors

Incredibly efficient and professional service. Survey report was very through and helpful in identifying areas of work needed to be undertaken urgently, together with a ball park cost. Speed with which they undertook the survey and turned around the report ensured the transaction kept to the tight timeline set by the vendors. Can 100% recommend them.

Professional, helpful, friendly, prompt, value-for-money. I cannot speak highly enough of their thoroughly excellent and efficient service - in particular I really commend Kate's quick and friendly service (I always heard back same day on any query), and Jason's thorough but clear survey (he also phoned me to talk through report as well as submitting formal in writing).
