Why you need a Chartered Surveyor in Bromley

A Chartered Surveyor is a specialist who can inspect the interior and exterior of any type of property. When buying a property, a Chartered Surveyor is essential in assessing the overall condition of the property, highlighting potential issues such as subsidence and whether the property might be a listed building.

Chartered Building Surveyors: A Closer Look

Our RICS chartered building surveyors specialise in thorough building surveys in Bromley and the surrounding areas of South London. For potential home buyers, our Bromley chartered building surveyors based in London can provide a detailed report on potential issues such as subsidence, structural problems, or even party wall matters.

Home Surveys and Building Surveys: Know the Difference

Homebuyer Reports - RICS Level 2 Survey

The homebuyer report, or RICS Level 2 survey, is popular among Bromley home buyers. It's a detailed but non-invasive survey that covers the property's overall condition, highlighting any urgent defects or potential legal issues.

Building Surveys - RICS Level 3 Survey

Alternatively, the building survey, or a Level 3 survey, is a more in-depth investigation into the property's condition. This is recommended for older properties, more significant properties, or those with known issues. As experienced Chartered Building Surveyors, we ensure the survey report is very detailed, helping you make an informed decision.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS)?

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) is a professional body promoting and enforcing the highest international standards in the valuation, management, and development of land, real estate, construction and infrastructure.

Q: When should I get a Homebuyer Report versus a Building Survey?

A Homebuyer Report (or RICS Level 2 survey) is often sufficient for modern and conventional homes in good condition. On the other hand, a Building Survey (or RICS Level 3 survey) is advisable if the property is old, significant, has known issues, is of unconventional construction, or if you plan significant renovations.

Q: Do I need a chartered surveyor for valuation?

Yes, a chartered surveyor can provide an accurate valuation of your property, which can be useful for selling, insurance purposes, and more. The valuation is typically based on the property's size, condition, location, and current market.

Q: What is a party wall?

A party wall is shared, usually between a semi-detached or terraced house. The Party Wall Act regulates any work affecting these walls, and a chartered surveyor can provide advice or act as a party wall surveyor if needed.

Choosing the right chartered surveyor can be crucial to a smooth property transaction, accurate valuation, and peace of mind when buying or selling a property. In Bromley and the surrounding areas, our dedicated, local chartered surveyors stand ready to assist with all your property-related needs.

We used Hardings to compile an independent expert witness report for some poor workmanship we had completed at our home. Their report helped us win our case and reclaim our costs.The report was concise, succinct and detailed - providing everything we needed to win our claim.
I have used Harding Chartered Surveyors service for a new build snagging survey. The report was thorough and detailed beyond expectations. The communication with the surveyor was excellent and the end-to-end process was very easy and efficient. I would definitely use them again and recommend to a friend.
The team at Harding Chartered Surveyors were fantastic to work with. Kate helped us identify the work we needed and arranged a surveyor to visit our property. Throughout, she was clear about timescales, costs, and next steps. Our surveyor, Scott Ingham, was thorough and helpful, speaking with us by phone immediately following the survey about the largest areas of concern (which, thankfully, were not major!). The report that was produced was easy to read and helped us understand what areas of the property might need work with approximate timelines and costs. All of the work happened on time, and there were no surprises in the process. Everyone was friendly, professional, and helpful. I highly recommend!!
