Alexander Lyons offers two types of survey at competitive prices which are specifically designed to help home buyers in their decision with regard to purchasing property prior to exchanging contracts.

Building Survey (formerly called a Structural Survey)

The most comprehensive building survey available, it examines all accessible parts of the property. If you have particular concerns mention them when the surveyor rings you prior to the inspection to ensure they cover it in your report.  Read the full description…

RICS Homebuyer Report

A Homebuyer Report is a concise report, effectively a shortened Building Survey in a standard format set out by the RICS.  It is most suitable for conventional properties built after 1900 that are in reasonable condition.  Read the full description…

Residential valuation reports

We carry out residential valuations, including more complex buy-to-let and investment valuations. We either use generic forms or report in a free text format. Our residential valuations are often carried out in conjunction with a Homebuyer Report or Building Survey (previously called a Structural Survey or Full Structural).

Do you need help deciding which survey you need? By far the best way to find out is to contact us for a quote but you can also take a look at our quick guide on the Which Survey? page.
