Overview of Building Surveying services

"Excellence in surveying is about understanding the age and class of a property and the construction methods of the era in which it was built. So the surveyor can trace key defects. We call this following the trail of suspicion."

Ringley’s experienced survey team can deliver all types of property surveys in accordance with Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) standards.

We can assist and administer building projects and guarantee compliance with the latest legislation. Our expertise covers new-build, building regulations, defects diagnosis, planning maintenance strategies, sinking funds and many other methods used to reduce ad-hoc day-to-day repairs.

Why do I need a survey?

The best way to reach an informed decision before you invest in a home or business premises is to instruct a professional survey and valuation. Before you decide to go ahead and commit yourself legally, you can minimise the risks by asking a qualified surveyor can advise you whether:

  • The agreed price is reasonable?
  • There are any drawbacks I don’t know about? and,
  • If so, what do I need to do about them?
