OUR SERVICES

As long-established Chartered Surveyors specialising in residential property in Cambridge, Peterborough, St Neots and all over Cambridgeshire and the surrounding areas, we offer a variety of professional services to assist with your next property transaction.

RICS Home Surveys in Cambridgeshire

Buying a house or flat is a major financial commitment; it may well be the biggest investment of your life. Our independent home surveys are designed to help you gain a clear understanding of the condition of the property you are about to purchase, so you can make an informed decision on how best to proceed. Industry figures through the years have repeatedly shown that having a comprehensive survey carried out can save you thousands of pounds in unexpected repair costs later on.

RICS Level 2 Survey (also known as a RICS Homebuyer Report)

A cost-effective way of obtaining all the facts you need. Findings are reported in a standardised structure and clear, jargon-free language that makes it easy to understand any defects present. From the chimney pots to the boundaries, we will carry out a site inspection to assess the general condition of the fabric of the property. A Level 2 Survey is most suited to modern properties of standard construction that are in a reasonable state of repair.

RICS Level 3 Survey (also known as a RICS Building Survey)

An exceedingly detailed report based on a thorough internal and external inspection of all accessible areas to provide a detailed review of its construction and condition, as well as our recommendations for remedial action. A Level 3 Survey is particularly recommended for old properties (including listed buildings), large dwellings, non-traditional constructions and buildings that are in poor condition or have undergone substantial alterations.

If you are unsure which home survey is most appropriate for your property needs, please get in touch and we will be pleased to advise. See our  handy guide which is available to help you choose the right survey.

RICS Property Valuations

As RICS Registered Valuers, CWH Surveyors are ideally qualified to provide independent valuations for residential properties in Cambridgeshire and further afield. We regularly carry out expert valuations on behalf of private individuals and businesses for all kinds of purposes, from obtaining the current market value for a residential property as an asset to helping resolve disputes over a property’s value. We also provide:

  • Private treaty purchases and private sales

Our valuers will assess the overall condition of the property, its size, construction and location.

Expert Witness Property Reports

We have a wealth of experience in the preparation of Expert Witness Property Reports for all kinds of matters relating to residential properties, such as:

  • Family and matrimonial disputes
  • Building surveys, building defects and professional negligence
  • Rental valuations and housing disrepair
  • Dilapidations and landlord & tenant compensation

We received a very detailed report and it was followed up by a couple of informative conversations with the Surveyor. All in all a good efficient service and we were kept up to date with each stage of progress. We would recommend.

Thank you to James for the thorough level 2 house buyers report. He was very helpful in explaining all the details to me. And offered his advice any time. Very good company to deal with.
Charles Runacres

Very clear and full ‘phone briefing to start. We’re buying a house converted from very old cottages and were firmly steered to the right type of survey; CWH very aware of the area and the kinds of housing. The report itself was very clear and detailed, and helped our solicitor make sense of a slightly unusual plot and building. Reassuring to feel that all aspects of the property had been assessed. Not expensive given the thoroughness. All told a very good experience; recommended.
Dave Skinner
26 July 2023
We were buying a house "sold as seen" and we appointed CWH Surveyors to do a Level 2 House Buyers survey. Quite honestly, it was the best report of its type that we have ever had (and we've had a few!). Any remedial work that was needed was fully described with photos backing this up. Not only this but the surveyor let us know where to look to get any require work completed to a good standard. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them or use them again ourselves if we needed a good, comprehensive survey.

Thank you for doing such a good Level 2 House Buyers survey for me. I found it to be very detailed and comprehensive and the many photos of all issues identified certainly made it easier to understand the points written in the report. I fully appreciated the time Myles spent talking to me regarding the report, as he really took the time to answer any questions I had, and also gave his opinions on points and the report as a whole. I really appreciated the friendliness approachable style, along with the professionalism of the detail in the report and it's presentation. I would gladly recommend you to anyone needing a house survey. Thank you.
