We Want to hear from you
“We are very pleased with your work; everything was done on time and to our satisfaction.”
“You were very generous with your time in briefing us as to the issues we faced in taking on the project and explaining the weaknesses with the house”
“he always had time to discuss the property in depth, providing plenty of personal guidance and advice.”
“Really great service from start to finish - very straight forward and efficient booking procedures for arranging the survey which was conducted in very good time. We received the report on the day of the survey and the day after I was able to speak directly to Paul who conducted the survey. He was very helpful and didn’t make us feel like we were wasting his time or asking silly questions. We were recommended by friends who had used Charters-Reid and we would certainly be recommending them ourselves.”
“Excellent service. The process of "ordering" the survey was very easy, in fact all I did was call. Charters-Reid did all of the running around to book it in which was a welcome relief when you're trying to arrange other things. Making payment was very easy using the online portal (other methods also available) and contact was always efficient and timely. The survey went ahead without a hitch and the report that was produced was easy to read, full of photographic evidence and covered all areas. We would definitely use them again should we need to.”
“Our survey was produced efficiently, quickly and very thoroughly indeed which is what we wanted. All staff from administrative to surveyor gave a very high level of service. Would not hesitate to use Charters-Reid Surveyors Ltd again in the future.”

Protect your Investment
A survey will always protect your investment and highlight defects that could affect the purchase price and may save you money.
A house survey is an extremely detailed inspection, far too vast to mention in this article. Nevertheless, it is important to inspect for sinister defects such as:
- Structural movement
- Wet rot
- Dry rot
- Timber treatment
- Poor construction quality
- Bad DIY which could literally cost thousands to repair.
- Most importantly of all the correct purchase price.
At Charters-Reid Surveyors Ltd we have over 200 years joint experience in our practise, which is obvious when you read our reports.
“Want a cheap survey, then pay twice”
There are a number of property inspectors out there who will cut corners, they will fail to mention important details and facts, you need to avoid these characters. Ultimately it will end up costing you money.
In our 200 years worth of experience there is only one way to do the job properly and that is the correct way with the clients interest at heart. Call today:-
