Property Valuations

A standard property valuation arranged by a prospective lender is not a survey. It won’t identify any current or potential problems with a property, such as damp, window frame decay, roof problems, pest infestations, subsidence or building cracks.

For a reasonable price, you can commission us to conduct a thorough survey on your behalf, and avoid any hidden headaches.

If necessary, we can help you negotiate a reduction in the price you pay for a property, to allow for fixing any problems or, in some cases, identify significant issues that might make you think twice about going ahead..



“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.”

Valuations are very different from other types of home survey because the value of the property is mainly based on its location, current condition, size and circumstance

A chartered surveyor has to weigh up all sorts of considerations in the process of valuing a property, ranging from the building’s age and architecture to local politics and patterns in the countrywide housing market.

Given the county’s rich history and the great age of some of its buildings, Yorkshire property valuations often have to pay special attention to the property’s condition and historical significance. On one hand, a failing structure can bring down a property’s price far faster than it’ll bring down its roof; on the other, a rich history and compelling character can add extraordinary value.
