We almost always recommend to clients that they commission a building survey of the property they are thinking of buying, it helps to ensure they sleep well having bought it! Some surveyors can be dull and struggle at a human level. What most people want is someone who can confirm what the state of a property is, report in layman’s terms and who will flag up anything that really matters.
I’ve worked with many over the years. These are the firms and individuals we use regularly and are happy to recommend.
