A survey usually consists a written report carried out by a qualified professional that shines light on either the whole property, or on a specific part.
If you're looking to buy a new property you may need a survey to highlight any possible, unforseen defects which might influence your purchase decision or the offer you make.
You may need a list of maintenance requirements for a property you already own. If you are worried about a specific defect, such as a crack or damp patch - no matter the size, you may want to hire the services of an expert surveyor to give you professional advice on your query.
Whatever your property issue, Right Surveyors will be there to help give you the surveying service you require and deserve in Brighton and across the whole of East Sussex.

As standard, we can provide a CD of all the photos taken on site, a buildings reinstatement valuation (for your insurance cover) and a hard copy of the final report.
Often called the HomeBuyer Survey, HomeBuyers Reports focus on highlighting matters concerning the subject property which could negatively affect its value - including building defects. By doing so, the client can make an informed decision about whether to go ahead with the purchase, negotiate the price or pull out altogether.
Whilst HomeBuyers Reports may not be as detailed as other services like the House Purchase Survey Report (HPSR) or Full Building Survey, this type of report certainly has a place in the market and can be very cost-effective for modern properties of a standard build type. It provides a simple to read, concise report designed to be user-friendly.
HomeBuyers Reports are unsuitable for properties constructed in or before the Victorian period and is limited in the depth of detail which can be included. Clients in Brighton seeking a more thorough view may prefer the HPSR or Full Building Survey.
Our surveyor Richard's experience as a Chartered Surveyor allows him to offer a Single Fault Assessment service for commercial or residential properties in Brighton and across East Sussex. This involves attending the property, analysing the particular defect causing concern and producing a formal letter detailing his findings.
Typically, our surveyor will look at the potential cause or causes of the defect, its severity and workable solutions. The service is bespoke, however, so the first stage will always be a thorough discussion with the client.
Clients who typically instruct for this service are property owners with a concern over an evident defect, like a significant crack, or home buyers reporting concerns over a single aspect of the house - for example rising damp in a particular wall. It can also be useful for building insurance quotes and claims or for the purpose of commercial maintenance.
For most, buying a house is the biggest investment of their lives.
Can you afford to go in oblivious to costly defects and structural issues?
