RICS Chartered Surveyors for Building and Property Surveys Homebuyers Reports in Stone

Steve Butler Building Surveyors Stone are independent RICS Chartered Surveyors. Our independence enables a flexible rather than prescriptive response to clients requirements. You can always speak to me directly, or come along to site. And unlike the corporates I don't have to rush off to the next job, so the survey and report get the time they deserve. For peace of mind my p.i insurance is under written by the renowned Lloyds Insurance company.

STEVE BUTLER CHARTERED SURVEYORS STONE are entirely independent. Most importantly we only act with the clients interest in mind.

 

The main advantages of dealing with our Stone Chartered Surveyors are :

 

PERSONAL ATTENTION: We only have a limited number of clients to ensure that the level of service is maintained. Telephone calls from clients or potential clients are always welcome.

 

PROFESSIONALISM:  Our surveyors are members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) who ensure the practice complies with exacting standards. The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors require that our surveyors keep up to date with property matters, maintain audited clients accounts, professional indemnity insurance and a formal complaints procedure.         

 

ACCESS: Property matters can be very worrying. You can invariably telephone one of our Chartered Surveyors between 8.00 am and 6.00 pm seven days per week. If you have a problem or don't understand something please feel free to call.

 

RAPID RESPONSE: Our surveyors can invariably visit you same day or next day, at the office or home.

A cautionary tale about cheap surveys

We recently had to clear up on behalf of a client who had opted for a survey from one of our cheaper surveyor allies. 

The surveyor had not bothered to move the remains of a bed in an otherwise empty house to get in to the attic. It took us about 30 seconds.

The roof had a number of snapped rafters as an original slate surface had been replaced with heavier concrete tiles. Expensive!

The surveyors had not opened the drain cover as it was supposed to be corroded in.  Again it took us about 30 seconds.

The drain was of course blocked due to a problem with the channel.

The surveyor offered some advice about dampness. The suggestion was completely unnecessary and put everybody in the house at risk of burning to death as the suggestions severely compromised the fire protection of the property. In this case particular important, as it was three stories plus cellar and likely to be in multiple occupation.

We were able to advise the client against that course of action saving potential prosecution/ closure by the Environmental Health Officer.

By doing only half a job and not stopping to think about the content of the report they were naturally able to be much quicker and cheaper. But not so cheap in the long run!
