This report focuses on highlighting matters concerning the subject property which could negatively affect its value. This chiefly includes building and structural defects.
This survey provides an excellent ‘middle ground’ and remains the most suitable survey for the majority of those buying or selling property in England and Wales.
"Thank you so much for sending this report so quickly and it was great meeting Teresa. The report is very informative, I learnt a lot, and now understand why I have these problems with my flat and how I can improve them. Thankyou for a great service." Jane, Southend-on-Sea
If you are looking to buy a property in Colchester, instructing a building surveyor to work on your behalf is always advisable. Building surveyors can guide you on all property aspects of the purchase, from structural stability to specific defects, and may even be able to help negotiate a better price.

Heading into its third year of operation now, Colchester Surveyors is led by Teresa Scannell MRICS RegVal, your local RICS regulated and fully qualified Chartered Surveyor. She offers a wide variety of building surveys and property services, as well as offering property valuations as an RICS Registered Valuer.
Are you working to a limited budget or time frame? We offer a rapid-response, low-fee service called Verbal Acquisition Advice. Instead of a written survey report, you pay for Teresa’s time on site. She’ll inspect to the same level of detail as a full building survey, but report to you verbally.
Simply bring your own pen, paper and clipboard and you can end up with as much information as a written report, without the corresponding fee and time delay.
