Helping you choose the right survey
James Sellicks Surveyors
Chris and James established James Sellicks Surveyors in 2013 to provide a personal service which would enable clients to benefit from their wealth of experience in the Leicestershire and wider East Midlands property market. Three well placed estate agency offices provide good support for the survey company whose administrative base is in Market Harborough.
RICS Condition Report
A concise report focusing on condition. Suitable for “standard” properties or if you have already had a mortgage valuation carried out by your lender.
RICS HomeBuyer Report
A mid range, more extensive report covering condition, repairs and maintenance, valuation and insurance advice. The most popular and widely used report.
RICS Building Survey
Suitable for older, possibly run down property that is unusual or may have been altered. It contains detailed information on construction, condition, repairs and maintenance plus valuation and insurance advice.
Select a Market Valuation if you are not sure the agreed purchase price is reasonable. For other purposes including probate, portfolio, taxation and matrimonial reasons.
Specific Defect Reports
If a property is suffering from a specific problem or defect that you need help with, we will be happy to carry out an inspection and give advice.
Energy Performance Certificates (EPC)
On sale or letting of property as required by law.
Including Schedules of Condition and Dilapidation.
Buying a home is a big financial commitment. You need to know as much as possible about the property.
We will give you clear, impartial and expert advice, and have experience in older buildings.
If you have specific worries we are happy to discuss these in more detail to help you decide what type of survey is right for you.
All our reports are user-friendly and highlight any serious matters so you know what your priorities are.
Which survey you choose will largely depend on the type of property and what you aim to get from the survey. You can find more information on our website.
Remember, your mortgage lender’s valuation is not a survey.
As RICS Registered Valuers we carry out independent Market Valuations for a range of purposes.
We offer fee discounts to existing James Sellicks clients, so get in touch today on 01858 410920.
