Company Profile

We survey flats, modern town houses, period properties, conversions, any type of residential property. 

At home-approved® our aim is simple: to add value to the traditional building survey by providing estimated costs for repairs to identified defects. The home-approved® structural survey report is presented in a clear format, jargon-free and supported by photographic evidence of all identified defects. Because some defects can be more serious than others i.e. structural rather than cosmetic, we present required repairs in terms of priority. If you proceed with the purchase of the property our report will then help you plan and budget for future repairs. 

So what makes us so different to other property surveyors? 

We provide a personal and professional service that is fully focused on giving you the information you’ll need. We carry out a thorough visual inspection and use specialist equipment – including long reach cameras – so that we can even check those parts of a property that would otherwise be ignored or overlooked.

  1. Buildings survey as part of house purchase

    Every aspect of dealing with Home-Approved Building Surveyors Limited was a pleasure. They were always extremely approachable, helpful, polite and timely in their communication doing what they promised when they promised it. The Survey was comprehensive and contained both technical references and lay persons explanations to all of the areas surveyed. Much of the written information was backed up by photographs, some of which appeared to have been taken by drone which was very impressive.

  7. Carried out a full survey on a house we are moving to.

    I cannot recommend this company highly enough. The survey carried out was incredibly detailed, thorough and informative, complete with photos where areas of concerns were raised/mentioned in the report. We can move forward with the house purchase with a very clear insight of the property and prioritise the maintenance on matters where required once we move in. Thank you very much for the piece of mind this report has given us.

  8. Full House survey conducted

    Matthew undertook the survey as scheduled and presented back a thorough report within two working days as promised. The detail of the survey gave us the re-assurance we required around buying the house and I would thoroughly recommend the company to anyone. I particularly like the use of the 10m pole to gain visibility of the roof and chimney which other companies don't provide.

  9. Full building survey at proposed property purchase

    Survey by Home-Approved was done on a Wednesday and an extremely thorough report, including pictures of areas of concern and estimated costs to correct, was produced by email on the Friday. The survey was carried out over a couple of hours, unlike the standard Homebuyers report which, from what I can ascertain, only takes about 15mins. Because the house I am buying is an older property, the results of the work has helped me to determine what repairs I need to prioritise and how much I need to budget to undertake them. The expense is well worth it and has prevented any nasty surprises that weren't picked up in the standard Homebuyers survey. I highly recommend Home-Approved.

  10. Survey and Project Management for Leaking Roof

    We consulted Matthew to advise on a leaking flat roof. His report was prompt, comprehensive and easy to understand. He recommended two specialist companies, both of which provided very good service. He then managed the re-roofing project through to a satisfactory conclusion. He was aided by Jill Sutcliffe who worked competently to co-ordinate and communicate between the various parties involved. I would definitely use his services again and would recommend him to others.
