Gowers Surveyors are an independent firm of Chartered Surveyors in Cambridge. We have considerable experience in surveying all kinds of properties – from new build homes to large country houses and everything in between. We take great pride in providing accurate, detailed and competitively priced surveys on homes and properties in and around Cambridgeshire.
Cambridge is known for its university, one of the best and oldest places of learning in the world. The grandeur of the architecture is impressive, making it the envy of many cities around the globe. Not surprisingly, property prices in Cambridge are comparatively high, and the housing market – both for buying and renting – is fast-moving. Only 50 miles from London, it is easily commutable by train.
At Gowers Surveyors, we offer the full range of surveying services to property owners and home buyers in Cambridge including comprehensive building surveys, period building surveys and party wall surveys. As members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, we provide RICS Condition Reports, RICS HomeBuyer Reports and Building Surveys, and are happy to advise on the most appropriate type of survey for your property.
Whichever level of home survey you choose, you can rest assured of our professionalism and skill to provide you with the best information and support for your planned purchase or building project.
Formerly known as a Full Structural Survey, the Building Survey is an extensive non-invasive inspection and detailed report designed to give you the best possible advice on the condition of the property including any defects and necessary repairs. This type of survey is most suitable for older and larger properties, or those that have undergone major alterations.
Easily the most popular survey among home buyers, the HomeBuyer Report is based on a mid-level investigation of visible and accessible building elements to provide you with a good knowledge of the property’s condition, highlighting urgent defects or issues that need immediate attention. Modern properties of standard construction are most suited to this type of survey.
The Condition Report is a basic survey, designed to give a clear and concise assessment of the property’s condition at the time of inspection, including a summary of the key risks associated with the current state of repair. The report provides an overview to help purchasers understand what they are buying including any urgent defects that may need to be addressed before contracts are exchanged.
