Gowers Surveyors are an independent firm of Chartered Surveyors operating in the pretty Lincolnshire town of Stamford and beyond. If you are thinking of buying a family home or considering a buy-to-let property investment, our highly experienced team is on hand to provide detailed, impartial and well priced surveys, valuations and specialist reports.
Did you know that the majority of homebuyers don’t bother with a property survey before going ahead with the purchase? Many mistakenly believe that their mortgage lender’s standard valuation is enough, even though the report won’t say anything about the building’s state of repair.
The consumer agency Which? recommends that prospective buyers carry out at least a Condition Survey before making a commitment – it could potentially save you thousands in having to remedy ‘nasty surprises’ once the building is in your ownership.
Gowers Surveyors offers a comprehensive range of building surveys including the very popular RICS HomeBuyer Report, RICS Condition Reports and even Period Building Surveys. Here’s a useful table to help you compare the available RICS surveys, with guidance on which survey to choose.
We also provide a huge variety of other services including Dilapidation Surveys, Building Defects Analysis and Schedules of Conditions.

RICS Homebuyer Report
We carried out a RICS HomeBuyer Report on this home in the centre of Stamford. Having uncovered issues with the roof, we were able to provide our client with the information to successfully renegotiate the purchase price, as well as providing peace of mind that the property was generally in good condition.
