The town was established in the Anglo-Saxon era and was an extremely important port that traded regularly with Ireland. The oldest buildings in Bristol date back to the 12th Century, making them around 900 years old. There are seven churches - such as Bristol Cathedral, St Mark's Church and St Mary Redcliffe Church - along with The Great Gatehouse, which is a historic building that dates back to around 1170.

"We focus on delivering a cost-effective service - providing you with comprehensive detail and advice, for less."
Our ‘middle-ground’ survey carried out by our Building Surveyors takes features from the Full Building Survey, but condenses it down to a more digestible report at a lower cost. This is our most popular option and has proved suitable for the majority of property buyers.
Without sacrificing quality this report focuses on what you need to know, providing all the information required to make an informed decision ahead of a purchase. Similar to the HomeBuyer’s Survey, it reports on areas directly affecting the value of the property whilst also highlighting any issues that may affect day-to-day life.
Areas covered in the Full Building survey which include structural movement, ventilation, damp, timber joinery etc, are all covered in the House Purchase Survey, but by not going into as much detail, this is a more cost-effective alternative. It remains suitable for all types of properties – whether large, small, commercial or residential.
This bespoke and thorough survey is the highest service available from Building Surveyors registered with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. The report includes an in-depth assessment of specific issues, guidance on how to deal with them and advice as to the likely costs involved to repair the issues found. The comprehensive inspection of the property and a detailed report will be specifically tailored to your requirements.
The Full Building Survey makes special allowances for structural inspections and drainage evaluations. Further additions can include detailed comment on individual defects and costings if required.
Only a fully qualified and independent Chartered Surveyor should carry out a Full Building Survey. It demands specific knowledge in diagnosing and predicting structural defects of all kinds. Fortunately our expertise is on hand and could save you thousands on civil action and costly future repairs.
If you’re on a tight budget or need to complete your purchase quickly, our Building Surveyors offer Verbal Acquisition Advice to help meet your needs. Instead of charging the price of a full written report, the surveyor will attend the site; conduct the usual investigations for a written building survey and simply report back to you directly that day – either by telephone or face-to-face.

"Thank you for your prompt service, could not have asked or expected more. I note your comments and in an ideal world everything would have been 'one'. Will not hesitate to recommend you, and will make a point of letting the estate agent know."
"Once again many thanks for an excellent survey – far better than the gentleman in Norwich who we used over here last year who failed to inspect one of the three roof spaces and another in Cambs who didn’t even get up into the loft space!"
