“We used Gable Surveyors for a full Building Survey when buying a  Grade II Listed property. They were impressively professional from the outset. With little experience of Grade II properties ourselves, Lawrence made the whole process easy by putting any concerns to rest along the way by keeping in regular contact and giving us honest, detailed feedback throughout. His final report was of a particularly high standard and we felt completely reassured that we knew exactly where any potential house issues may arise in the future. I would wholeheartedly recommend Gable Surveyors to any of my friends & family as I’d know they would be in safe & highly professional hands”.

Why have a Survey


Whether you are buying or selling, we highly recommend that you have your property inspected for the following reasons:



A home inspection can detect potential safety risks such as possible asbestos-containing materials, unsafe fittings, risks of collisions and falls, amature electrical alterations and mould.


Saving you Money 

We regularly save our clients tens of thousands of pounds by finding defects that are not easy to see with an untrained eye. 


A quality home inspection can reveal critical information about the condition of a home and its systems, ensuring that the buyer is made aware of what costs, repairs and maintenance the property may require immediately and over time. (This step is essential when purchasing a property because it may save you thousands of pounds).   


Research carried out on behalf of the RICS indicate that, on average, a purchaser spends £5,750 on repairs once they move into their new home. These costs are often down to not having a survey carried out. As a seller, if you can fix problems or make allowances, this will keep the buyer from walking away. 


Reveal illegal additions or installations

If a house has illegal additions or installations, it may affect the insurance, usability, and overall value. In addition, it will become the new homeowners’ financial problem to fix and finance. A home inspection can reveal whether wall and chimney removals, loft conversions or extensions may have been completed without approval or did not follow regulations.

Giving buyers and sellers confidence 

A huge benefit to having a buyers inspection or seller pre-inspection is giving buyers and sellers the confidence to enter into a sales agreement.

Home Survey Level One
(Survey only)

Choose this report if you are buying, selling or living in a conventional house, flat or bungalow built from common building materials and in good condition. It focuses purely on the condition of the property and is: 

  • Designed for clients (buyers, vendors and owners) seeking a professional and objective report on the property's condition at an economical price. It includes a visual inspection that is less extensive than survey level two and survey level three. No tests of the building fabric or services are undertaken.

  • A very basic overview of the condition of the property. It will not contain any detailed advice on repairs or on-going maintenance.


If more detailed advice and guidance are required, the client should consider upgrading to a survey level two or three and discuss this with their surveyor before the service is undertaken.

The Home Survey Level One report (survey only) does not include a valuation, 

HomeBuyers Survey Level Two
(Survey only)

Choose this report if you would like more extensive information whilst buying or selling a conventional house, flat or bungalow built from common building materials and in reasonable condition. It costs more than the Home Survey Level One but includes:

  • All of the features in the Home Survey report

  • Defects that the surveyor considers may affect the property

  • Advice on ongoing maintenance

  • Issues that need to be investigated to prevent serious damage or dangerous conditions

  • Legal issues that need to be addressed before completing your purchase

  • Information on location, local environment and the recorded energy efficiency (where available).

The HomeBuyer Level Two report (Survey only) does not include a valuation. 

Ask your surveyor for a detailed description of the HomeBuyer Survey.

Building Survey Level Three
(Survey only)

Choose the Building Survey (formerly called a structural survey) if you’re dealing with a large, older or run-down property, a building that is unusual or altered, or if you’re planning major works. It costs more than the other reports because it gives detailed information about the structure and fabric of the property.
The Building Survey includes: 
  • A more thorough inspection and detailed report on a wider range of issues
  • A description of visible defects and potential problems caused by hidden flaws
  • An outline of repair options and the likely consequences of inactivity
  • Advice for your legal advisers and details of serious risks and dangerous conditions.
The surveyor may be able to provide an estimate of costs for identified repairs if agreed with you in advance as an additional cost.
The Building Survey Level Three report (Survey only) does not include a valuation.

Buy To Let

Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018 (‘the Act’). The Act came into force on 20 March 2019. It is designed to ensure that all rented accommodation is fit for human habitation, at the beginning of a tenancy, and throughout. Fines for infringement of regulations can exceed £30,000, so it’s essential to ensure your property is well-maintained and safe.
No other survey considers how the construction and condition of the home will affect the way tenants live within it. The two are inextricably linked, and only by considering them together can you ensure the ongoing comfort and safety of your tenants. You get all the features of the Home Condition Survey, plus
  • A review of the 29 potential hazard profiles listed under the Housing Health & Safety Rating System (used by local authorities to prosecute landlords in the Private Rented Sector).
  • A Decent & Safe Homes (DASH) report that highlights health and safety deficiencies, allowing you to put them right before you get a complaint
  • Cross-referencing of health and safety issues with relevant descriptions of property condition.
  • Compiled by a specialist residential surveyor who has undergone specific training to deliver this unique product.
