Property Surveyswith Team Property Services

A national network of highly experienced independent Chartered Surveyors ensuring that your RICS Homebuyer report is prepared by someone with expert local knowledge working to the highest levels of customer service

Why do I need my own survey?

Because before legally committing yourself, you can obtain answers from an objective and highly experienced expert to answer the following all important questions:

  • What is a reasonable price to pay for the property?
  • Are there any serious or urgent defects or specific risks which you need to take into account before committing yourself to probably the biggest single investment of your life?

Arranging your own survey is the simple, cost effective way to ensure your money is spent wisely and to avoid unpleasant – and perhaps expensive – surprises after moving in.

Do I still need my own survey if I already have a mortgage valuation report?

Most certainly – this is not just our advice but that of both the Consumers’ Association ‘Which?’ magazine and also the Council of Mortgage Lenders.

The mortgage valuation report is prepared not for you but your lender! It answers only the lender’s questions about whether the property offers suitable security for the loan. It is not a survey. You cannot rely on it to answer the questions that concern your personal interests or to give you details of the condition of the property – you may not even be provided with a copy.

What is the RICS Homebuyer Survey?

Based on a careful inspection by a Chartered Surveyor the Homebuyer Survey report will set out for you, in an easy to follow format the most important issues to consider when deciding whether to buy the property. Whether defects observed are serious or require urgent attention and if you need further advice before exchanging contracts such as electrical wiring or timber/damp specialist inspections. The report will include an open market valuation plus the surveyor’s opinion of the reinstatement cost of the property (which you will need for insurance purposes).

The RICS Homebuyer Report is a standard format survey and is designed for particular types of homes – houses, bungalow and flats of traditional type and construction and in apparently reasonable condition.

It identifies what the surveyor considers to be the most important issues. The surveyor will tell you whether defects are serious or urgent.

The Report focuses on matters that in the surveyor’s opinion,may affect the value of the property if they are not dealt with.

When is a RICS Homebuyer Survey not enough?

If the property is unusually built or run-down or you are planning a major conversion or renovation then a more comprehensive Full Building Survey may be more suitable for you, as this more detailed form of report can be specifically tailored to your needs.

A Full Building Survey will give you a more detailed assessment of the condition and construction of the property, as well as technical advice on any problems and work needed to put them right.

If required it can also include a valuation of the property as an agreed extra.

If you are interested in a Full Building Survey then we can provide you with an individual quotation, which will be based on the particular property that you are interested in.

What else should I know about the RICS Homebuyer Service?

It is an economical service. Because of the practical limits on the type of property and what the service covers, the RICS Homebuyer service is priced mid-range – more expensive than a mortgage valuation report, but cheaper than a building survey.

The surveyor’s main purpose in providing the service is to help you to:

  • take account of any repairs and replacements the property may need
  • consider what other expert advice you may need before exchanging contracts
  • make an informed decision on what is the fair market value of the property bearing in mind its state and condition

Arranging your own survey is the simple, cost effective way to ensure your money is spent wisely and to avoid unpleasant – and perhaps expensive – surprises after moving in.

You’re in safe hands

Each surveyor has professional indemnity insurance and there is a standard RICS compliant complaints handling procedure to give you extra protection.

Removals and Storagewith Team Property Services

Take the Risk Out of Moving Home

The weeks approaching your move can be an exciting time yet the prospects of such an upheaval can be pretty daunting. Team agents have teamed up with two of the U.K’s leading family owned removal companies; Robinsons and the Nightingale Group are both long standing members of the British Association of Removers (BAR) and adhere to a strict Code of Practice for customer care which is approved and monitored by the Office of Fair Trading (OFT). In the unlikely event of a problem arising, BAR operates a free conciliation service to resolve disputes fairly, quickly and efficiently.

Good Planning

A successful move is the result of good planning and preparation. You can employ all or part of the professional services offerd by our Removal partners to help you complete your move. If you prefer to pack yourself, our partners can offer advice on how to minimise the risk of damage. If you require storage, they are are able to n handle anything from a single box to the entire contents of your home, for however long you decide.

Simple Process

The TPS Sales Desk will call you well in advance of your planned move, as there are certain things we can help you prepare for. We will quote for your move over the telephone – our arrangement with your team agent means we have been able to streamline our process and it will not necessarily be necessary for our removers to take up your time by visiting you personally. You will be asked to pay a small booking deposit – usually £50 – so that we can ensure a Removal Van is available for you when your final completion date is eventually agreed.

You will then be sent the formal documentation together with printed Terms and Conditions for you to sign and return. You will have seven days to advise us if you decide not to proceed in which case your deposit will be returned. There is nothing worse, in the final days before you move when the removal date seems to be constantly changing, than having to ring around desperately trying to locate a removal firm capable of moving you on the required date. By planning early and booking with us well in advance we can guarantee to move you when you want to move.

Packing Up

Packing is an important part of the service, after all, you want to be sure that everything arrives safely and intact! Our partners both employ expert packing teams who undergo specialist training and are regularly updated with the latest packing materials and techniques, so you can rest assured that everything from your favourite mirror to the family crystal will be packed safely for transportation. If you choose to pack yourself, we can provide the necessary materials well in advance of moving day.

Moving Day

When it comes to the day of the move, the removal crews know that emotions are likely to be running high and will act in a professional, helpful and friendly manner. Of course it goes without saying, that the carpets and surfaces in your home will be carefully protected from knocks, scrapes and muddy boots. This helps to ensure that everything arrives at your new home in good condition. For all items professionally packed, you will be offered a complete unpacking service. Larger items will be unwrapped and put in place while smaller items are unpacked and placed on a surface making it easy for you to make your new house become a home. All packing materials are then taken away.

Our mission is to help you move smoothly and safely with the minimum of fuss and bother - let us take the load.
