Building consultancy services for residential landlords and homeowners

We understand the importance of ensuring that the purchaser fully recognises the condition of their property prior to completion of sale.

At Sillence Hurn, we provide pre-purchase building surveys that provide a clear and concisely formatted report to allow the purchaser to anticipate any defects present, repairs and maintenance requirements. We also provide pre-purchase surveys for new build properties. As part of this survey we check the warranty documentation and advise of any limitations or exclusions in the warranty to allow the purchaser to understand future liabilities and maintenance requirements.

The level of service provided at Sillence Hurn is in line with the RICS Building Survey, which is the most comprehensive of all building surveys. We would recommend this level of survey to all property purchasers.​
