PRE-PURCHASE SURVEYS

surveylink france have been found to be competative on the cost of surveys by including all travel expenses and disbursements within the quotation.

The fee depends not only on which survey option is commissioned, but also by many other factors, such as size, the general and specific condition, number of defects found (which directly influences the length and complexity of the report) - and not by the property’s price.  An appropriate photographic record is included.

A fee is quoted in advance so that you know where you stand which can be paid in sterling or euros and unless there are unusual circumstances will be charged after the survey has been completed.  This not only speeds up the process of appointment but gets the property information to the client without payment delays.
