Our services

Pre-purchase surveys

Pre-purchase surveys

Our structural and condition property survey provides all the facts you need before you buy.


We'll visit and assess your chosen property, providing an impartial, jargon-free, professional report with technical and practical advice throughout. Choose from a number of comprehensive report formats to suit your needs and budget.

Our RICS-regulated pre-purchase survey covers the main property, plus any outbuildings and pool. Along with your written report, we offer a complete photographic record and fire/rebuild valuation, which some French insurers require.

We'll assess the property's condition, quality and longevity of renovations, access, security, and other key areas, as well as a technical analysis of diagnostic reports.


You'll also receive indicative cost estimates for defects and any recommended upgrades, alterations, conversions or building works, so you don’t face any financial surprises.

Post-purchase inspections

Our RICS-regulated post-purchase inspection service offers an independent, technical assessment of any specific problems or defects you may find.


We'll provide you with a clear, comprehensive report with a full assessment of the issues, recommended solutions, and indicative cost estimates for repairs.

Your report may also be used to support a claim through your insurance company.

Pre-sales surveys

When selling your French house privately online, it's vital to give a potential purchaser all the facts before they buy.


Our clear, comprehensive pre-sales survey gives both you and potential buyers a complete, technical overview of the property and its condition, highlighting key strengths and recommended improvements. 

Tailored to meet your needs and the size of the property, our professional pre-sales survey is impartial and fully regulated by RICS.


We'll report on any major defects, including those found within standard diagnostics reports, as well as damp, structure and condition.


What's more, your written report will include indicative cost estimates, so that all parties know where they stand financially. 

New build handovers

New build handovers

If you're unable to attend the handover inspection of a new build property before sale completion, why not take advantage of our handover service?


As your representative, we'll be there to inspect the property. We can also create an independent snagging list if you're unsure of what to look for.


We'll call you to discuss our findings, giving you all the facts before we sign any completion documentation on your behalf.
