Homebuyers Report

After a  property survey or homebuyers report has been carried out, most surveyors and solicitors will advise their clients to have the gas appliances, or the plumbing and heating installations tested prior to purchasing a property. This will not only help the buyer make an informed decision, but if any defects are discovered the purchaser can be aware of the estimated cost of any repairs. It may also help the purchaser budget effectively for any necessary work that is required, and possibly negotiate a lower purchase price. This is why it is a good idea to have an expert opinion on hand to let you know exactly what you are getting when considering buying a new home.
Our engineers are qualified to carry out gas safety inspections and certification for home owners and prospective purchasers.

We can offer 3 levels of inspection – Silver, Gold, Platinum – including plumbing systems, heating systems, gas appliances, gas meter and visible pipe-work to confirm compliance with regulations and safe operation.
We can also advise you of any pre-existing or potential problems . Our homebuyers report will not only give you peace of mind but a detailed summary of the installation of the property.
