HomeBuyers Surveys in Cornwall

HOMEBUYERS

Our team covers the length and breadth of the Cornwall, specialising in HomeBuyers Surveys and over the years we have helped thousands of people buy their new home.  Our surveyors are here to help you through every step of the process and are at hand to discuss any concerns you may have.

The HomeBuyers Survey is particularly suited to a property of modern construction but is also suitable for many older properties.

Each part of the property is inspected, its construction is described and then its condition is assessed using the Rating System and we tell you what you need to do.

DowlingDodd are Licensed by the RICS to produce these surveys across Cornwall and the Isle of Scilly. The reports are issued to clients electronically to your email address in PDF format, an example of which can be found here.
