Design, Surveying & Planning for Property in Cornwall

“Understand your property in more detail with Inspire Design & Surveying”

Property Surveys are required when a bank, mortgage lenders and prospective buyers are looking for assurance that the property condition meets its stated financial value.

Director Gavin Hogg is an AssocRICS member of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors. We work in partnership with RICS affiliated companies’ providing fully detailed RICS reports based on an accurate assessment of the property condition, estimated costs for necessary repairs and to confirm its current state of repair to mortgage lenders.

On instruction of our surveying services, Inspire Design & Surveying will visit the subject property to carry out an inspection of both internal and external elements and in accordance with the RICS home survey & valuation standards.

Finally, a report will be submitted. We aim to be as efficient as possible to enable our clients to progress to the next stage.
