Richard Stacey provided excellent impartial advice for renovation and remodelling work on our home. Richard has saved... us significant building costs and has led to our living space being far more practical and future-proof than it would have been, had we continued with our original plans. His professionalism and knowledge is matched by his people skills and he instantly made us feel at ease. I would definitely recommend him, you wont be disappointed.read more

I contacted Webster’s surveyors regarding a property and from the first phone call to the last I found this company... efficient, polite and professional. They are very reasonably priced, they attended the property quickly and the report was also with me quickly. The report was thorough and very easy to understand, and has helped me greatly with the issues found, which will determine if I proceed or not, potentially saving me thousands of pounds.Cannot recommend enough.read more

rics home surveys



Buying a home can be a costly exercise, especially if shortly after your purchase you discover that certain aspects of your home need urgent attention. Home Surveys are a great way to ensure the property you are buying is fit for purpose and can save you money in the long run.

By instructing an independent Chartered Surveyor to undertake a home survey, you will be informed about potential defects the property may have. This in turn can help you negotiate a better purchase price or put your mind at ease that the hundreds of thousands of pounds or more you are spending is relatively safe. 

At Websters Surveyors we undertake all types of Home Surveys ranging from Home Level 1 Survey (Condition report)s, to the popular Level 2 Survey (HomeBuyer Survey) and even carry out full Level 3 Survey (Level 3 Survey (Building Survey))s. Most of our inspections are carried out by a Chartered Surveyor specialising in building pathology with over 30 years of post-qualification experience.




why use websters surveyors?


Websters Surveyors is a firm of Chartered Surveyors regulated by the RICS. Our growing team deals with all aspects of residential surveys and valuations and in addition to this we also carry out Leasehold reform negotiations for our clients and, where necessary, can act as Independent Experts in Court matters.

We offer a very tailored approach to each valuation and survey that is undertaken by our team and we are always at hand to answer any questions you may have.

Prior to any instruction, we aim to provide helpful advice and guidance on what type of survey or valuation you may need if you are unsure.

Instructing us is easy as we use a simple online form that takes a couple of minutes to complete and we provide most reports within a week of instruction.




market valuation reports



Our Market Valuation reports assess what we consider to be the most appropriate evidence to determine a value. Different Surveyors may have different opinions and getting it wrong could be very costly. That’s why we go above and beyond RICS requirements to ensure that our reports are well thought out, well documented and importantly prove very reliable to our clients. 

Many tools such as Zoopla use software that analyses market data and trends to produce an estimated valuation. Many online companies are now also offering quick and fast valuations that use an Automated Valuation Model. 

We don’t believe either of these provide the level of accuracy that our clients reasonably expect. For example, they can often see identical neighbouring properties at completely different Market Values. There is no substitution for good quality professional advice from someone who is experienced and has access to large amounts of evidence, some of it often not publicly available without paying hefty subscription fees like we do. 

At Websters Surveyors we are of the opinion that valuation is not a science or a simple math calculation but is an art. Like with Art you need an independent judge to interpret the variables and look at the wider picture from an outsiders perspective. Our RICS Registered Valuers are trained to critically analyse the compelling market data and trends, but also how to take a step back and look at the wider picture and other factors that can impact value.
