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.

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



HomeBuyer reports are the most popular surveys undertaken by Chartered Surveyors for clients looking to buy a property. They are suitable for almost all properties and provide useful details about the health of the building. They can commonly be used to help negotiate the purchase price if there are any faults in the building.

Level 3 Survey (Level 3 Survey (Building Survey))s (formerly known as Structural Surveys), are usually recommended when a building is has a number of period features, is listed, extended or in very poor condition. They usually provide a lot of detail but are the most expensive of the three home surveys. 

Level 1 Survey (Condition report)s are the least common. These provide comparatively less detail and are often undertaken by clients looking to buy new build properties or refurbished properties.

The purpose of home surveys are to put your mind at ease when purchasing a property because the last thing you need is to find out the building needs major repairs. 

Our reports can help you either proceed whilst fully informed, renegotiate the price or request that the seller undertakes repairs before contracts are exchanged.




rics red book valuation reports


At Websters Surveyors we have 5 professional valuers that are all able to carry out ‘Red Book’ Reports, all of which are RICS Registered Valuers. 

When requesting a ‘Red Book’ Report you can be rest assured that you will be receiving an impartial, fair and honest valuation. The RICS ‘Red Book’ does not explain how to value a property but it gives the RICS qualified valuer mandatory rules and guidelines they have to keep too. By following these it ensures that your have a clear and concise valuation report.

At Websters Surveyors all of our Valuation Reports follow the mandatory rules and guidelines that the ‘Red Book’ instructs even when the report does not necessarily need to be ‘Red Book’ compliant. By doing this we can guarantee continuity and professionalism in all of Valuation Reports. 




court reports



Websters Surveyors provides Court compliant Valuation reports, following the rules set out in the Lord Chancellors Civil Procedure Rules (CPR 35) 1998. 

We can act as a party appointed expert but more commonly as a Single Joint Expert.

Where reports are court compliant, our duty of care is to the judicial process so our reports are completely independent. Quite often our fees are split 50-50 between the parties in dispute but however we are appointed and whoever is paying our fees, the opinions we provide are completely impartial. 

We also follow guidance by our regulatory body, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, including the RICS Red Book and guidance on acting as an Expert Witness. 

Our three team members who provide Court compliant reports are Chartered Surveyors and RICS Registered Valuers who between them share over 70 years industry experience.
