Neil Hewitt Building Surveyor

Business overview

Building Surveys.

I am an Independent surveyor: I am not tied to any estate agents or mortgage companies, and I provide a very thorough and objective survey of a home. I am registered with RICS, and a Chartered Building Engineer, and The Chartered Institute of Environmental Health.

I only offer The RICS Building Survey (formerly known as a structural survey), which is their level three survey, and I do not conduct their level two Homebuyer Survey. Please note that I do not conduct valuations, preferring to concentrate my training on that of the condition of a property, formally known as Building Pathology.

The survey provides considerably more information than a mortgage valuation, which is in effect purely a valuation for the benefit of the lender, and that does not provide a survey for the buyer.

The survey can be adapted to the particular type of property, with an appropriate level of fee. The loft is inspected, if accessible, as are the cellar or sub floor voids, if accessible.

I use a camera on a pole to inspect the roof etc. The majority of my clients, are cash purchasers.

Quite simply ‘The Best Surveyor in the World’!

Having used Neil’s services several times I can safely say that he’s a highly knowledgeable and professional Surveyor; fully comprehensive reports come through within a matter of days, and he takes the time to answer (a multitude of!) questions over the phone. He especially put me at ease as a first-time buyer, and he helped make a daunting process a lot easier.

I highly recommend him, and he’ll always be my first port of call should I move again.

Carried out two house surveys for us in Ipswich. This was an immense help in the purchase decision and in planning the work to be done. Answered all the right questions. Detailed, methodical and good photos of the roof. Excellent job.

Great attention to detail - superb surveyor

Amazing building surveyor who went over and beyond. The survey managed to help us save several thousand pounds on the purchase price which helped us to make the necessary improvements needed as a result of recommendations. Fantastic surveyor and will definitely recommend to friends and family locally too.
