Reasons for a survey!

As we get out our ladders to crawl up into a loft, we often hear vendors say: “I have never even looked up there!”

At this particular property, it was a good job we did!

During a recent inspection for RICS Homebuyers Report, at a property in Lancashire, our surveyor discovered this unsupported chimney breast hanging above a bedroom!

This is just a typical example to highlight the importance of the need for a survey prior to purchasing a property.

Our surveyors are trained to follow the trail of suspicion and uncover potential defects and hidden dangers such as this!

Lea Hough Chartered Surveyors specialise in undertaking survey inspections of all types of property, from our office bases in Blackburn, Preston, Clitheroe and Lancaster.


“We had a Schedule of Condition carried out on a Commercial Property. From vacant possession to our proposed completion date we were really tight on time. Gary managed to carry out the inspection and write a very thorough report in the time needed to ensure we hit our completion date. The price of the report was also extremely competitive. I would recommend Lea Hough to anyone looking for a Professional Surveyors with excellent service & communication at a competitive price.”
