As RICS Chartered Building Surveyors one of our key services is the surveying of property. We provide building surveys for a variety of properties both residential and commercial. Due to our multiple locations  we are able to provide building surveys across a whole range of different locations. Including the Newport and South Wales.











Residential Surveys


Purchasing your home is probably the biggest outlay you are ever going to make, therefore, it is vitally important that you are fully aware of the property's overall condition.


A suitable survey of the property can help uncover any work that may need to be done to the property before you buy it. many properties in the Newport area are historic and would benefit from a detailed survey to understand the maintenance requirements now and in the future.












How does our service differ from our competitors? We are not in the business of volume surveys, we provide bespoke quality surveys that are tailored to your needs as the client. This can include looking at specific items or options for refurbishment and extension. Due to our unique multi-disciplinary approach we provide an unrivaled after service, including where appropriate the drawing up of a schedule of repair works and project administration.  We will call you after the survey to discuss any major issues identified, our reports also contain an approximation of the costs involved to bring your new property in Newport up to a modern standard.


In order to proceed with a building survey in Newport, we will require you to agree to our terms and conditions, please feel free to call or email our offices to obtain a quotation and terms and conditions.


Types of survey


There are various types of survey that can be carried out, the survey you will require depends on the type of information that is needed and the age of the property.


As a buyer there are three main types of survey to choose from:


Valuation/condition report Newport

A valuation/condition report tells the lender how much the property is worth and will usually be carried out by your mortgage company if you need a mortgage to buy the property. These types of survey are usually best for very new properties.


Home buyer survey and valuation Newport

A home buyer survey reports on defects in the property, its condition and value. 


Full building survey Newport

This type of survey provides a more detailed report than the home buyer survey. We recommended these for older properties (1930's or older) or those that have been poorly maintained, in need of work, or simply for peace of mind.

As a RICS regulated building surveyor in Newport Western Building Consultants can provide most types of building survey. We can also provide advice on how to alter or extend your property including carrying out project management of the works in Newport.
