Additional Optional Extra’s on Surveys
In addition to our standard services, White Horse Surveyors also offer several additional optional extras with our surveys.
CANCELLATION PROTECTION – all Products
If you decide to cancel your survey or valuation there will be cancellation charges which include:
A £99 administrative fee, if we receive notice of cancellation within 5 working days of the booked appointment date. If there is a last-minute cancellation, we must receive written notification by 17:00 on the day prior to the appointment. Otherwise the customer is liable for the full cost of the survey.
Our customers can also register for our comprehensive cancellation protection charge. With this a standard £19 fee will cover for any cancellation made up to the day that the actual survey takes place. However, if we do not receive notification of the cancellation by 17:00 on the day prior to the appointment, the full survey fee will still be charged. Please note that our cancellation protection must be taken out when you make your booking.

Property Value £0 – £600K £150.00 for a valuation

ADDITIONAL VALUATION – BUILDING SURVEY

COST OF REPAIRS – BUILDING SURVEY ONLY
The addition of this service means that the surveyor will provide the estimated price of rectifying any identifited faults or defects. This is determined using a RICS approved calculation, as well as the surveyor’s knowledge and experience.
The inclusion of this estimate can assist a customer in the renegotiation of the purchase price with the vendor. Alternatively, it could also mean that the vendor might correct these issues before the sale of the property at their own expense.
A cost of repairs can be added to any Building Survey for an additional charge of £150.
