Is the house you are thinking of buying, or the shop you are considering leasing, structurally sound, or will it cost you a fortune in maintenance? Are you sure you have the expertise to recognise the signs/symptoms of building faults and correctly diagnose the cure?
With a history which can be traced back over 160 years Stilings Chartered Surveyors have just that expertise. The present directors Tim and Dennis Pywell, between them have over 50 years experience of inspecting properties in Somerset from their offices in Taunton, the county town, and Bridgwater, and providing clear understandable advice to their clients in relation to surveys and valuations, on the condition of houses and all other types of land and buildings.
They can equally well advise you on the state of repair of a terraced house, a detached mansion or business premises. So unless you are confident in your own ability to see through the gloss presented by the agent or vendor to the true condition of the structure and fabric of the building, you should consider asking Stilings to advise you on the condition of the property, of likely foreseeable maintenance and repair, and the normal expectation for repair in any age of building.
Stilings do not restrict themselves to providing advice simply in connection with the purchase of buildings but have the experience to assist throughout the whole cycle of the development process of valuing and negotiating the sale or purchase of land for building whether of a single plot or many acres for development or redevelopment of residential and commercial property, designing the house or building and obtaining Planning and Building Regulations consents, selection of contractors and pricing, supervision of the construction process and the handing over of the finished product.
Or, if the existing house or building is not quite what you wish, Stilings can assist with advice on alterations, the design of extensions and additions again following through to the hand-over of the completed job.
