Survey fees many occur when
- Meeting on-site at a set time
- Very large properties
- Houses a long drive from base
- Houses with none-specialist problems unlikely to be of commercial interest to Dampco
- Urgent surveys
- Basement conversions are chargeable as they are expensive to conduct
This is a commercial decision based on costs and likely outcomes. We will agree any cost before proceeding; between £30 and £60+VAT. Refunds apply if work is carried out by Dampco.
Charges are always agreed before arranging a survey.
