Our report will enable you to make an informed and objectively based decision on your proposed purchase.   Two different types of Home-buyer Survey are now available for French property – uniquely from Surveyfrance.

Building Surveys

Very detailed, fully describing the construction as well as the condition of all accessible parts of a building, this type of survey comprises a full inspection followed by a very comprehensive and detailed report, including recommendations for repairs or further investigations in respect of any serious defects or suspected defects.


Available only from Surveyfrance – a totally practical, quick and concise new type of survey, suitable for all types of residential property.  A Concise Property Appraisal is intended to give a balanced, easily understood report on the overall state of repair of the property. 


The survey inspection comprises a full, detailed examination of the building and services, just like a Building survey inspection, followed by advice in detail on any significant defects found or suspected and recommendations for appropriate remedial works where necessary.


Both types of survey include:

£      An overall assessment to put any defects in perspective

£      Full colour photographs

£      Approximate room sizes

£      A verbal report within 24 hours wherever possible

£      The written report within 5-10 days (according to type)

£      Fixed fee agreed in advance and confirmed in writing
