Our surveying team

All of our surveyors are qualified with either AssocRICS, MRICS or FRICS status from our professional body, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). Our surveyors are also approved ‘Registered Valuers’ meaning they are subject to additional regulation for their valuation work.

All of our surveyors are local to the area they work in; either being a home-based staff surveyor or a consultant from a local partner firm.

Our Head Office is based in Nottingham. This is where appointments are booked from and administered.

Mortgage valuations

Home surveys

SDL Surveying’s surveyors can undertake a range of home surveys including Homescore condition type reports, RICS Homebuyer reports and RICS building surveys. These are reports for a buyer of a property and not a mortgage lender. The surveyor will need to carry out a longer more in-depth inspection of the property. When the appointment is booked we will indicate if a survey is being completed.

    Very professional, courteous and followed the Covid protocol that had been sent to … read more us prior to the appointment. Only reason for dropping a star was that the surveyor arrived 15 minutes later than the two hour window. Understand that these things happen but would have appreciated a call.

    I had the displeasure of entertaining Countrywide surveyors at my property whilst … read more in the process of a sale. This was not by choice... They managed to down value my property from £478k to £400k.
    Well, what a difference SDL were!
    The gent that came round was Covid secure, polite, warm and talkative.
    Whilst valuing this character property he asked all the right questions (Countrywide asked nothing and were in the property a max of 5 minutes), he did a thorough check of the house inside and out and surprise surprise concluded that the agreed sale price was accurate.
    100% a professional reputable business and I will be certainly be using them again in the future!
    Thank you SDL!
