Bradleys Chartered Surveyors
  • Toms Update
  • Budget Disappointment


    Issues regarding property were largely unaddressed in last autumn’s budget, and certainly I expected there to be at least some relaxation of stamp duty to higher priced properties in the spring budget just gone this month. However, property seems to be extremely low on Mr Hammond and Mrs May ‘s priority list. Something may happen this autumn but I think that it would be safe to assume that there will be no alteration to matters affecting the property market certainly until the autumn statement, and very likely that in the autumn statement any material changes to matters affecting property will be relatively minimal.


    It does look quite possible that interest rates will soon rise a little in the USA. This may have an effect on the UK, but I think it’s safe to assume that interest rates in the UK will remain low and if there is any increase it will be relatively minimal. Low interest rates look like they are here to stay for some considerable time, possibly years and possibly even decades.


    As spring approaches and the better weather ducks in, a few more properties will be coming onto the market. Hopefully this will help many areas where there is a shortage of property currently available.

  • About Us
  • Bradleys Surveyors are a firm of Chartered Surveyors with vast experience operating throughout the core of the West Country, providing a straightforward and thorough service throughout Cornwall, Devon, and Somerset.


    Our RICS accredited Surveyors can aid you in a wide range of property services such as a Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report to assist you with your house purchase or one of the various valuations we specialise in. We have expertise in both residential and commercial property to satisfy our many different clients.


    Recent research has revealed that up to 90% of the residential properties inspected today suffer from some kind of defect. As a result, many buyers are unknowingly setting themselves up with the average bill of £5,750 to overcome hidden problems which would have been acknowledged by one of our surveyors in a report often costing as little as 10% of that bill! For many purchasing a property will be the largest investment of their life so don’t delay in gaining friendly and comprehensive reassurance from one of our surveyors today!

  • Homebuyers Report
  • The RICS HomeBuyer Report is a user friendly document presenting clear recommendations to the client, providing that extra reassurance before commitment to purchase is made. Comments are made in respect of the interior and exterior structure, services, grounds and legal issues in conjunction with a traffic light condition rating system. The knowledge of any existing or potential areas of concern allows the client to make a reasoned and informed judgement on their future home.
