Bradleys Chartered Surveyors
  • Toms Update
  • Electric Property Market


    The property market has confounded the doom-mongers. Apart from a shaky first couple of weeks after lock down, the property market has leapt into action. Estate Agents are reporting record months, Surveyors just about coping with the level of work, and prices holding firm (even in quite a few case exceeding expectations).


    The reason for this is down to really low sustained interest rates (and unlikely to increase for a very long time), but mostly from the pent up demand from the early part of the summer suddenly being released. For some reason it appears the general public have an unusually optimistic view of the long term.


    This has taken just about everyone in the business by surprise.


    On top of that, the Chancellor suddenly charges in and announces a drastic cut in Stamp Duty to give the property market even more encouragement. This will last until the end of March next year and clearly the Government is hoping that the property market will keep going until this period and then the normal spring/summer market will take over. The most important aspect of this Stamp Duty cut is that it indicates that Boris and Rishi see a busy property market as an essential component of the economic recovery. I have to say this is a relief after George Osborne’s punishing Stamp Duty rates, and Mark Carney’s war on Buy To Let.

  • 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.
