How we work

Who we are:

This website is an e-commerce site for a range of Building Surveying services to allow customers of the award-winning Elvet Chartered Surveyors to place orders online.

Elvet Chartered Surveyors was established in 2007 and has grown to achieve an enviable reputation in the UK construction industry, boasting a diverse range of commercial and residential clients alike.

We are regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), which provides our customers with confidence that the professional services and advice we provide meets their exacting standards. Furthermore, all of our surveyors have a clean criminal record; which we have a duty to continually monitor using the government's Disclosure and Baring Service (DBS) check.

How we work:

We publish all of our fees online, so you can receive an instant competitive quotation at the click of a button.

After adding your order to the online shopping basket and ‘checking out’ you will receive an email notification confirming the details of your purchase. The job will then be assigned to one of our local, friendly and professional surveyors who will be in touch within 24-hours to confirm the appointment with an automated email. Upon completion of the survey your order will be fulfilled within 1-3 business days and the product will be issued electronically to your email address.

Using this streamlined service, we have successfully delivered thousands of surveys for homeowners across the UK.  

Corporate account:

For business clients, or individuals seeking bulk or repeat orders, we provide access to login to our online portal, which will enable you to track multiple orders at key milestones throughout the project delivery, ensuring that you are fully aware of progress up until fulfillment of each order. The user-friendly interface will enable you to download both current and historic reports and monitor our performance in line with key performance indicators (KPI’s).

This simple, hassle-free approach has enabled the company to fast become the preferred supplier of many estate agents, developers, solicitors and social housing providers across the country.
