Robinson Elliott Chartered Surveyors are based in the heart of Sussex in the ancient market town of East Grinstead. We’re perfectly located to carry out Building Surveys or a Home Buyer Report in East Sussex as well as being in easy reach of West Sussex, Kent, Surrey and London.

We have extensive experience of surveying the many different types of property you find in East Sussex, including coverage in the following towns and cities:

In the coastal towns of Brighton, Hastings and Eastbourne you’ll find a rich diversity of modern apartments, Regency and Victorian terraces and 20th century family homes. There are still fishermen’s cottages too, as well as newly built homes of all shapes and sizes. From a surveyor’s point of view, we have a detailed knowledge of how buildings can be affected by their proximity to the sea and exposure to salty sea air and high winds.

While the ancient towns of Lewes and Rye aren’t particularly large, they still offer a range of homes for all with a taste for living surrounded by history. The small market towns of Crowborough and Uckfield blend the old and the new, with choices for a range of budgets. It’s also easy to be drawn to the wealth of picturesque villages and rural spots throughout East Sussex, nestling around Ashdown Forest, the Sussex Weald and the South Downs.

We pride ourselves on detailed knowledge of the county and of its diverse housing stock. Whether you’re considering a contemporary apartment overlooking a marina, a timber-framed woodland cottage or a practical family home, we are able to provide expert building surveys and home buyer reports.

And that means you can purchase in complete confidence that you know exactly the condition of the home you’re buying.

Building Survey

A report for more unusual buildings, for example: listed, built before 1800, of eccentric construction, or those that have or will have extensive renovations.

Cost Assessment

This report will determine how much your property would cost to rebuild from scratch, avoiding the risk of being underinsured or paying too much.
