Trust us to make buying a home easier

Buying a property is a huge emotional and financial commitment. Our advice and information will provide you with the reassurance and peace of mind that you need.


Our services

We work mainly with residential properties across West and North Yorkshire. As independent, RICS registered surveyors, we offer three core services – the right one depends on your property and individual requirements. We start with a no obligation consultation. We also know one size does not always fit all so can provide professional, bespoke advice, tailored to your needs.


We inspect the property you want to purchase then provide a short report, detailing the open market and building insurance valuation.

Homebuyer report

This essential report provides a snapshot of the overall condition of the property and identifies areas that need further investigation.

Building survey

This is a more detailed report about the condition of a property, recommended for unusual or dilapidated properties or those which have known problems.

How we work

Hornes Surveyors is here to help you in all matters relating to residential property. Whether you’re buying your first home, downsizing, investing in a ‘doer-upper’ we’re here to reassure you that that property you’re buying is just right for you.

We provide honest, straightforward, practical and pragmatic advice about the biggest purchase you are ever likely to make. Our job is to help you know exactly what you’re buying. We use plain English in all our reports and a simple traffic light system to highlight any issues that may be present. It means you can make a fully informed decision and negotiate a final price before you exchange contracts.

Your surveyor will call you immediately after an inspection to discuss initial findings – no waiting anxiously for days for a report to appear in your inbox or on your doormat! Knowledgeable and approachable, you can also meet your surveyor at our Baildon office if necessary, where they will walk you through the report and images to ensure complete peace of mind.

Whether it’s a flat or country house with grounds and outbuildings, we cover all residential dwellings. We believe there is no problem that cannot be resolved in residential property. Please call 01274 584988 for a quote or visit our contact page.
