Why Buchanan Mitchell Stephenson

Buchanan Mitchell Stephenson provides a full range of property related advice from commencement to completion. This involvement with clients can begin with a pre purchase building survey including valuation, then provide full architectural drawings for refurbishment and extension work, with the added information of estimated building work costings and valuation.

Our client’s need to know the answers to a great number of questions, however the most significant revolves around costings, budget and valuation. We can offer the advice of what potential work could be carried out, the estimated cost of the project and provide an opinion of the estimated end value following completion of the work. This initial advice provides clients the information to make informed decisions without having to deal with several other professionals.

Clients can simply use us for whichever service they need, whether that is a professional valuation, building survey or architectural design service, or a combination of what we can offer.

We regularly provide a building survey report on a property purchase and then provide architectural design for an extension, submit a planning application and gain building regulation approval for a client.

“Clients wish to know the condition of the house they are buying, they also value advice relating to what works they can carry out, the estimated cost to carry out the building work, and the end value of the property when they have completed the works” says Michael Stephenson.

The property buying process can be extremely stressful and challenging at times, along with construction projects and building work. We have the experience and skills to be able to provide the right guidance and information for clients to make an informed decision, so that they can enjoy living and working in a property they can be proud of.
