How Much Does a Measured Survey Cost?

Frustratingly we haven’t got an easy answer this question as the cost of a measured survey has so many factors that influence the price.

Key things that influence the cost of a measured survey include:

  • Size of the property to be surveyed.
  • The level of detail to be required.
  • The distance from the survey companies office (travel costs).
  • How accurate the survey needs to be.

For a typical 3 bedroom house with floor plans, elevations and sections you can expect to pay between £1000 and £2000 from an experience measured building survey company.

The cost of the survey includes the actual site visit to measure up and the production of drawings in PDF and CAD formats. This all depends on the size and location of the site, the surveyors’ experience and greediness of the surveying company!

Getting the best price combined with a great survey that is useful, accurate and produced by a reputable company is important! The worst-case scenario is paying over the odds for a measured survey and receiving poor quality drawings that are inaccurate, difficult to manipulate and turned around late.

Example Measured Survey Costs

Here we give you three examples of how much we charged to undertake three fairly standard measured building surveys. The costs quoted included a site survey and producing drawings in CAD and PDF format. We have listed the drawings we provided for each job.

Please note that the costs quoted are heavily based on the distance to the site. Our travel costs are charged from our office in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex.
