Derbyshire Surveyors is the trading name of Wilkins Vardy’s survey and professional valuation department. Our survey team is led by experienced RICS qualified chartered building surveyor Dan Elliott based in the Chesterfield office, but operating throughout the Derbyshire, South Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire areas.  A range of professional survey and valuation services are available, as listed below:

Building Survey

Commonly referred to as a structural survey, this report is particularly suited to large, old or unusual properties and can be tailored to the needs of the client and type of building.

Property Condition Report

The property condition report is a condensed version of the Homebuyers Survey, with the same level of on site inspection.

Energy Performance Certificate

Derbyshire Surveyors also employ a team of residential and commercial energy assessors who can produce all levels of certificates at very competitive prices.

Homebuyers Report

This is a much more detailed inspection and report designed to give the purchaser useful information, in a user friendly format designed by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.


This is a limited inspection of the property.  Internal and external elements are briefly looked at together with a head and shoulders roof void inspection.  Only obvious significant defects that affect value are commented on together with any legal matters such as alterations, rights of way etc.
