Transcription and Typing Services


Transcription & Typing For Building Surveyors


We are skilled secretaries with over ten years experience in the building surveying business and as such we can offer this as our "specialist subject".  We provide a professional transcription service to Chartered Building Surveyors, producing Building Surveys, Schedules, Party Wall Awards, Expert Witness Reports, Specifications, Specific Defects Reports, Certificates for Payment etc. in line with your templates and specific requirements.  HomeBuyer Reports can be generated on line using your account access details, saving the report for you to edit and publish.


Our client base has expanded nationwide over the last year or so, as more and more surveyors in private practice discover the ease and convenience of outsourcing their transcription and typing requirements in the virtual world.  A surveyor may spend many hours inspecting a property for a pre-acquisition survey for a client - we can transcribe and present this report in an efficient and professional format using a preferred layout, within an agreed timescale. 


Since we have had many years within the surveying industry, we are familiar with the technical terminology associated with this profession, so you can be confident in our interpretation of your requirements, whether it be a building survey, expert witness report or general specification.  We know our "battens" from our "batons"; our "flaunching" from our "flaunting" and our "quoins" from our "coins".


Digital voice files can be emailed to Lexicon for transcription, or alternatively, please contact us if you have larger files to transfer.  You may have an old document, previously prepared on a typewriter, which we can transfer into a Word document for future amendment and use as necessary.

"Lexicon has been a life saver for me!  I have recently started up my own practice and in between juggling the logistics of setting up a new office space and liaising with clients - not to mention inspecting properties to prepare reports and drawings - there is little time left to actually sit down and get the words on paper to present to my clients.
Lexicon has taken this burden off me completely......a real time saver, not to mention a stress saver too!"
