We offer independent building surveys. You are our client and we are employed to serve your best interests. All too often people purchase a property, influenced by lovely decorative finishes and assuming that all correct permissions for any works are in place. Lack of a proper inspection can lead to costly challenges becoming apparant later on......go into the purchase with your eyes wide open

Our client commisioned a survey of a small cottage with a two storey extension to the rear. We noted a lack of any ground floor walls to support the first floor and thus some hidden structural works. A check with building control found that no building regulations were in place and that the property had been subject to unauthorised and potentially dangerous works. Had the purchase proceeded as was, our client could have been liable to thousands of pounds in rectification costs...

"Many thanks for sticking with it and for all your patience, advice and professionalism. I certainly couldn`t have done it without you!"


"Many thanks, Karl. I had made notes to that effect when we spoke, but of course cannot now find those notes. Very good of you to repeat the information. Thanks again for your help over these last few months. "


"We thank you for your most comprehensive and thorough RICS Homebuyer Report, and your prompt and informative responses to our queries."



"Major investments require full investigations to ensure decisions are made with all the correct facts"
