We are a team of professional building surveyors with expert knowledge and long experience of surveying historic houses, listed buildings and other period properties. We also survey new and modern homes, providing detailed and informative reports. We carry out surveys throughout the Eastern Region including Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.
About our surveys
We offer a range of survey options from a full and detailed inspection of a property through to an expert opinion on a specific structural issue; the choice very much depends on the property you have in mind. Before purchasing an older or more unusual property it is wise to have a thoroughly detailed inspection whereas a more conventional or more recent building may only require a brief inspection or a closer look at any specific concerns that are found.
A full and thorough inspection of a property
A highly detailed survey
Formerly known as a structural survey, a Building Survey will determine the extent of any problems and the scope of the work required to rectify them.
In addition to surveys of historic buildings and period properties, we offer a range of property-related services that include advice on Party Wall Matters, Land Registry Plans, Property Acquisition, Valuations, Rent Reviews and the provision of Expert Witness testimony. We also handle sales and lettings of commercial properties.
