We care!

It’s not just another survey to us, it’s our passion. We take pride in what we do and aim to go above and beyond for all our customers to ensure satisfaction and most of all, peace of mind. We promise to call you within 24 hours of the survey being carried out to discuss our report and inform you of any hidden defects we found on survey.

We're RICS regulated.

We are extremely proud to be members of RICS (Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors), the worlds leading regulatory body within our industry. All our surveyors are RICS qualified or working towards qualification. So, you can be sure that we work to the highest possible standard ensuing complete satisfaction for all our customers.   

We’re not just surveyors, we’re property experts.

We might be a small business but between us we have over two decades of experience within the surveying and general property industry, including estate agency and mortgage broking. There’s little we don’t know about property, which helps should you need to renegotiate a purchase price with a seller. To make sure our teams’ expertise is ever-expanding, we partake in annual continuous professional development.

We keep it smart, simple and efficient.

It’s our mission to make sure that our reports are user friendly, clear, simple to understand and jargon free. We use state-of-the-art modern software and hardware to ensure that we can offer comprehensive reports within 5 working days from the initial survey.

We’ve got you covered.

Not only are we members of RICS, we also have professional indemnity insurance cover up to £1,000,000 per claim giving you peace of mind.
