“The Surveyor has been this morning, and she’s a credit to the organisation. Very timely, professional and clear in explaining things and answering questions”.
Tony Froud
We are so pleased with our purchase. Thank you for your advice and particularly for your recommendations. We are very pleased with your work; everything was done on time and to our satisfaction.
Tim Larner
You were very generous with your time in briefing us as to the issues we faced in taking on the project and explaining the weaknesses with the house, including the work we need to budget for in putting things right during our – hopefully short – tenure. Very interested to have the details of your forthcoming publication. I’m sure we could learn some more by buying that!
N Heath
Thanks for efficient service, the report overall seems fine and I will find out about the lpg and septic tank points raised in it. Thanks once again and I will recommend your services to friends and family if they ever need them.
Nikki Rohlfing
“As a first time buyer, there are lots of daunting tasks and processes, often involving people you are never quite sure if they are helping or advising you in the best way. It was therefore such a relief when I met John to finally have someone in the process who was clearly passionate about his job and an expert on houses. Alongside the written report, he always had time to discuss the property in depth, providing plenty of personal guidance and advice. I cannot say how much this helps in terms of feeling confident and knowledgeable going forward with such a big decision.
Steve B
“I cannot thank you enough – absolutely amazing service. A consummate professional and great to learn from. Cool, calm, confident and funny too, putting us completely at ease

Thanks Jon”

Sarah M
“Jon showed us all the challenges, but also the joys of buying a property. He was extremely helpful, not only now, but also in the future. Our minds are now full of knowledge and can make certain decisions, through his input in the first instance

Thoroughly recommended”

Chris Hydes

It is very easy to complain about the many services these days which are less than ideal from the likes of the utility services, Sky, EE and ebay sellers, so it is a pleasant change to be able to give well deserved praise.

Further evidence of the quality of your service is confirmed by your prompt clarification of my query.

Getting a survey might get you a better deal on your property. Did you know that 79% of those that relied on a Mortgage Valuation, when questioned, agreed that a comprehensive survey could potentially allow you to negotiate a better deal with the seller!

A survey is an essential part of saving you money!

A Schedule of Condition is a detailed and factual record of the condition of a property. The Schedule of Condition is usually prepared for contractual reasons to establish the condition of the property at a set date in time, usually the commencement of a lease agreement or in party wall agreements, this can be carried out on either residential or commercial premises.

A Schedule of Condition can be instructed by the following:

  • Landlord
  • Tenant
  • Employer
  • Contractor
  • Neighbour

Having a Schedule of Condition completed by an independent expert provides greater gravitas to the record of condition in the event any party raises a claim or negotiation.

There is a big difference between how a Schedule of Condition is carried out and used, and a Condition Survey. The Schedule of Condition is a record of the condition of a building with descriptive annotations and photographs, usually appended to a legal document, whereas a Condition Survey is prepared to identify the condition of the building and also what works are required.
