Free phone us for Building Surveys
Our highly qualified Independent Surveyors can offer Building Surveys also known as Structural Surveys, Home Buyers Reports, Commercial Surveys, Engineer's Reports and Specific Defects Reports. We can also carry out Independent Valuations but please note these are not for bank lending but are to advise you how much we feel the property is really worth.
If you have a property problem we may even already have written an article on it and we would refer you to the many articles we have on our free articles pages CLICK HERE
Please free phone us on 0800 298 5424 for a chat with a surveyor. All our surveyors are independent and are not attached to an estate agents, bank or building society and will offer you impartial advice.
Jeff Howell, Chartered Building Surveyor, Chartered Builder and Author
For those of you who have not come across Jeff Howell we would introduce him as Jeff Howell the nuclear engineer (well that is what he tells us his degree was about), sometime bricklayer and chartered building surveyor.
Below are some of the articles about Jeff Howell.
Why have one of our independent building surveys?
Caveat emptor means buyer beware and is why we feel as Independent Building Surveyors with a great interest in property like Jeff Howell, you need to have a building survey to find out if there are any problems within the property. The estate agent certainly will not advise you of any problems with the property but we most definitely will!
Remember the Building Surveyor that you employ will be the only person working for you with your interests at heart.
We have developed our surveys over many years and listened to feedback from our clients and we continue to listen. We believe our surveys are easy to understand and describe issues clearly.
We include lots of photos and sketches
We use many photos and sketches (like this one regarding roof tingle) which we have commissioned in our building survey reports to make the problems as clear and as easy to understand as possible.

What do the circles and ovals mean in our building surveys?
The circles and ovals in our building reports are a system that we used within our structural surveys, building surveys and schedules of condition to highlight problem areas so that you are not left wondering what the problem is.

Meet your building surveyor
We recommend you meet us at the property during the survey so that we understand exactly what you require from your survey report and so we can answer any questions you may have.
