Knowledge is power
The home buying process is often ranked as one of the most stressful transitions in life.
Expert advice gives you confidence in your investment and we deliver expert knowledge with accuracy, care and diligence.

We work with customers who share our core values
Honesty is paramount in our culture
Improving communication and confidence with clients
De-risking investments resulting in confident decision making.
Our director Alistair White MRICS Registered Valuer, has overall responsibility for all residential and commercial valuation services. Robust auditing process, dual sign off on high value properties, ensuring the right person for each instruction is sought, is paramount to the accuracy of our independent valuations.
An asking price is just that, it doesn’t mean a property is worth it. You only get one chance to get it right, and that is before legal commitment to purchase.
A client instructed us to look at a Surrey mansion, which we valued at £10m under the asking price! That was the biggest single investment we have protected to date. Protect your investment, ensure the price is accurate.
Here to support you and your surveyor from start to finish, our customer care team ensure everything runs smoothly.
From arranging access into your new property, project managing diaries and routes, individually proof reading and quality checking every single report, our team is on hand to protect your investment, delivering great service with a smile.
Independent eyes and ears protecting your investment. In a world of automation and AI, many lenders no longer inspect a property.
Your solicitor won’t either.
It is vital you have a RICS fully trained surveyor look for any fundamental defects with your property. A valuation based on what they find, combined with local market knowledge gives you ultimate protection. You wouldn’t buy a second hand car without getting a mechanic to take a look!
Every property is unique, we are all unique. Our team are here to listen to you and support you through the property buying process.
Have you seen something in the property which causes you concern, or are you planning on undertaking work? We ensure the inspecting surveyor understands your position and helps you feel confident about your purchase.
A dedicated point of contact from start to finish, even post survey when your solicitor may highlight legal issues which you'd like the surveyor to consider. We are with you all the way through to completion of contracts.
