Buying a home can be an uncertain and stressful experience. Therefore it is important to be able to trust the people you have chosen to help you and to trust them, you have to feel comfortable. This is why the first and most important thing I tell anyone is who I am and why I do what I do.
A helping hand when you need it
Although most Surveyors will tell you they do a technical job and work with buildings, in reality while technical skill and knowledge is important it is people who are our clients and who we are here to help.
It is helping people that brought me back to Residential Surveying. The Surveyor’s role is to help you understand the property you are buying and to remove some of that uncertainty and stress.
Professional, jargon-free service
My Home Buyer Surveys are more than just the paper or electronic report you receive.
You are also able to contact me to talk about any prior concerns you may have, as well as being actively encouraged to ask questions afterwards.
My promise is to not confuse you with jargon, or to hide behind recommendations for more specialist reports than are needed. Instead I will give you as much information as you need to help move forward with your purchase with confidence.
Alongside my day-to-day work, I also sit on the Residential Property Surveyors Association Council, the representative body for independent specialist residential surveyors. The RPSA works to both promote residential surveys and ensure those surveys meet the best possible standards.
I am also responsible for the Residential Building Defect content on isurv.com, the main online resourse for RICS surveyors.
