What We do and How we can help
People buying a house or flat often look for a cheap surveyor when considering a HomeBuyer or Building Survey report. However, a cheap survey is not necessarily the best value. It is important to ensure that the surveyor you use is a Chartered Surveyor experienced in providing the exact service you require. Many firms advertising their services are not Chartered Surveyors but you can rest assured that all of our surveyors are. We are an independent, multi-discipline firm of Chartered Surveyors and we are all MRICS or FRICS, signifying the "Gold Standard" qualifications for residential surveyors. We always aim to offer our clients the best advice and the best value possible and we often turn out to be the cheapest as well so why not try our free initial advice service? You can't get better value than that!
Whatever your requirements, or for free initial advice, the surveying team at Capital Chartered Surveyors and Valuers are happy to help. Feel free to contact us
