Independent Chartered Surveyors & Property Valuers in London
Realise Your Property Dreams. Protect Your Property Interests
Valuations provide an accurate idea of the market value of a property. As RICS registered valuation surveyors, we regularly provide valuations for:
Investors, home buyers and property owners
Capital gains (including non-UK residents)
Leasehold extension and enfranchisement
Shared ownership and staircasing
Reinstatement cost assessments
Our surveyors can act on behalf of the Building Owner or the Adjacent Owner, assess the nature of the Party Wall and its position in relation to both individual properties, and can provide impartial advice for either party in consideration of planned structural changes or repairs needed.
We can advise on Party Wall issues, including conducting Party Wall Surveys and assisting in Party Wall Awards or Party Wall Notices.
Reduce your risk with a comprehensive survey
Surveys are important because they reduce your risk and protect your interests. By inspecting a property and looking at the site, structure and services you will have sufficient knowledge of any damage, defects or potential dangers that make affect the decisions you will make.

Choosing the right survey
Our team is often asked which survey is the right one for you. There are three levels of the RICS home surveys: the Condition Report (level 1), the HomeBuyer Report (level 2), and the Building Survey (level 3). The best property survey will depend on the property and take into account the age and condition of the property, as well as what you have planned for it.
Report of the surveys was clear and thorough. The report was delivered on time as well.
Thorough, efficient, and extremely helpful. I would highly recommend Barnes and Barnes, the process was effortless.
If you have any doubts get a professional eye involved. Important issues were highlighted which could have been quite costly. Very detailed report containing pictures. Great service.
Grant highlighted that there are serious issues with a property that we were not aware of, we did not proceed. We learnt later on that had we proceeded with the transaction, it would have a huge financial impact on us.
Great service and quality, very informed response. With reporting. Prompt at carrying out the survey. Good response times when calling or emailing.
Grant Barnes did an excellent job on our level three building survey. He was on time, very thorough, and provided excellent follow up. Would highly recommend.
Very happy with the overall quality and value of our Homebuyers Report from Barnes and Barnes, with a timely follow-up call with our surveyor also much appreciated. Friendly approach from all staff, and our surveyor answered our questions in detail with helpful explanations of technical terms where needed in the call. Would highly recommend.
Really thrilled with the service from Barnes and Barnes, I had a full structural survey and they were super prompt, thorough and helpful with a follow up call.
Extremely thorough, very responsive and super helpful. We are in the process of buying a victorian house and Grant’s level 3 survey is a must to get a comprehensive view of what we’re getting into. Well worth it.
Very efficient and helpful over the phone. I strongly recommend as they take the time to talk you through the process, especially if you are a new home buyer like myself. Thank you for all your help!!
