Providing Peace of Mind or Saving You Money and Inconvenience
We want to provide you with the information you need to make a decision about the property you are considering. Our surveys will give you peace of mind about a purchase or perhaps in some cases you may decide not to go ahead. Either way we want you to have all the facts and information you need to make that decision. Over the past 20 years, as London surveyors, we have surveyed 1000s of London properties. Being a chartered surveyor is an assurance of quality. We’re approved and monitored by RICS the professional body for chartered surveyors.
“Grant was incredible and saved me so much money through his thorough report. Couldn’t recommend more”. Customer, May 2023
PROTECTING YOUR INTERESTS
What Property Survey Should I Choose?
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.
I engaged Barnes and Barnes for a probate valuation for a property in Highbury. Grant was very thorough, extremely helpful on the day and very considerate. Highly recommend.
We were impressed by the professionalism and quality of our survey. Our Market Value report was comprehensive and delivered in a short time frame. We would definitely recommend.
You get what you pay for – the sampler Barnes report was very much more thorough than sampler reports from other practices, and for that reason, we chose Barnes over other, less expensive practices.
As a firm of architects, we rely on the highest standard of our consultants and I warmly recommend this approachable firm for their professional services.
Excellent, efficient. A detailed and very thorough report provided at a value-for-money cost. Would highly recommend.
