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
Probate
Capital gains (including non-UK residents)
Inheritance tax
Leasehold extension and enfranchisement
Shared ownership and staircasing
Reinstatement cost assessments

Party Walls

Party wall example London

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.

Giving You Peace of Mind About Your Property

 

We understand that this isn’t just about a survey or valuation. It’s not just about completing a report. This is about providing you with peace of mind that you’re making the right property decisions and in many cases securing a new home for you and your loved ones. We want to put your mind at rest and help you to understand the survey so that you can make the decisions you need to about your property.

That’s why with every survey we offer a call before the survey to establish any areas of concern and then a call following completion of the survey to go through our report and allow you to ask any questions you may have.

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.

Barnes and Partners carried out a probate valuation for me following the death of my wife. It all went well and was completed in around a week.

Barnes and Barnes were recommended to me, and I would definitely recommend them to others myself. I commissioned them to do a Home Buyer Report. The Report was thorough and very informative. The surveyor was also available for a follow-up phone call. I had the impression they really care about their job, which is very reassuring as a property buyer.

Mr Barnes was very helpful in identifying important defects in the house which we were planning to purchase, and as a result, we were able to avoid a bad bargain. His surveying report was also extremely detailed and well-written, and his advice very professional. We would definitely recommend his firm to others.

I commissioned a probate valuation survey from Barnes & Barnes of my late father’s flat in Islington for inheritance tax purposes. I do not live in Islington and needed an accurate valuation from professionals who are familiar with the area and know the local property market. Grant carried out a thorough survey and the valuation report was well-reasoned and easy to follow. I was and am very pleased with the service I received.

The survey was arranged speedily and efficiently and carried out on the day specified. The report was full and produced to a good standard although it took slightly longer than the time originally indicated. The post report discussions with the surveyor himself were very helpful.
