Providing Peace of Mind and Saving You Money 

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.

Why Barnes and Barnes as you London Surveyor?

We’re an independent family-owned chartered surveyor company acting in the best interests of London home buyers since 2005. Being a relatively small team of chartered surveyors, structural engineers, party wall surveyors,  – compared to some of our national counterparts – we can be flexible in the services we offer, and can respond to any specific concerns and requirements.

From helping you choose the right survey to the final report on your property, we are with you every step of the process.

Which property survey do I need. flowchart to help you decide

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

  • RICS Level 1 Condition Report
  • RICS Level 2 HomeBuyer Report
  • RICS Level 3 Building Survey

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.

Very professional, they were quick to arrange our survey and provided a helpful and detailed report.

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.

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.
