Welcome to

Smith Heritage Surveyors

We are a local, family run chartered surveying practice which means every enquiry, survey and client is an individual to us. When you work with us you will have direct contact with a local surveyor who will help guide you through the house buying process.

We undertake building surveys on a variety of houses, but as the name suggests our passion and expertise lays in period and listed properties. We offer the RICS home survey standard products namely the Level 3 Building Survey and Level 2 Homebuyer report, but we also give bespoke reports for our listed building surveys, defect reports and damp and timber surveys.

All of our building surveys and homebuyer reports include:

  • Over 100 pictures per report. This helps us convey defects to our clients as  'a picture paints a thousand words'.
  • Roof survey conducted via drone. Traditional surveys are carried out from the ground/on a ladder. Through the use of drones and pole cameras we are able to fully see every angle of your roof/chimneys/gutterings. *in some areas there are flight restrictions and we will use a 10m pole camera* 
  • Thermal imaging to seek hidden moisture issues, where indicated.
  • Thermo-hygrometer readings to assess moisture conditions throughout the property, sub-floor vents etc, again to help find hidden moisture issues.

We are passionate about providing a high level of service by ensuring our clients receive precise, simple to use information that is beneficial. We avoid the usual jargon and get straight to the point.

We can offer face to face appointments on-site to help you make decisions that are specific and useful to your needs. We are uniquely placed with surveyors in Wiltshire, Berkshire and London which means that we can easily serve the surrounding counties of Hampshire, Dorset, Somerset, Devon, Oxforshire Gloucestershire.

All our surveyors are trained to the highest standards with degrees in Building surveying, Historic Conservation and Project Management. We are industry accredited through the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), the Chartered Institute of Buiding (CIOB), the Residential Property Surveyors Association (RPSA) and we are members of the Society of Protection of Ancient Buildings, given our obvious passion and interest in historic buildings and Building Surveying. Joe, our newest recruit lives in Twickenham, South West London and Chris is based in Richmond Upon Thames. Steve, one of the founders is based in Woodcote which is nestled in the Chiltern Hills AONB between Oxford and Reading. We also have Dave Smith down in the West country in the medieval city of Salisbury, with the knowledge vault of the company Lawrence a bit further West on the Dorset boarder in a beautiful Vilage called Tisbury, just outside the Cranborne Chase AONB. Lastly we have Sarah who is always moving but currently resides just outside Basingstoke. Please get in touch and have a no-obligation discussion.
