Meet our small, family run team of surveyors and backroom staff. We are based in Salisbury but have hub offices in London and Winchester.
Our skilled team advises homeowners, developers, tenants/occupiers, landlords, private investors, lenders, and heritage/listed building owners throughout the entire property life cycle.
We are independent practice, which means we are not linked to or owned by an estate agent or lending institute, and as a result we are only working with your best interests in mind.
