Helpful Surveyors

Helpful. Expert. Understanding. Accommodating. The way we've been doing business since 1985.

Courteous, professional and helpful building surveyors.

That’s us.

Fully RICS accredited, we’ve been surveying in central London since 1985.

During that time, we’ve surveyed every kind of residential property.

Big houses. Small houses. Edwardians. Victorians. Georgians. Between the wars. Post war.

Detached. Semis. And more terraces than we can count.

Flats, too. Mansion flats. House conversions. The lot.

There are very few types of quality (or less entrancing, come to that) London property we haven’t nosed around, spotted this with, investigated that on… and then written up an individually composed, thorough, detailed and helpful report about.

Where we work

We work in Kensington, Chelsea, Westminster and other premium areas of central London. But if you're buying in the suburbs, we'll be just as pleased to help you.

There’s hardly a street in Central London in which our local property surveyors haven’t mounted scaffold, crawled into lofts, delved in basements, peered at end walls or carried out some other surveying task.

And if your property is in Kensington and Chelsea, Westminster or another high value, tree-lined area of London, there’s a reasonable chance we may even have set foot in it before.

If you’re buying or doing work on any residential property in town or in the London suburbs, our local property surveyors would be pleased to look at it for you.



A most comprehensive report, I liked your suggested comments.

Why us

There are many local property surveyors for you to choose from in central London. So what are some of the reasons to choose Helpfulsurveyors?

We’re certainly not the lowest cost surveyors in London.

Yet clients continually refer us to friends and colleagues, and return to us themselves time after time.


Because when so many services are pared down and automated in order to make them easier to deliver and ever-more competitive on price, we continue to do the critical job of surveying with meticulous care and attention to detail.

A property purchase is not a trivial matter.

Poor surveying can mislead a buyer or jeopardise their interests, resulting in huge costs or substantial loss of value.
