Building Surveyor Richmond Upon Thames

We enjoy carrying out surveys in Richmond Upon Thames. We carry out both residential structural surveys, also known as building surveys, and commercial surveys in Richmond Upon Thames. We think Richmond is a lovely riverside town with some pretty cobbled lanes and alleyways is home to Richmond Green, a beautiful green space surrounded by mature trees and stunning period houses.

Richmond Park, is the largest Royal Park in London and covers almost 2500 acres. The park is home to free roaming deer and two shire horses called Billy and Massey and also many different types of birds. From King Henrys Mound, a viewing area in the park you can see spectacular views of St Pauls Cathedral 10 miles away. The park also has an ornamental woodland garden, golf courses, playgrounds and the lovely Pembroke Lodge, once the home of the former Prime Minister Lord John Russell which is now a restaurant and café with stunning views. The park is a beautiful spot to take a break when we are surveying properties in the area.

Caveat Emptor, why have a Building Survey?

Caveat Emptor means Buyer Beware and whilst the buyer should be aware that they have liability it can help to make a unique selling point if your house has its own independent structural survey carried out.

A building survey, prepared by a building surveyor could literally save you thousands of pounds. The survey only needs to uncover one potential problem with the property and the cost of the building survey is more than recovered.

Information on Richmond Upon Thames and where to get a building survey

The River Thames is a main feature of London and runs from the south-west to the east. The Thames used to be wider and less deep with marshlands around it but it has been considerably embanked over the years and much now flows underground. London is susceptible to flooding and the Thames Barrier was built to alleviate the problem, but more work is expected over the coming years to prevent floods.

Richmond is a great place to shop with a choice of high street stores, designer shops, boutiques and antique shops.

Richmond has a good selection of restaurants, wine bars and cafes, many by the river.

The beautiful Richmond Theatre, designed by the architect Frank Matcham was built in 1899 and offers drama, musicals, opera, dance and more. Charlie Chaplin, Stan Laurel and Michael Redgrave are just a few famous names that have appeared on its stage.

Chislehurst Road and Chester Avenue are just two of the places here we have had the pleasure of working on residential building surveys.
