Gemma King

"We found the survey to be very thorough and it went into great detail. It was provided to us extremely quickly and we were able to talk to the surveyor which we found very useful.  The whole process of booking and communication with Tamlyns was also first class. We would thoroughly recommend them"


"When we needed a valuation for our home we first went to the biggest local estate agents in our area, after that disappointment we read some reviews and picked Tamlyns. The team were responsive and helpful, they understood our needs and provided an appointment in just a couple of weeks. The assessor arrived exactly on time and performed the valuation quickly - they explained the timeline and left us feeling confident about the outcome. We were very pleased and if we have need of RICS agents in the future we will be calling Tamylns team first."

Rebecca Winters

"Could you please pass on my regards and thanks to John for his thorough survey of our cottage. It was a pleasure to meet him as he is an absolute gentleman."

Danny Cox

"I have to say it was the best homebuyers report I have ever seen. "

Wendy Bishop

"I would just like to say how impressed I was with the survey, both in terms of the content and the presentation. The photographs were clear and pertinent, and it was a pleasure to read coherent and accurate text, something which is becoming increasingly rare."

Our surveys for Purchasers

Obtaining an independent professional survey before exchanging contracts on a home means you can be certain that you’re paying the right money for your property and entering into a transaction with your eyes open.

Where relying on personal judgment or a standard Building Society valuation could leave you vulnerable to costly mistakes or oversights, a more detailed or specific Survey will provide in-depth advice regarding the condition of the property, detailing future repairs that may be required and allowing you to factor these into your final decision.

Tamlyns provides a variety of competitively priced reports helping you to make sure the investment you’re making is the right one. Similar services we can provide include Specific Building Defect reports, Schedules of Condition and Schedules of Dilapidations. For more details on which survey is best for you, and how Tamlyns can help, contact our team.

Our surveys for Property Owners / Occupants

Our surveys are not only suitable for potential purchasers, but to those who already occupy or own property, including Landlords and Tenants. Property maintenance is ongoing and therefore property inspection should be too. You may also wish to commission a survey prior to marketing your property in order to avoid potential delays further along in the sale procedure.
