Sillence Hurn provided a detailed and insightful report, and were consistently available to contact regarding any queries we had. Their Planned Preventative Maintenance Survey gave us the long-term guidance we needed to help keep up to date with The Department for Education’s estate management requirements and any repairs or upgrade work that could be needed in the future.

Our pre-purchase building surveys are designed to deliver clear and concise reports, highlighting any existing defects, maintenance requirements, and potential costs associated with remedial work, so you know how what alterations (if any) need to be made to your building.

We understand the importance of providing you with a comprehensive breakdown of your building's condition. One of our dedicated Building Surveyors will provide you with a summary of findings over the phone on the same day, so no keeping you in the dark!

We offer a wide range of services to cater to your needs:

1. Drone Pilot Hire: Concerned about the condition of a large property or the long-term viability of the roof? Our drone pilot service ensures accurate and detailed inspections, reaching heights and corners like never before.

2. Remedial Cost Advice: Worried about the potential costs of defects? Our surveys identify risks and provide you with accurate cost estimates within the report.

3. Extension & Refurbishment Advice: For large home extensions, restorations, and refurbishments, we offer bespoke design and drawing services, project management, and contract administration.

4. Applications & Compliance: Let us handle the building regulations and planning approval process on your behalf. We’ll ensure that you as the property owner, and the building itself, are compliant with all necessary requirements.

5. Designs & Drawing: If you have ideas for building works but need guidance on structure, materials, utilities, compliance, and energy, our experienced Building Consultants are here to support you.

6. HMO (House in Multiple Occupation) Consultancy: As accredited HMO licensing surveyors, we specialise in scheduling portfolio-wide periodic inspections for HMO landlords and providing advice on necessary works before licensing deadlines.

7. Smart & Sustainable: Looking to enhance the eco-friendly features of your home or explore sustainable energy alternatives? Our experts can offer advice on integrating smart technologies and sustainable solutions.


Our agile and responsive approach ensures that we can expedite building surveys for our clients quickly and efficiently. Our team of RICS Chartered Surveyors are abreast of all the latest statutory regulations and provide an approachable and personable service to ensure that you understand the information presented to you.
