Chartered Surveyors

Desbruslais Chartered Surveyors, the listed and period property experts.

We are experts in pre-purchase surveys of premium, high value and complex property throughout London and the Home Counties with specific emphasis on listed buildings, period property and country estates.

Our surveyors combine their knowledge of building pathology, architectural history and conservation in their advice on these magnificent buildings. Our inspections are in depth and our reports are comprehensive yet concise, clear and informative. Our reports are pragmatic and we avoid unnecessary caveats and alarm, so our clients can proceed with their negotiations fully informed by experienced professionals.

We produce Archaeological Interpretative Surveys on historic buildings, usually pre-1800. These assess the origin and development of a building through time, often prepared for interested property owners keen to know more about the fascinating history of their home, or as part of an application for listed building consent to alter or extend.

We are also entrusted to undertake surveys on contemporary buildings, often with complex methods of modern construction and services installations, some of which have been featured on the Channel Four television show Grand Designs.

First time buyers will benefit from the knowledge and experience our surveyors offer as they are guided through the process of buying their new home.

Very thorough and immediate reassurance

We commissioned a full structural survey as we were in the process of purchasing a period property. The verbal feedback given on the day was very thorough and gave some immediate reassurance. The written report was thorough, detailed and included photographs which was very helpful when getting quotes for work. The survey gave sensible advice about which works were urgent / advisable / not urgent. We found the quality of work very high and exceeded our expectations.

Very professional company

I have had surveys done in the past, but not as in-depth as Desbruslais Surveyors' had produced. They are a very professional company, that went one step further in creating for us a top-quality survey to help us with our decision making. We will definitely be passing on your details to others and if we need it, will be in touch for further surveys in the future.

Careful and genuinely interested in helping

I very much appreciated the excellent client service at Desbruslais. Richard could not have been more helpful. It was a real pleasure to have my survey undertaken by someone who was careful and genuinely interested in helping me to think about my proposed purchase. Many thanks.

Comprehensive Survey

Desbruslais Surveyors carried out a full building survey on a vacant property we are purchasing. Carl as well as providing a comprehensive survey which identified some items we would never have found ourselves, answered all our follow-up questions in a friendly and informative manner. We would recommend them.

Over and above

Carl carried out a survey on my flat a few years ago which was excellent. Recently I have had a problem with a leak in the ceiling and he has gone over and above to help. He always gets back to you and explains things in layman's terms so that you can understand. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Very, very helpful

Debruslais Chartered Surveyors did a full building survey for our new property. It is a 150-year-old house and the level of detail in the report was extensive and very, very helpful. We were very pleased with Robert's professionalism and the time he took to explain the issues to us onsite. Thank you.

Very easy to understand and comprehend

Thank you very much for the survey report and especially for the way it was set out and the language used - my wife and I found it very easy to understand and comprehend - unlike many documents prepared by professionals which often resort to jargon and impenetrable wording.

I would absolutely use Desbruslais again

Highly recommended. I had a homebuyer’s survey carried out by Carl and was very impressed. Carl called me to go through the points as he knew time was a factor. When I received the report, it was a no-nonsense, straight forward but very thorough report. I would absolutely use Desbruslais again.

Highly recommended!

Exceptionally professional, competent, personal service. I have never received a better structured, more clearly written survey, thoroughly addressing every specific question I had asked. Mr Desbrulais also took the time to thoroughly go over technicalities on the phone and explained them in a way which any non-professional can easily understand. Highly recommended!
