SPECIALIST PROPERTY SURVEYORS IN ALL ASPECTS OF DAMP AND TIMBER DEFECTS

We provide Independent specialist damp and timber surveys for home-buyers, home-sellers, home-owners, commercial and government organisations.

We are not contractors who carry out work meaning we have no vested interest in finding work that doesn't exist.

We make a charge for a survey because that is all we do - SURVEYING.

This means you get Independent diagnosis and advice on causation and remedy and as Independent Surveyors we will only tell you of a problem if there REALLY is one unlike others who have a vested financial interest by way of selling their services and products and achieving their sales targets.

Consult an Independent Qualified Surveyor, you could save hundreds or even thousands of pounds by getting the right and impartial advice.

We are not a Franchise, we do not we employ sub-contract Surveyors, we do not use call centres, all staff are directly employed.

We have been expert advisors to Which? Consumer Magazine and Channel 4 House of Horrors.

Outstanding customer service

Having been requested to obtain a damp and timber report by my mortgage lender, I was extremely fortunate to come across Academy Remedial Surveyors in my search on the internet. After my initial enquiry with the office, they had contacted the estate agents and myself to carry out the survey. I met Ray on site, to which his approach and professional knowledge left me with no doubt that I had been fortunate to instruct a very reliable and trustworthy person. The report by Ray was received promptly. I have been impressed with the service received and would have no hesitation in recommending Ray Baker to others.

Plenty of info within the report but if you have a little knowledge it was easy to see much of it wasn't particularly useful. Much of the information regarding remedial work in the survey report was merely copied and pasted from websites. Failed to notice or mention the most obvious area of damp in the property which stuck out like a sore thumb.

At least its good to read the report contained plenty of information but in contradiction to the continued comment sensibly any information must be very helpful indeed to allow our clients an informed understanding of problems and defects which in turn provides reasoning as to how and why our advice is offered to resolve them. We do not use copied and paste material from other websites, we do use researched information from acknowledged institutions such as the Building Research Establishment etc which is a primary consideration to resolve any problems and defects at source. In regard to the failure to note damp that stuck out like a sore thumb if I were the client I would be complaining and demanding an explanation, we have a rigorous complaints procedure in case of human error, we have not received any complaints over the last year that have required investigation, I wonder therefore if this posting is genuine or commercially malicious based upon our previous 38-5 star reviews.

Great, Independent Advice!

This is the second time we've commissioned a survey from ARS and, in between the two, I have recommended their services to a number of people. Ray's reports are very thorough and clear and, having undertaken his advice once before, I know that it works!

Ray baker is great

I am extremely pleased with the surveyor Ray Baker. His very thorough survey was a bit beyond my knowledge in areas, I called him up and he was more than happy to explain carefully what it all meant, and went above and beyond in helping me later look at some quotes I had been given and giving his advise to help me. When your a first time buyer you have so much new jargon to learn and it's really heart warming when someone takes the time not to patronise you but carefully explain, and tell you if you are in anyway confused he is happy to help.
It is also good to have the knowledge of what you need to have done, knowing that who ever does the job you have has an impartial survey and know what you need and most likely saving money in the long run from unnessary extras which some company's like to push. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Couldn't ask for better

Excellent all round. Survey was done within days of request, Surveyor, Ray, attended as arranged and Report was provided the next day.
Report was well written and easy to understand. Where minor works were recommended approximate prices were given which is useful when getting quotes.
Overall I am very impressed with this service and would definitely use again should the necessity arise.
