Residential Property Services from Tim Wilyman Chartered Surveyors

As the Bard might have said, the course of true property ownership ne’er ran smooth, but our professional surveying service can certainly help ease any problems you might encounter!


Our professional services for homeowners, property investors, landlords and tenants include:


• Professional Expert Witness

Our surveyors can create independent, authoritative reports on any aspect of a property's construction, structure or condition, including presentation at Court if required. An essential service for homeowners, renovators or property developers, in dispute with their builders or contractors, or for solicitors engaged in legal processes.

• Buildings Insurance Reinstatement Asessments

Reinstatement cost is the total cost of demolition and rebuilding your home in the event of fire, for example. Our team offer assessments of homes, single dwellings, blocks of flats or your entire property portfolio, based on the latest rebuilding costs.


• Defect Reports

Specific defect reports for property owners concerned over major problems with their property, including subsidence, major cracks, damp, roof defects, etc.


• Party Wall Issues

When alterations are made which affect shared walls or fences, or buildings are erected near your boundary, Party Wall procedure needs to be followed to protect everyone’s interests. We can act solely for you or jointly for both you and your neighbour, and provide unbiased advice to ensure the best result for our client. We know and understand the UK Party Wall legislation, so you don't have to!


• Boundary Disputes

Our surveyors can act as an independent authority in property boundary disputes with neighbours, often preventing unnecessary conflict and upset if we are consulted early on.

Your council tax band could change if you improve your property and then sell it, or if a property has mixed use (commercial and domestic). We can help with an expert report in your council tax appeal of an incorrect council valuation / wrong property band, potentially saving you £££s on your council tax bill.


• Compulsory Purchase and Compensation

We can help with advice and expert assessments, negotiating on your behalf to ensure you receive your correct levels of compensation under the appropriate legislation. New roads or other developments close to your property may entitle you to compensation, and we can help with this too.
