What Customers Say

"Saved us money that otherwise would have been spent on unnecessary woodworm treatment"

"We instructed Academy Remedial Surveyors to investigate a woodworm infestation that was flagged up in our homebuyer's survey. We chose ARS because they are truly independent - previous experience has shown to us that one simply cannot trust any surveying done by companies that also sell the remedial treatments!

Dealing with ARS has been a delight from start to finish, thanks to clear communications, proactivity and swift turnaround time. We were very impressed with the report: At last a survey written in clear language, with a true common-sense approach and hands-on advice how to deal with some remaining issues.

ARS have saved us money that otherwise would have been spent on unnecessary woodworm treatment. We will certainly use ARS for any future surveys and whole-heartedly recommend their services to anyone in need of highly professional surveyors they can 100% trust."

Independent Surveyors - we will only tell you of a problem if there REALLY is one

Academy Remedial Surveyors are not  contractors who carry out work meaning we have no financial interest in looking for work or problems that do not exist. Our mission and object is to inspect, diagnose and provide opinion of problems reported by others or, to inspect for pre-sale purposes to determine if any problems exist.

We are employed by both the private and commercial sector however the largest proportion of our work is for homebuyers after receiving the homebuyers survey report which normally recommends a damp and timber survey even only as a precaution. Existing homeowners also find our services invaluable. Architects, building surveyors, local authorities, banks, mortgage lenders, insurance companies and builders are all part of our commercial client portfolio.
