Very professional and thorough RICS surveyors. They dealt with two property surveys for us in a very helpful and timely manner. I would highly recommend them.

These people wasted our time in a way hard to describe.Firstly, it took more than a week for them to book us a viewing.Then, when we got to finally visit the property, when we got there the agents did not have the keys and there was no one at the property. The viewing was meant to be at 12:30 and we waited until 13:15 for them to get the keys and be able to see the property, as it looked to suit all our requirements, within them the most relevant being pet friendly (the pictures in the advertising even showed cat furniture in the flat).But then after submitting our offer we are told that the landlord does not accept pets...Unbelievable and unacceptable

I cannot rate Rohan’s service high enough. The positive reviews are why I selected Blake’s and I wasn’t disappointed. Roshan was accurate with his estimates, was incredibly helpful and responsive and thoroughly supported me through the process. Thank you very much to Roshan and team!

Roshan was very prompt in completing the necessary survey with a thorough and professional report produced afterwards. I also found Roshan to be very professional when I had numerous follow up questions, which he also dealt with promptly with comprehensive responses.

We have been so pleased with Blakes, they were recommended to us by our Solicitor and they managed to secure a new lease premium on our property in a professional and efficient manner. Roshan is swift to respond to all emails, giving great advice from the off. Would highly recommend.

I highly recommend Blakes surveyors. I got in touch with them to enquiry about a lease extension , and they were very helpful indeed. Not only they replied immediately to my query, but they also gave me a very accurate detail of how much I would expect to pay for their services and the estimated cost of the premium to be paid on the extension.I contracted their services, and within a few days they provided their services which includes a very comprehensive , professional survey report. I was so satisfied with their excellent service that I decided to contract their legal services , provided by their sister company , Arcadia Law ltd, to complete the legal formalities required to extend the lease on my property.

Testimonials

Blakes have carried out numerous valuations and lettings for our various residential and commercial properties. I have found the service swift, professional and very in tune with current market conditions to achieve best outcomes. They are helpful and the extra attention to detail ensures things progress smoothly. I would highly recommend talking to Blakes for any property related query.

Dr Krishnan Satkunam. MD, Krinvest Care Group.

If you want a next to no time sale sell through Blakes. They will stock pile keen interested and serious buyers after vetting them and show case your house on an agreed specific day and odds on you will have favourable offers as I did on my house which sold shortly afterwards. Good honest down to earth straight talking without any unnecessary frills with polite old fashioned service, that's Blakes.

Mark D Thomas. Anthony & Co Asset Management.

Blakes provided us with a formal valuation report for Probate purposes for a property in Surbiton. They also gave us investment advice for a residential refurbishment project we considered carrying out in Kingston upon Thames. The advice provided was extremely helpful and allowed us to make a reasoned and informed decision on taking the matter forward.

Tom Harrison, KT1.

I have worked with Blakes for the last four years and have no hesitation in recommending them to my clients in all aspects of enfranchisement related work. Roshan is responsive and a real expert in the field. He turns around his reports in a timely fashion and always manages to achieve effective and acceptable results for my clients. A real asset to the profession.

Katie Cohen, Partner, Child & Child, SW1X

We have been using Blakes Chartered Surveyors for our client’s valuations for some time now. We have always found them to be professional, helpful and approachable in all our dealings. In addition, the reports received are comprehensive and prompt even when we find ourselves having to give “last minute” instructions. To cap it all, Blakes are also very reasonable priced; we would always recommend Blakes.

Richard Turney, Partner, Rose & Rose Legal, KT1

As the freeholder of the building and after receiving a section 42 notice from one of the leaseholders, I instructed Blakes to prepare a lease extension valuation on my behalf and handle the negotiation of the appropriate premium to be paid. Roshan inspected the property promptly and provided me with a detailed and accurate valuation of the premium payable which was significantly higher than what was offered by the leaseholder. Following some extensive negotiations with the lessees surveyor, Roshan agreed an excellent settlement allowing the matter to be completed without referral to the Tribunal, acting in my best interests and ensuring my financial interests in the freehold were protected. I would highly recommend using Blakes Chartered Surveyors.

John King, Barrister, 9 Bedford Row, WC1R

Recently I needed to extend the lease on an investment property of mine in Surbiton, Roshan at Blakes managed the whole process for me, not only did this take the work out of it for me, once he completed the valuation he then successfully negotiated with the freeholder directly himself what I am confident would have been a much better price for the lease extension than I could have got to myself, they provide a very professional service and have since recommended Roshan & Blakes to our own clients and will continue to in the future.

Chris Poore BEng CeMAP, Director, Kingston Mortgage Services Ltd

May I also take this opportunity to thank you for your help and services in this matter. From our first phone conversation, where you clearly explained the process to me, to your obviously excellent skill in negotiation, you have made this a stress free experience for me with an excellent result. I would not hesitate in recommending you services to anyone.
