Technical Expertise with Emotional Intelligence

Welcome to Martin & Mortimer, independent Chartered Surveyors and Valuers.

Our specialisation is in residential property. However, we also provide
a range of survey and valuation advice for commercial premises.

Our Philosophy

Central to our philosophy is the importance of being independent. We have no ties with estate agents, solicitors, mortgage brokers or financial institutions: the advice we give is completely impartial.

 

Our Vision Statement

  • To provide the best possible independent advice about surveys and the options available to you.
  • To tell you if you need other related professionals rather than a surveyor.
  • To provide an accurate and independent assessment of the property, tailored to your needs.
  • To avoid 'defensive reporting', 'caveats' and unnecessary reliance on 'specialists'.
  • To avoid technical 'jargon' and ensure that you are able to speak with your surveyor directly.
  • To look at the property in as much detail as possible and to provide the best possible advice.
  • At all times to act in a professional manner and to follow the rules and regulations of the Royal Institution
    of Chartered Surveyors.

How can we help?

What our customers say...

Lucy: We have been delighted and hugely reassured by the caring, considerate, highly professional and efficient way we have been dealt with and the information that we have received about Party Wall matters.  Lucy has extremely generously given of her time and expertise to explain the situation in clear, concise detail, even though it means we might not actually need to call upon her services.  It has taken the lack of understanding, mystery and apprehension out of the issue. I cannot recommend Lucy Shalev highly enough.

I just wanted to say how impressed with I am at the speed of service/response. Having had a lot of delays with both lawyer and mortgage advisor, I had a feeling anything related to buying the house may be the same, but I have really appreciated how fast everything has been processed from your side. The service from start to finish has been the one thing that hasn’t been stressful in this whole process so I appreciate it.

The Team: We were recommended to you on a Sunday.  We were contacted the very next morning to get the ball rolling and having looked at your website, we knew you were the people for us.  Later that day, I spoke with Mark who was accommodating and listened.  We would like to thank you all for the service help and care.  It was like the old days when customers really mattered and know wonder you are successful.  We will highly recommend you whenever the situation arises and should we buy again, will rust to your door to do business.

Lucy: Throughout the process of securing a Party Wall Award, Lucy Shalev was friendly and approachable; answered all of our questions promptly, clearly, and accurately; and of her own initiative, provided unsolicited, but much-needed assistance – all of this during the extremely difficult circumstances engendered by Covid-19. We are very grateful.
