BCR are Surveyors & Residential Property Market Specialists covering Kent, East Sussex and Surrey. Our Level 1, 2 (Home Buyer) & 3 (Building) Surveys include extensive annotated colour photographs to highlight points raised. Level 3 reports provide additional advice to provide clients with a clear ‘road map’ to address issues raised and to care for their property in the future.
BCR Residential Property Market Specialist, Jeremy Richardson, has been providing advice on property market values for around 40 years. Jeremy is a RICS Registered Valuer and we carry out our market appraisals using RICS protocols. We offer a bespoke service with specialist advice for buyers and sellers to include guidance on home improvements and extensions along with Home Mover Reviews. Our Development Site Appraisals offer expertise in the assessment, sale and acquisition of property with potential – with or without planning permission.
Our Accompanied Inspection is an opportunity to meet us on site for a convenient property ‘health check’ – ideal for pre-offer guidance or to follow up on points raised in a survey report or for sellers to obtain pre-marketing advice.
For pre-1919 buildings of traditional construction, in addition to surveys, we offer bespoke Building Conservation Reviews with specialist 360° camera inspections of roofs, chimneys, gutters and roof spaces.
Our very active Property Auction service covers the UK market for clients who value the speed, certainty, transparency and closure provided by an auction sale.

Client feedback from BCR clients:
‘Just coming back to you on this excellent survey. I have forwarded to my solicitor who is similarly impressed, and stated `”your surveyor has done a good bit of my job for me!”… …and thanks once again for an excellent report – really put my mind at ease, and you’re right – it does provide a road map on how to look after the property that will be relevant for a good few years.’
‘Just wanted to follow up to say thank you again! Having read through the report in more detail (more than once :)) this weekend it is very clear and incredibly thorough; as well as highlighting the issues you’ve taught us both a lot about the proper care of a home!’
‘We’ve been through the report thoroughly this week and don’t think we have any questions as you have explained everything so well!’
‘I just wanted to thank you for all your help and advice… all the photos in the report were very helpful.’
