We are an experienced and friendly team of Chartered Surveyors
We are approachable, independent, local surveyors. We use our knowledge to protect property purchasers, owners and managers against unforeseen risks and uninformed decisions.
Sussex Surveyors LLP is a partnership formed by three independent Chartered Surveyors with offices in Brighton, Haywards Heath, Eastbourne and Chichester. We’re independent of any other surveying company, financial institution or estate agency so you can be assured of impartial, prompt and professional advice from all of our friendly, qualified staff.
We have strict quality control procedures in place for all of our work so you’re guaranteed the best possible service at all times. All of our surveyors are up-to-date with the Continuing Professional Development requirements of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and we also run a full RICS complaints procedure with the Property Ombudsman should this be required.
We act for many corporate and private clients. Expansion of the firm is always considered including the appointment of additional qualified surveying staff to augment the existing team – our reputation within the industry and with our clients is such that our referral network is our strongest form of new business. Always a good sign!
