Working with private purchasers, Marten and Carnaby Ltd is able to provide the full suite of RICS Home Surveys and Valuation services for all purposes, including probate, equity loans, shared ownership/housing associations, tax, insurance and lease extensions. Marten and Carnaby Ltd are proud to be members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and are regulated by RICS Guidelines and protocol.

Marten & Carnaby Ltd are partnered with block management specialist ‘B-hive’ to provide specialist leasehold and freehold estate management services to Residents’ Management Companies (RMC’s) and freeholders covering South London and North Surrey areas. We believe the future of Block Management lies in partnerships, with B-hive as the trusted partner behind the scenes taking care of all things compliance, and Marten & Carnaby Ltd, based on the doorstep, to actively manage the day-to-day activity. We can provide a full management package or a consultation service, where you can be as involved as much or as little as you want, and we understand the need for total transparency in how your funds are managed. Our bespoke management package offers you a single point of contact and we provide a client portal so all things property related can be accessed whenever is convenient.
Thank you very much for completing the survey of The Garth in Epsom. The report is very detailed and provides an excellent assessment of the condition of the property.

We commissioned a Homebuyers Survey and Valuation. David was extremely professional – speedy response, arrived on time, friendly, courteous, and thorough – and his report was very clear and comprehensive (with photographs), clarifying all the potential issues we were concerned about regarding the property. A pleasure to do business with. I would not hesitate to use Marten & Carnaby ‘s services again.

I found the service to be of an exceptionally high standard. The report was thorough and gave me the confidence to proceed with the purchase. I truly appreciated the time you took to walk me through the report and discuss finer details with me. In all, you helped to make the stressful process of buying a property a little bit more manageable. Very highly recommended.

We approached Marten & Carnaby Ltd with a request for a Building Survey on a property we intended to purchase in the local area. The engagement process was clear and succinct, they provided us with a clear understanding of what types of services they could offer us and the limitations of each type of survey. Once we had described the property and what we needed to know they assisted us in deciding what type of survey would be appropriate and which we should commission, guiding us through the detail of the process. Once agreed, the survey was undertaken within a week and the information was provided to us a couple of weeks later. The report we received was thorough and detailed and the recommendations understood. They were happy to discuss and advise further with us all the points we raised from the report that we needed further clarification on. All in all we were impressed with their professionalism, promptness and assistance during the process.

Following a recommendation from our son who used your inspection survey in 2015. We write to thank you for the Building Survey that you undertook prior to a property purchase in Morden, where completion takes place this month. Your advice on the type of survey appropriate and costs, the subsequent thorough inspection and your prompt response to our queries was critical in making the decision to purchase the property. Please also convey our thanks to Christine in your office who was personable and quick to respond to phone calls.
