Our team of experienced surveyors offer RICS Level 2 and Level 3 Surveys. A valuation, costings for repair works, reinstatement costs (for insurance purposes) or a feasibility study in the report relating to your Dalston property if required.
Offers on properties are made subject to survey, and it’s considered reasonable for a buyer to renegotiate if an issue is highlighted that they could not have been expected to be aware of when the sale was agreed. Including costings in the report allows you to commence that renegotiation without the hassle of having to arrange builders’ estimates.
Valuations can only be prepared by a surveyor who is also an RICS Registered Valuer. The quality assurance programme ensures that valuations provided always meet the highest valuation standards and are widely recognised as such. Requesting a valuation is particularly important if a valuer will not be visiting the property on behalf of your lender.
Our team of surveyors have assisted numerous clients over the years with the purchase of their Dalston property both by providing valuation advice and pre-purchase surveys. Residents regularly come back to us when it’s time to refurbish or extend their property so that we can advise on neighbourly matters or just manage the whole project.
This is where we’ll be providing details of some of the Dalston based projects we’ve worked on recently, the challenges that we’ve faced and the feedback we’ve received from our clients so please check back over the next few weeks to read more.
In the meantime, we’d recommend that you check out the large collection of posts that have been added to our blog since 2009 including a few detailed case studies.

Dalston is centred around Kingsland Road (A10) in the London Borough of Hackney with Stoke Newington to the north and Haggerston to the south.
Dalston has been home to a number of cinemas over the years, being something of an entertainment hub, but only one now remains, the Rio Cinema on the High Street. Originally built in 1909, it was remodelled by Cult architect FE Bromige in 1937 to provide the Art Deco appearance which we see today. These days the cinema shows the Hollywood staples as well classic matinees and community screenings.
Another building in the area of architectural interest is the Grade II listed German Hospital. Originally built in 1847 to treat the areas large German-speaking community. It originally consisted of 3 red brick Victoria terraced houses but gradually expanded over the years before finally closing in 1987 and being converted to affordable housing.
