About Us - What we can do for you
There's strength in numbers and now house buyers, property owners, investors and commercial property seekers have greater assistance available in Costa del Sol and the whole of Spain. Campbell Ferguson, FRICS, working from Estepona since 2001 plus 3 years in Madrid, is at the heart of the Survey Spain Network, which links 12 RICS qualified chartered surveyors located all round Spain and the Canary and Balearic Islands. As experienced and ethical professionals they carry out valuations, building surveys and property searches solely for their clients, with no fudged conflicting loyalties.
Campbell has strength of nearly 40 years of experience throughout UK, Europe and Eastern USA in property valuation and inspection, contracts and financial details. The other members of the Network have similarly diverse experience, but all live, work and are 'immersed' in Spain and it's property. Together they form a comprehensive team, available to work for their clients' financial interests and, as important, peace of mind. With them as your support, you can be confident that your interests are being protected. Their combined years of previous experience with all levels and types of property, means that most situations have been encountered previously. They take the attitude of a buyer intending to occupy a property and so check the items that will affect the owner's proper enjoyment. Within their reports they also make comment upon any legal or other relevant documents with which they have been provided. This is especially useful as it's just not practical for the lawyers who prepare most legal documents to visit each property.
Survey Spain charge fees for their work in the same way as do lawyers or accountants. They are professionals whose work methods and attitude is governed by the UK Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. In addition, Professional Indemnity Insurance protects their clients' interests. The benefit of their work is that it's often possible to see that their knowledge and advice has saved the client many times its cost.
As Campbell says, "We have all come here to live the 'dream'. We enjoy what we do and we want others to enjoy life here too. If, by sharing our expertise, we can remove some of the hassle and provide reassurance, then that's a good day's work."
