Welcome to Heritage House Consulting

Chartered Surveyors, Historic Building Consultants and the country's leading experts in Historic Timber Frames


Everyone - we are obviously very concerned at the current virus issues in our country. The survey teams are facing significant risk to themselves and owners / buyers in going out, and we don't want to give owners or occupiers any cause for concern. Until further notice we will not be undertaking surveys unless buildings are unoccupied. We do hope you will understand. We are very happy to help you over the phone, or do facetime links to properties, video surveys and so on. I do hope you understand! Thanks, Pete and the team.

Update 25 March:
The Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Goverment (MHCLG) have this morning (24 March 2020) announced new guidance for estate agents with immediate effect, as follows: 
  • MHCLG take the view that estate agents are not “essential businesses” under the new rules and therefore the guidance is that estate agents should close their offices immediately. 
  • Furthermore, MHCLG state that there should be no more viewings, routine inspections or house moves until further notice


We are passionate about old houses. We survey them. We help you understand them.

 'Historic' - means old houses, Listed or not, Manor house, Castle or Victorian townhouse.

Everyone on our team has restored old houses.  We KNOW how they are built, and how to maintain them. We find unauthorised works, and assess any related heritage issues.

 We have offices in Shropshire, Herefordshire, Lancashire, Oxfordshire and Hertfordshire, as well as our South Eastern office in Sussex. 

We are experienced and qualified in Surveys of Listed Buildings, Pre-Purchase Surveys, Full Building Surveys, Timber Framed buildings, and Timber and Damp problems.  We prepare Heritage Statements, Listed Building Consent applications, Repair and refurbishment specifications, and can manage your Project. We also handle expert witness and legal work on negligence and liability claims.  

Watch our 'Heritage House TV' channel for our informative, sometimes funny and slightly zany approach to building problems and solutions.
