Welcome to the website of Ed Chamberlain – Independent Chartered Surveyors.

Specialising in residential property within the South Devon area, we offer a bespoke service in pre-purchase building surveys and RICS home buyer reports.

In 1997 Ed Chamberlain BSc (Hons) MRICS qualified as a Chartered Surveyor and has lived and worked in South Devon for over 21 years.   He began to specialise in the residential sector in 1998 having previously worked primarily as a Chartered Quantity Surveyor (or Building Cost Consultant) gaining valuable experience in both new build and alteration work.

Whilst he has designed numerous home extensions and new builds, he now focuses on condition survey work.  His wide ranging experience enables him to offer informal practical design advice that may be useful as part of the decision making process for a property purchase.

Much of Ed’s work is generated by recommendations from local firms of solicitors who like Ed’s reports for their clarity and detail.
