Thank you very much for doing our inspection and for your written report. I now have the confidence to go ahead and purchase the townhouse. You did a wonderful job. Mrs M (Australia)
Many thanks for your prompt and very complete Survey Report, Mr G.
We have been dealing in properties for many years
and this is the first property that we have purchased unseen.
This decision was not made lightly but the thorough and informative building survey you carried out was a major contributor to this decision.
Your customer service and communication was excellent and sets a benchmark for your profession to aim for.
Once again many many thanks
Mr P. (New Zealand)
Thank you very much for this - very professional and impressive. Mr R.
After reading your Survey Report we both feel that we now have a much better
idea of the house and its merits and faults.
We will use your Survey Report as a guide for working on the house. We were dithering but we feel much more confident now.
So, thank you Gordon for your good work. Mr W.

Over 35 years experience in the Construction Industry.
The buying and selling process in France can be exciting, yet it can also bring with it considerable stress.
Buyers worry about the condition of a property, and the possibility of unseen problems, together with the likely cost and feasibility of making their ideas reality and creating their dream home.
Sellers aim to present their property in the best possible way in order to attract buyers but are frustrated when a potential buyer walks away because of uncertainty about the condition of some aspect of the property and the likely cost of repairs.
Gordon Barnes can help in both these situations as well as advising existing property owners of the cost and feasibility of their proposed extensions.
As a Member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (MRICS) and a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Building (FCIOB) Gordon is fully qualified and experienced to advise both buyers and sellers on the condition of a property and also the feasibility and cost of repairs and renovations.
