A little bit about Clifton

Bristol is a very historic city, but, surprisingly, Clifton has a much older history, with a lot of depth. In the 1080s, the Domesday Book illustrated Clifton as a small agricultural town with a population of around 30, and it stayed rather small for the following years. But during the 1640s, the Royalists were defending Bristol against the Roundheads and set fire to the surrounding countryside. The few houses that were in Clifton were all destroyed, apart from the St Andrew's Church, but this was then destroyed during the Second World War. Due to these unfortunate events, there are not many ancient buildings in Clifton, but there are some exquisite examples of Georgian and Victorian architecture throughout the town. Clifton is well-known for its iconic suspension bridge, the building project began in 1754 due to the death of the Bristol wine merchant, William Vick. It was not completed until 1864, and still stands today.

Our Services

Clifton Surveyors offer pre-purchase surveys and specialist building surveys for property buyers, sellers and owners.

We offer a wide range of property services and defect reports from qualified, experienced chartered surveyors who take pride in their work.

Common property defects:

Our surveyors are trained to investigate these (often hidden) defects.

Defect - Cracks

Cracks

Cracks are amongst the most common property defects, with buildings both old and new often subject to cracking in one form or another.

If you've discovered a crack in your Clifton property - be it hairline or something more substantial - our surveyors will be more than happy to advise you of its cause and whether or not any remedial works are required.

Defect - Damp

Damp

There are several types of damp that your building in Clifton may be prone to including rising damp, penetrating damp and interstitial damp.

Our surveyors are suitably qualified and experienced to diagnose any damp problems in your property that you may be worried about and will suggest methods that can be undertaken to rectify the issue.

Defect - Subsidence

Subsidence

A potentially serious defect, subsidence occurs when the ground beneath a property is unable to support it.

Perhaps you're unsure as to whether the cracks in your Clifton house are signs of subsidence or just signs of settlement - a process that normally occurs in new buildings. If so, contact our surveyors who will be happy to assist.

"In our experience it is very unusual to find a property without a single defect; instructing us to undertake a Full Building Survey, House Purchase Survey Report or HomeBuyers Report will help give you peace of mind, the potential to save on the purchase price and the ability to plan for the future."

Did you know?

In around 400 BC, a surveying tool called a Groma was invented. This tool consisted of a long, vertical staff, with a horizontal cross-piece mounted on it. A plumb line was attached to each end of the cross-piece. It is believed that the Groma originated in Mesopotamia (today's Iraq), imported by the Greeks in 300 BC, and hence taken to Rome.
