A little bit about Knowle

Knowle is a residential area just south of the Bristol city centre - it was mentioned in the Domesday Book as worth 2 geld units and there is evidence of Iron Age and Roman settlement here. Records show that in the 19th century, a number of allotments were tended here, on the site of Redcatch Park. In the 1930's a large housing estate called Knowle West was constructed along the lines of a garden city, to house the residents of cleared slum areas in central Bristol. This was added to in the 1960's, but is still considered to be an area of deprivation, drugs and crime. Knowle has a Grade II listed Water Tower - built in red brick in 1905, it dominates Talbot Road.

Our Services

Knowle Surveyors is a trading name of Right Surveyors (an RICS regulated firm of chartered building surveyors). It offers 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 Knowle 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 Knowle 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 Bristol 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.
