Coronavirus (COVID-19): change to service

On advice from the government regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), surveyors are working from home. However, you must still notify us for an inspection. Please ensure you leave a phone number so we can call you to confirm whether we are able to visit. At this time we may accept photo evidence instead of a site visit.
