Rafal from Websters helped to give me impartial advice with regards to a leasehold property. He is incredibly... knowledgable about all aspects of the property purchase process, including regulation, financial details and the estate agent side of things. Would definitely recommend and I will be using Websters again! 10/10read more

Richard Stacey provided excellent impartial advice for renovation and remodelling work on our home. Richard has saved... us significant building costs and has led to our living space being far more practical and future-proof than it would have been, had we continued with our original plans. His professionalism and knowledge is matched by his people skills and he instantly made us feel at ease. I would definitely recommend him, you wont be disappointed.read more

I contacted Webster’s surveyors regarding a property and from the first phone call to the last I found this company... efficient, polite and professional. They are very reasonably priced, they attended the property quickly and the report was also with me quickly. The report was thorough and very easy to understand, and has helped me greatly with the issues found, which will determine if I proceed or not, potentially saving me thousands of pounds.Cannot recommend enough.read more

our expertise



Expertise is far more than experience, albeit our Surveyors have lots of that with the three most senior sharing over 60 years between them. Our Surveyors are technicians, having chosen to specialise in parts of Surveying over their careers. 

For example, one has undertaken thousands of Home Surveys, another over a thousand lease extensions and another, over a thousand statutory valuations (CPO, Capital Gains tax and Inheritance tax). 

Hopefully this expertise, our technical understanding comes across both when talking with us and also when seeing how we value and negotiate. 

All of our qualified Surveyors have obtained the status as RICS Registered Valuers as well as becoming Chartered or AssocRICS members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.




lease extension and enfranchisement valuers


Extending your lease or buying your freehold can significantly increase the Market Value, provide you with additional control and protect the value of your asset from markedly falling due to it’s tenure type. 

If for example, if you have a lease which is approaching 80 years unexpired, the cost of extending it may be about to significantly increase. Valuation practice changes at 80 years (the magic number here) meaning that the cost of extending can significantly increase the moment the unexpired term hits 80 years. This is because a principle called Marriage Value then begins to apply. 

An extension can be for 90 years on a statutory lease extension or to another term if on a voluntary lease extension. For example, some voluntary lease extensions increase the lease term back to 99 or 125 years which can prove less costly than extending by 90 years. A Statutory lease extension will reduce the ground rent to a peppercorn (zero) but a voluntary lease extension can retain and even alter the amount of ground rent and how it alters over time. 

Where more than half of the leaseholders in a block decide to buy the freehold, they can do so under a process called Collective Enfranchisement. 

Leasehold owners of houses can buy their freeholds under the Leasehold Reform Act 1967.
