Local chartered surveyors and property experts

Established in the 1980s by Roger Fairclough as general practice surveyors, Fairclough and Company are a trusted local firm of independent chartered surveyors in the Redhill / Reigate area.

The company specialises in many areas of building surveying under the guidance of Paul Dyer. We offer a number of varied services as expert building surveyors, ranging from home surveys to contract administrators for both large and small projects. We are familiar with local building materials, and regularly carry out surveys of traditional and historic buildings in the surrounding counties.
