Welcome to Phillips & Co

Chartered Surveyors!


Your genuinely independent and local Chartered Surveyor offering impartial advice on residential property in Bedford and the surrounding areas.


Not owned by or affiliated to any Estate Agents, Insurance Companies or Mortgage Lenders, so when inspecting a property, the survey is for one person only, you!


Being independent means Phillips & Co have no onerous targets of how many properties have

to be surveyed each day.


Time is taken to ensure your potential purchase is

given the time it needs to be properly inspected. 


This also allows the written report to be produced quicker.


Our fees may not be the lowest but the service offered is quite unique in that we are members of not only the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) but also the Independent Surveyors and Valuers Association (ISVA) and the Property Care Association (PCA).


Phillips and Co are fully insured, regulated by the RICS and a member of the Property Ombudsman.


We are also  RICS Registered Valuers.



All surveys are carried out in person by Neil Phillips, a fully qualified Member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (MRICS).


Neil has over thirty years of local knowledge of properties and the housing market in the Bedford area.


We carry an extensive array of equipment when onsite including sophisticated damp and humidity testing tools along with digital, thermal and elevated cameras enabling us to investigate areas often otherwise inaccessible.


We also provide drone roof top surveys in accordance with CAA regulations.


We believe we are the only local surveyors to carry this equipment as standard. 


We are proud to say we do not 

“specialise in recommending specialists!”


We produce clearly written and easy to understand reports offering impartial and accurate advice allowing you to make an objective and informed decision on your

proposed purchase.




We are able to assist in the
following matters:
