Damp and Timber Surveys in Bedford and the surrounding villages


As a practicing Chartered Building Surveyor the founder of Phillips & Co recognised a basic flaw in the property purchase market.


Damp in one shape or form is probably the most common defect found within property.


Unfortunately, within the scope of a Mortgage Valuation, Homebuyers Report or Full Structural or Building Survey the surveyor may not have either the experience or expertise but more commonly the time or specialist equipment to undertake a thorough investigation into the causes of an apparent damp problem within a property.


As a consequence of this the report produced often makes the reader aware of high moisture levels having been recorded and recommends a further investigation by a "Damp Specialist"






Phillips & Co are not contractors or sales reps, we are an Independent firm of Chartered Surveyors and members of the Property Care Association.


We will undertake a thorough investigation of the property but we will charge a fee for this service.


We are happy to recommend trusted tradesmen to undertake any remedial works identified such as re-pointing brickwork, removing render, lowering external ground levels, improving ventilation, plumbing repairs etc and we also offer a project management service if required.
