Area of expertise:

Property survey reports come somewhat of a second nature to Gareth who undertook countless condition survey inspections of various property types within the Utility Sector in the 18 months after leaving university, and has developed his experience whilst at Lea Hough. He also has experience in defect diagnosis and report writing as well as being adept at project management.

Whilst at Lea Hough, he undertook his APC post-graduate training route, via the firm’s Structured Training Programme and he became a Chartered Building Surveyor with the RICS in 2018.


When not in work:

Gareth enjoys spending time with his young child and his friends and family. When not socialising, time is spent renovating his newly purchased home and playing music from his ever growing vinyl collection. Gareth tries to give something back to the community by regularly giving blood.

"I have read your report again and I appreciate the level of detail and the effort you have gone to in surveying the property - thank you. You’re looking at properties every day and you know what you’re looking for – so you’ve seen things that I would never have spotted. You have opened my eyes on numerous defects on this property and am seriously thinking about leaving the idea of buying. The report was money wells spent!"
