Ask a Surveyor is the brainchild of Robert Desbruslais, the owner of Desbruslais Chartered Surveyors. Robert qualified as a building surveyor and member of the RICS in 1986 and has over 25 years’ experience in the industry.

‘Throughout my career friends, family and acquaintances have often asked me about issues affecting their property. Clearly there is a huge amount of anxiety surrounding building defects in people’s homes. In fact, as soon as people find out I am a surveyor, they invariably have a question to ask me about their house! It struck me there must be thousands of people and organisations that would benefit from affordable yet unbiased professional advice from a Chartered Building Surveyor. The internet provides the perfect platform to give invaluable and inexpensive guidance that can save money, distress and unnecessary inconvenience’
