French Property Surveyors Ltd (known to buyers of French properties as FPS) offers building surveying, valuation, and renovation support services throughout France. FPS has been delivering these services since 2006.
All FPS surveyors and other experts are based in France and registered with professional organisations such as RICS France (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors), CEIF (Chambre des Experts Immobiliers de France) or any of the competent bodies of architects. Members of these organisations must follow a strict code of conduct which means that all FPS surveyors and experts are completely independent and objective.
FPS carries out pre-purchase building surveys and valuations of private French properties and of commercial premises.
Together with you and before you start the conversion, renovation or restoration of a property, a surveyor can assess if the work is technically and financially viable. He will advise you and check the quality of the work during the course of the project. This support is provided by locally based, English speaking experts.
Surveyors can provide independent and objective expert reports on defective building works.
All reports are written in English (or French, if required) and accepted by banks, insurance companies and the relevant courts.
To safeguard its independence, FPS has no commercial links with any estate agent, financial institution, or building firm in France.
