About Us

Earl Kendrick is an award-winning project and building consultancy working hand-in-hand with clients in the residential and commercial sectors. We operate from our offices based in London, Manchester, Brighton, Bristol, Birmingham and the Cotswolds.

Our talented team of surveyors work closely with freeholders, leaseholder groups, managing agents and other industry suppliers such as architects, engineers and solicitors, to provide a comprehensive building surveying service.

We are recognised as leaders in our field. We provide training opportunities through respected property management bodies such as The Property Institute. Our surveyors enjoy delivering CPD training face to face and via webinars.

EK Reinstatement Cost Assessments is dedicated to RCAs, nationwide, offering this essential service to property owners and managing agents, ensuring residential and commercial buildings are correctly valued for insurance rebuild purposes. ‘Lean and accurate’ is the company’s strapline, helping property owners to get their declared value just right.

Through EK Licence to Alter, we work on behalf of several freehold portfolios as the retained landlord’s surveyor in advising and overseeing leaseholder alterations and commercial/retail tenant requests. We draft bespoke licence to alter processes and procedures for our clients – often property by property – which are particularly useful to managing agents. Working with the landlord’s chosen solicitor, we have developed bespoke procedures and reporting tools to ensure that all leaseholder alterations projects are dealt with accurately and efficiently.

Having worked in the residential sector for the last 12 years with our teams possessing decades more relevant experience, we have accumulated a great deal of knowledge as to what makes for a successful client-surveyor relationship. Our willingness to attend client meetings (including evening residents’ meetings) means we always have direct contact with the key stakeholders – typically board directors and the service charge payers. Crucial to the residential sector, we understand the intricacies of the ‘section 20’ processes for major works, and the content and timescales associated with the notice of intention, statement of estimates and (sometimes necessary) the notice of reasons.

Equally, we know our way around a lease and we regularly advise clients and managing agents when we believe legal advice is necessary or prudent where there is grey area over demise or lease obligations. We appreciate the importance of proactive funding to ensure projects start on time and are completed without extra calls for cash.

Earl Kendrick employs a core senior team of directors and associate directors. Directors have a stake in the business encouraging loyalty and a long-term outlook. These individuals were hand-picked, ensuring they possess the necessary technical skills, as well as the personal skills required when dealing with leaseholders’ homes and tenants’ properties.

Earl Kendrick understands your assets, will help you maintain them and wherever possible, will help enhance their value. You will enjoy total confidence in a detailed understanding of the state/condition of your buildings and the requirements for their continued maintenance and improvement. We will demonstrate experience and familiarity with your properties, offer practical and professional advice and all stages, and manage project works closely.
Our core services include: Contract administration, principal designer, capital expenditure planning and PMP, licence to alter, reinstatement cost assessments, party wall matters, rights to light, cladding consultancy, insurance reinstatement works, retrofit and green upgrades consultancy, interior design, rope access surveys and safety testing, pre-purchase building surveys, and historic building repairs and maintenance.

Earl Kendrick will provide an invaluable yet independent extension to your own team – a long-term surveying partner.
