From the project management of new build bungalows, the conversion of a pub into flats, phased major rebuild of a block of flats whilst the residents remained in occupation, to a maintenance review of the De La Warr Pavillion in Bexhill, our previous projects have covered every aspect of surveying and building in our business. The main photo above shows the iconic property, The “Rusty House” in Lewes, featured in an episode of the Channel Four programme, Grand Designs. We carried out a pre-acquisition survey for the potential new owners.
In 2014, Housemartins was employed by Seaford Town Council to act as Employers Agent for the demolition and rebuild of the new Seaford Head Golf Club. This involved weekly site meetings with the contractor during the construction period to monitor progress and quality of work and then to report directly to the Council with any problems. The project was completed within 11 months within budget. See photos below.

Thank you for the very thorough way you have conducted my homebuyers survey and for the helpful notes accompanying the report. This has brought about a satisfactory purchase arrangement, agreeable to both parties.

A note to say many thanks to you for your excellent service and report.
I have written personally to Mr Gray to thank him for the speed and thoroughness of his report, and have been singing your firm’s praises ever since.
Thank you for being so reliable and helpful with my matters that you have been dealing with. Please also thank Melissa too, for her attention to detail and kind assistance.
We were very pleased to read John’s report. Please would you kindly pass on our thanks to him for all his help and the very informative and useful report. Many thanks to Housemartins for the firm’s kind attention.
Thank you for doing such a thorough job and taking the time out to discuss your findings with me.
Many thanks and appreciate all your efforts and time with this matter. I would have no issues with recommending both Lee and Housemartins to friends, work colleagues and family who may ever require a survey.
Paying you that £500 was the best £500 I have spent in a very very long time. I would not have recommended you and your company if I had thought any different. You are worth every single penny. Your level of professionalism was outstanding and has helped me with my freeholder struggles tremendously.
