Example Surveys

We were sent an example survey when we made the initial enquiry, which gave us a good idea of what would be included.

One of the reasons for us booking a GEM Surveyor was the fact that we were advised if any problems were found with the property we would not be referred onto specialists at extra costs to us. We were assured that the surveyor would advise us of any problems found and what we would need to do to put the problem right.  

The surveyor would even advise us of approximate costs on work required, which was just what we wanted.

We met the surveyor at the property, which was great as we could talk about the property issues and how best to address them. We received the survey report in two days, which explained all solutions and costs of work and we had sketch schemes too for extension ideas we discussed.

Mr M Fenn


Meeting the Surveyor at the property was so helpful

I was able to meet the surveyor at the property, which was great as he was able to show me there and then the problems which he had found.

For example:

The layout of the property was quite strange, many cracks and dampness and access to the loft was unusual, which limited the surveyors view.

The surveyor also spotted property problems I was not aware of such as a wall that did not have adequate support.

I was really pleased I made the decision to have the survey as this helped with my decision with not to go ahead with the property.

Will definitely recommend GEM Surveyors and will call back to book another survey when I find another property. Thank you.

Green Spaces in Ampthill

Ampthill has a delightful Park, which was the site of Ampthill Castle.  During the time of the Castle Henry VIII stayed and Katherine of Aragon resided during her separation from Henry VIII.  Ampthill Park at that time was a palace/manor house rather than what is known today as a traditional castle with Katherine’s Cross marking the site on the ridge.  The castle was ruinous by 1600.

Ampthill House, as we see it today, was built for the Ossoary family by architect Robert Grumbold from 1687-1689 and later remodeled by Sir William Chambers in the late 1700s.

Ampthill Park was once wood pasture but was landscaped by Capability Brown with trees planted strategically in clumps to create unique scenes from the ridge.

At the turn of the 20th century in 1902 Ampthill Park was the location for a special event attended by local inhabitants of Ampthill and the surrounding villages of Clophill, Silsoe and Flitwick.  The Maharajah of Koihapur picnicked in Ampthill Park with the Bedfordshire Regiment band entertaining and locals taking part in sports.

Ampthill Park covers 70 hectares and is managed by Ampthill Town Council.  The Park is Grade II listed and home to a diverse collection of flora and fauna.  Whether you are walking along the Greensand Ridge Walk, watching cricket being played during the summer or picnicking whilst children play in the play area Ampthill Park is a wonderful place to relax.
