Common questions

What disbursement’s do you charge?
All disbursements are included in my pricing.

Do you charge an hourly rate?
No. All my charges are fixed and agreed upfront.

Why do you charge to undertake the initial visit?
If you are seriously considering an extension and you want clear and impartial professional advice from a Chartered Building Surveyor, then paying for a home consultation will provide you with meaningful answers and a strategy to take your project forward. I only charge a nominal fee of £125.00 for an initial meeting, or £500 for a design meeting with sketch options. To book a consultation please contact me and I’d be happy to help you.

Why are you more expensive than others in the area?
I price my services to undertake the project diligently and to ensure the survey and design processes are not rushed. You will be investing a large sum of money into your extension and it is important that you invest in these early stages to ensure your project gets off to the best start and designed to achieve the final outcome you want. The number one cause of budget and programme over-runs is rushing through the design process.  A well thought out design will add value through the whole process and reduce you stress levels when you come to build your extension. An out of control project is expensive and a very stressful.

Why do you charge upfront?
I charge stage payments upfront like most companies when your purchase something. Charging in stages helps spread the cost for you and books you a slot within my studio.

Do you offer a guarantee?
Yes. Should the service I provide fail to meet your expectations within the first 30 days of appointment, I will gladly offer you a full refund without any questions asked.

“From Start to finish Jonathan Durndell was very professional in every aspect of his work . From the 1st appointment the communication was excellent and never had to chase him for anything which I think is invaluable when working to deadlines. The costs were exactly as he quoted which I found reasonable and he never rushed me at any of our appointments. I have used this company three times now and dealt with Jonathan on all occasions and found him very knowledgeable. He has come up with some great ideas which I have used numerous times.  The drawings they produced were very accurate and detailed in which my tradesman all commented on.”
