Surveying Practice raising money for local charity

One of our surveyors is entering the 2015 Cape Town Cycle Tour in an effort to raise money for a Plymouth based Prostate Cancer Charity called the Chestnut Appeal. The event takes place on 8th March and is the largest timed cycle race in the world.

Darren said “This charity does excellent work in achieving better patient outcomes, supporting people with prostate cancer and making the public aware of the need to talk about it.”

Darren is entering the event with two friends, one of whom has recently recovered from Protate Cancer, and Darren's family has also been touched by the cancer. 

If you would like to support Darren and donate to the Chestnut Appeal pleas visit

Attention Buy-to-Let Landlords

The Energy Act 2011 contains prospective legislation relating to energy efficiency in buildings which threatens to have a major impact on the property market. 

The Act provides that, from April 2018 at the latest, it will be unlawful to rent out residential or business premises which do not reach a minimum energy efficiency standard. Although the detailed regulations have not yet been issued, the Government has already indicated that the lowest acceptable energy rating is likely to be E. This means that landlords of F- and G-rated buildings will be unable to let them out after April 2018 unless they take active steps to improve the energy efficiency of those buildings.
