What do our
Mark and Sandie from Gloucester UK
We cannot commend Pedro Moreira, Algarve Surveys enough for the amount of time and advice given by him in the purchase of our new home in Moncarapacho. As a first-time purchaser in the Algarve, he gave us the necessary information and advice before the purchase. We would certainly recommend his services as very good value for money and peace of mind.
I just wanted to say what an absolutely excellent report, this was so much more than I had expected, you are very clever indeed to have produced this so thoroughly.
The points you raised on the planning are the biggest issues as I had thought the Estate Agent would not have taken this on without everything being in place legally.
Many thanks for the great report, this is of good value to us, thank you!

We started our project with Algarve Surveyors a few months before Covid locked everything down. Pedro and his team have been fantastic with reports and images and managed everything for us. Zoom meetings and on-site face-time calls have been so good that we have felt like we were there and keeping ahead of decisions. We can't wait to come back and see progress, which is all on schedule. We couldn't be happier.
Great response, thorough management of the project. All schedules and legal obligations met throughout.

A very detailed report telling us what we needed to know. It appears the developer has glossed over issues, no doubt hoping he could sell it before the problems became apparent.
It is a shame, really, because the house seemed to give us what we wanted (apart from the parking)
Thank you for the report. We are quite surprised by the general state of the property and really appreciate your detailed and professional report.
It’s very difficult to truly understand the condition of a property from a distance and your inspection is an invaluable step in the process.
We will be rescinding our offer as we aren’t in a position to purchase a property that requires major renovations and the cooperation of the immediate neighbours to resolve some fundamental problems. Our search for a property in Tavira has only started. We will reach out to you for your surveyor services once we find another property.
Thank you for your survey. I was grateful it was easy to read and understand. As a result, I have decided not to go ahead and buy the property. There were too many issues for me to take on and I could spend a lot of money, but still, basically, end up with a poorly constructed property.
Learning that the drainage was not connected to the mains, as I had been told, but to a septic tank shared with other villas was a major issue, and also the question mark over the boundary,
these were two issues I would not be in control of and would be an added stress.
I’m so relieved you carried out this survey.
