By using our site to carry out a search or to request any further information you are accepting this Privacy Policy in full.

Local Building Surveyors is owned by AZAB Ltd. AZAB Ltd is registered as a data controller with the Information Commissioner, registered number Z2852758.

We take our responsibilities for safeguarding your personal data seriously. This privacy policy sets out how we process and store your personal data. If you have any questions about this policy, please contact us at

Consent

By carrying out a search on our website you are giving your consent for us to process and store the personal information you provide.

Your consent for our processing of your data, and the transmission of your personal data to appropriate service providers, is based on the principle of Legitimate Interest: you are providing your personal information with the intention of our processing it to provide estimates for services from the service providers on our site. You can choose to withold your personal information by using 'dummy' data for your search. If you do this, the service we provide will be reduced - our system will return results for you to view on-screen, but they will not be sent to you.

Use of Data

The information you provide while using our search facility will only be used to show the services and provide the quotes you request, unless you specifically opt-in to receive additional quotations and offers from us. If you do opt-in, you can opt out again at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link on the bottom of any subsequent promotional email you might receive from us.

The information you provide is stored on our servers and will be passed to the service providers that are shown in the results in order that they may contact you in relation to your requirement. We will not sell or otherwise pass your data on to any third party apart from these named service providers.

Those service providers are not permitted under data protection legislation, and our terms, to use your data for any purpose other than responding to your search.

We use an independent service (reviews.co.uk) which allows you to submit reviews of our service, and your email address is used to send you an invitation to participate in the review process.

Why do we ask for...

Your contact details - this is so that your estimates can be emailed to you, and the service providers can contact you by email or phone to discuss your exact requirements.

If you choose to withhold all or part of your contact information (by entering dummy contact information) you will still be able to use our service and view your search results on screen. However if you enter a dummy email address, these will not be emailed to you. If you do not wish to be contacted by telephone, simply enter 'no calls' or a dummy number such as 0000000.

The postcode and address of the property - this is so that the service providers can provide a more accurate quotation and answer any questions you may have based on the specific property and its location.

Access, rectification and erasure of any personal information held by us

You have a statutory right to be informed about the personal data that is held by us about you. To:

  • obtain a copy of the personal information we hold about you,
  • request changes to correct your personal information,
  • request erasure (deletion) of your personal data,

please write to us at the address on our website or email us at . For reasons of data security we can only accept e-mail requests for details or changes of personal information where the request is sent from an email address matching one contained in our database.

Before we release any personal information you may be required to verify your identity.

If you request changes or erasure of your personal data, your request will also be passed to the relevant service providers, however their compliance is their responsibility and cannot be guaranteed.

I found it very useful in finding a charterd surveyor in a town not known to me. In addition I was able to compare the companies listed together with their fees. On contacting my chosen firm they were well organised and quickly arranged a date for the survey.

Very quick response from the organisation and i chose Moores Prime Surveyers. This Company is an excellent company offering an excellent service and operates with great integrity. I have no hesitation in recommending them to other house buyers looking for building surveys

Needed a reinstatement valuation for building insurance purposes. Didn’t know where to start and wasn’t even sure what product I was looking for but this site was a great start and I got exactly what I needed from it. Vendors were quick to provide quotes and I had my survey completed and the report provided within a few days.

Excellent response. Thanks to all your messages but unfortunately the estate agent gave my house to someone else after saying offer excepted and go ahead with survey. Hopefully soon another property will be needing a surveyor. Thanks to you all.

I thoroughly recommend Local Building Surveyors. I contacted two of the suggested companies and received quotes within the hour, and then had an excellent service from Danny at TBH Chartered Surveyors who completed a HomeBuyer Report within the week.

We used this service to find a local surveyor in the area we are moving to. It was easy to use and quickly resulted in quotes and other supporting information from a number of qualified surveyors. We chose one based on the responses to our initial emails and have been very pleased with them.
