Claire Austin

Residential Building Surveyor

Claire has worked alongside, and has been mentored by, many knowledgeable and experienced surveyors, having had the pleasure of surveying wonderful properties in beautiful surroundings such as the New Forest National Park and Jurassic coast.

Claire undertook her training with Sava in 2019, gaining AssocRICS accreditation in July 2021. Since then, she has worked across Dorset and Hampshire undertaking residential surveys and valuations for private clients, along with valuation surveys for various mortgage lenders. Her clients have ranged from first time buyers to those who are experienced in buying and selling property.

Claire’s proudest project

“I undertook a survey of a block of six flats, some privately owned and some tenanted. The flats were suffering with high levels of mould, damp and water ingress, in turn having a huge impact on the residents. I carried out a detailed inspection of the interior and exterior of the building to highlight areas requiring attention by individual residents, but also the Freeholder.

“I also advised on lifestyle and efficiency and brought attention to previous works that had been poorly carried out on the block which were sub standard and contributing to the interior issues. It was fantastic to give the residents some answers along with advice on how to begin solving the issues that had made their lives so miserable for such a long time.”

Fun fact about Claire

Claire once came a close 2nd place in the Swiss alps against Olympic snowboarder Katy Ormerod – in a singing competition! She did beat Ed Leigh from BBC Ski Sunday though.
