Pre or post purchase inspections

We have been managing , building, painting and repairing property for 40+ years in the Algarve,
(since 1964!), and can offer a wealth of experience to enable you to spot potential problems with your property prior or post purchase.

This is a free service if the property is managed by us, and charged on a time and kilometers basis for property outside our management area, or managed by other companies. Our Principal, Alistair MacGregor, is not an engineer, architect or any other specialist body... just years of problem solving and building. Practical solutions for problems.


Pre or Post building Inspections

Not happy with the way your project or refurbishment was handled? Were you overcharged, have you been dumped halfway through a project?

We probably can't get your money back, but can guide you as to how to proceed from here on, and guide you through the process of selecting reliable and efficient tradesmen ( as efficient as they get in the Algarve!...).

Do you want some advice on how to start managing your own project?

We can help you get it back on track.

We will not comment on hidden structural faults, or engineering matters, but can advise on many aspects of practical rebuild, repair and long term maintenance, for trouble free villa operation.
