Welcome to Langtons
Langtons is a highly regarded, experienced firm of chartered surveyors which was formed in 1989 by the members of the Survey and Valuation department of the renowned Oxford firm of E J Brooks & Son (Established 1840).
All surveyors are Fellows of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, each having experience of between 30 and 35 years.
The firm provides excellent advice based on an in-depth and wide knowledge of property, supported by detailed office records dating back to the 1930s, and information obtained from its numerous contacts.
The historic information retained enables us to undertake accurate retrospective valuations for Capital Gains Tax, restrictive covenants and litigation matters.
The principal surveyors in the firm are Adrian Jones FRICS and Nigel Morgan MSc FRICS who both undertake building surveys, home buyer surveys and valuations. In addition, each surveyor specialises in aspects of surveying which few other firms undertake.
Adrian Jones specialises in litigation valuations, flat lease extensions and the modification and extinguishment of freehold restrictive covenants. Adrian has appeared as an expert witness in the Lands Tribunal, County Court and High Court.
Initially in the case of restrictive covenants and other matters involving litigation or potential litigation, the normal practice is to peruse the legal documents free of charge. Following this, if the decision is to proceed, the fees are discussed and agreed.
Nigel Morgan was awarded a Masters Degree in Historic Conservation from Oxford Brookes University in 2006. He specialises in providing professional advice on Listed Buildings and Conservation practice. This includes detailed surveys, negotiating with Conservation Officers, planned maintenance, repairs, alterations and extensions.
The number of buildings and sites protected by legislation is increasing as a result of statute and improved listing procedure, reflecting deepening public concern for the protection of historic fabric. Consequently, the importance of informed advice supported by appropriate qualifications cannot be overstated.
