About Us

Wayne Norcliffe is 47 years old (as at 2013) and has worked in the construction and property industries since leaving school in 1982. Starting off as an apprentice bricklayer and latterly running his own sub-contracting company employing upwards of ten specialist construction operatives.
Wayne returned to study as a mature student, studying a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) accredited degree in Southampton, obtaining a 2i (HON's) degree and finishing 2nd in his year.
Wayne obtained his Chartered Status in 2000 and has since been working as a practising Chartered Surveyor for various companies, including Countrywide Surveyors, Tyser Greenwood Surveyors, Wolton Surveyors, JE Shepherd Surveyors, HSBC Bank, Bournemouth Borough Council, Southampton City Council, Poole Borough Council and National Car Parks Limited, along with working directly for the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors as both an Assessor and Home Inspection Trainer over the years.
Wayne decided that working for larger surveying practices was not for him, wanting to focus on client service and ensuring that the client receives the highest levels of service.
“We work hard to provide our clients with a personal service, being available to discuss our reports in detail should a client wish to do so" Wayne states.
Unlike other companies, who may choose to undertake 3 or more surveys per day, we generally do not and as such believe we are best placed to assist our clients by providing a more personal service than some others.

Leasehold extension and enfranchisement valuations

The process and benefits of extending long leases on flats and houses in England and Wales can be both expensive and complicated, along with needing to be undertaken in accordance with the relevant guidance and legal requirements.

Ensuring you have a Chartered Surveyor on-board early in the process can help save you time and money later, in particular should negotiations with the Landlord become protracted.

Below is some simple guidance to assist you when considering extending your leasehold interest in a property, mostly flats, albeit the process is can be similar for other types of residential property. Commercial property lease extensions are covered under different rules and are not considered in this short summary article which attempts to outline the main elements of the process.

This note is not intended as a ‘do-it-yourself' guide to valuing your own lease extension or lease enfranchisement as this is a complicated valuation which is not something a non-valuer should undertake. You should always seek proper professional advice at the earliest possible stage before entering into discussions with the Landlord (Freeholder) or otherwise starting the process of Lease extension!

We can help you so please feel free to call us for a NO OBLIGATION chat on 0800 246 1002 or email us at:

Help to Buy Valuations

Our Director is a Fellow of the RICS and registered valuer and has undertaken many such valuations.

We'd be pleased to discuss your requirements. Please contact us on 0800 246 1002 or by email to

Car Parking

Property and Parking are interlinked, indeed a parking space is quite simply an area of property that has been allocated (whether due to Planning requirements or personal choice) to that particular purpose and as such represents the opportunity cost of using for that purpose, i.e. you could choose to use the building/space for a different purpose, possibly even one that generates more revenue!

The valuation and property aspects of car parking are complex and it's a specialist area for sure, the secrets of which have remained for decades with those in the know, such as Surveyors working for large Car Parking companies such as National Car Parks Limited or others.

Wayne Norcliffe MRICS worked for National Car Parks Limited (NCP) for 4 years at a Senior management level, reporting directly to the Board of their owners Macquarie Bank and undertaking specialist car park valuations, rent reviews, lease renewals, dilapidation claims, service charge disputes, acquisition and disposal work, etc.... across the United Kingdom and often on ‘high value' car parks.


Car park valuations are a specialist field and at Castle Surveyors Ltd. we have years of experience of undertaking car park valuations for both private and public sector organisations.

Homebuyer Reports

We have many years experience of undertaking RICS homebuyer and building survey reports across the country, now focusing on the Hampshire and Dorset regions.

Our Director is a former bricklayer now a Fellow of the RICS and has worked in the property and/or construction industry since leaving school at age 15. We'd be pleased to discuss your requirements.

Wayne provided an excellent service. The whole experience was very professional, from the first point of contact, through to arrangements to carry out the survey, and the follow up telephone call afterwards to discuss the report.

Castle Surveyors Ltd

Everything about the service was exemplary. Competitors take note! Immediate phone call after requesting a quote on the RICS website. Clear and concise explanation of options including advice not to go for a costlier survey as we shouldn't need it. Sample RICS format reports which made it clear what we would be getting, they arranged access through the agent and report was received within 24 hrs of survey. Very clear report and several key points which potentially useful for further negotiations. Cannot fault at all.

Castle Surveyors Ltd

Re-addressed Homebuyer report I contacted the firm for a quote for a Homebuyer report on a property I was interested in buying. Wayne responded, well outside normal hours and told me he had valued the property within the last three months, He said it could e readdressed, with warnings about possible changed in mean time. Within 12 hours we had agreed terms, exchanged authorities and I had the report. It is rare to say that the service could not have been better nor more timely.

Castle Surveyors Limited

Survey of a house I am proposing to buy Mr Norcliffe contacted me within minutes of my initial enquiry and I received a very comprehensive report within 24 hours of the inspection. His help and advice have been invaluable and I would highly recommend his services.

Castle Surveyors Limited

Homebuyer's Survey What a brilliant Service! It is not often that you couldn't ask for more - but it is certainly the case here. Even before he was instructed, Mr Norcliffe gave us really good, honest advice. Unlike so many other Surveyors, (who also came in with far higher quotes) Mr Norcliffe advised us not to get the more expensive Building Survey, but to opt for a cheaper one as he thought it would fit our requirements - even though we were ready to instruct him to conduct the more expensive one for us. Mr Norcliffe clearly explained his rationale - and he was absolutely right - in the event, it more than met our needs and was less than half the price. How refreshing to encounter such customer-centred honesty! The completed survey report was sitting in my email inbox by the Monday evening, the inspection having been done on the Friday. The report was extremely thorough - far beyond what I had expected for the money and represented brilliant value. Mr Norcliffe was quick to respond to my emails, and has provided excellent help and advice on the phone following the Survey as part of the survey. I would highly recommend Castle Surveyors without reservation.

Castle Surveyors Limited

Homebuyers Report Having found Castle Surveyors on a web search, we now feel very fortunate to have chosen the company to complete our Homebuyers Report. On reflection of our experience from start to finish, we would summarise it as thorough, extremely timely and having been conducted to a very high standard. As well as a very comprehensive report, the chance to speak to an approachable and knowledgeable professional post survey (in a way that we as complete novices can understand) to discuss any areas we had concerns or needed clarification on was invaluable in helping us to decide how to proceed with our purchase. Will actively recommend to friends and family with confidence.

Castle Surveyors Limited

Homebuyer's Survey for first time buyer Wayne Norcliffe provided a swift and thorough service. The process was explained clearly, and communication was excellent throughout. The survey was thorough and he advised on specific areas of concern. I would definitely use his services again in the future, and would have no hesitation recommending him.
