Having been fascinated by buildings and construction techniques from a young age, becoming a surveyor was always the obvious career choice for Jack. He has fond memories of watching ‘Homes Under the Hammer’ and ‘Grand Designs’ with his grandparents.

Jack loves the variety of work being a surveyor brings. No two properties or days are ever the same, and there is always something new to discover. Jack established Novello Chartered Surveyors in 2019 with fellow director James Brook MRICS.

Professional Qualifications

Jack gained a BSC Hons in Building Surveying at the University of Brighton and then went on to become an MRICS Chartered Surveyor and Registered Valuer.

His specialisms include -

  • Building surveys
  • Roof surveys
  • Valuations
  • Party walls
  • Leasehold reform

Career Highlights

Jack’s career highlight is simple - the day he became a Chartered Surveyor.

Hobbies and Interests

Jack enjoys keeping fit and can often be found at the gym or swimming, finding it helps to use up any pent-up energy from the day.

He also enjoys playing badminton, but unfortunately, Jack’s knees are not so keen! On holidays, Jack loves reading thrillers and historical fiction and enjoys a glass of good whisky.

Jack was a member of a medieval re-enactment company; he spent many happy hour jousting and shooting a longbow. However, wearing armour weighing 12 stones puts a strain on your body, and consequently, Jack felt he’d have a longer career in surveying.
