Our Company

company meeting

Oak House Surveyors Ltd was founded by Alan O'Donoghue in 1996. Alan, a retired Northern Bank Manager and Estate Agent, used his wealth of managerial and business experience to form Oak House Surveyors Ltd. George Knipe MRICS was enrolled as Oak House Surveyors primary Chartered Surveyor and Fiona came on board as Company Secretary. In 2005 the firm enrolled Brian Turley MRICS to their team. With George and Brian's 30+ years experience between them in surveying and property management and Fiona's 7 years experience in Administration, Alan had a strong team to help him build Oak House Surveyors Ltd to the well respected and established firm it is today. We pride ourselves in giving a fast, efficient, attention to detail service at competitive rates.

Having been Director of Oak House Surveyors Ltd since 1996, Alan decided to retire and handed the reins to our newly appointed Director, Brian Turley MRICS. George also decided to retire a short time after having spent 40 years in surveying and property management and Oak House Surveyors wishes them both a long and happy retirement. Fiona remains Company Secretary and together with Brian, Oak House Surveyors Ltd will continue to provide an extremely high standard of service to all our customers.
