What is a Drone?
A drone is a remotely controlled aerial vehicle that can be fitted with a camera. Drone surveys are ideal for building and roof inspections making it easier to see those hard to reach locations. Every roof inspection conducted by our survey drones offers HD video and high quality photographs.
Why use a Drone?
- Safer – First of all there is no need to send someone to work at height when you can send a drone.
- Cheaper – A drone is a fraction of the cost of hiring a cherry picker or erecting traditional scaffolding.
- Faster – Most of our jobs are completed in under an hour.
Approved Drone Surveys
Safety is central to our flying activities, therefore the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has reviewed and approved our flight safety management systems. Prior to awarding us with formal permission to perform aerial work.
There are a number of formal procedures that we perform before taking off, designed to make sure every flight is safe and that any potential hazards are identified and controlled. Procedures include pre-site surveys, task specific risk assessments and equipment checks.
There are legal standards relating to the operation of remote piloted air systems, therefore the permissions we have been granted by the CAA dictate what we can and cannot do.
Due to these permissions, your job requests are discussed first with you to ensure we can definitely go ahead. This is because safety is our highest priority.
How much does it cost?
It costs £400 + VAT for an hour on site, with any additional hours charged at £125 + VAT per hour.

Don’t just take our word for it, here’s what our clients are saying...
I have worked with Emma at Housemartins for over 11 years on and off, and in that time Emma has been a pleasure to work with. She has a rare blend of expertise, proactivity, transparency and value which makes her an exceptional partner for our development.
Emma’s knowledge is unparalleled, consistently demonstrating a deep understanding of the property management regulations and is always keen to offer a high value service. We have followed Emma to Housemartins from our incumbent agent because Emma is so proactive and genuinely cares about her portfolio and clients.
Whereas previous agents were always slow to reply and provide solutions, Emma is on top of everything and is a real doer – yet she still makes time to check in with our board with updates and guidance. There is full transparency, financials are easy to understand and the team are always keen to provide a real value for money service, saving us money on third party suppliers, building great trust and developing a very positive working relationship.
If you are considering Housemartins and the team then I would highly recommend their services, under Emma’s stewardship. They manage our development is if it was their own and this sets them apart from any other agent I have worked with.
We made real headway with our dispute within a couple of days of Housemartins becoming involved.
Bill, East Sussex Flat Owner
Many thanks for your help and advice which I have found very helpful. I look forward in due course to working with you again.
Ms R, Bexhill
Thank you for your support, for all the work you have done, you were great!
Daphne, Company Director
Housemartins helped find the best solution and gave us honest and invaluable advice.
Just a short note to thank you for all the support during the last 2+ years, especially in the early days. Being the professional company that you are you stuck with it. Your response to requests with answers expected ‘yesterday’ was all taken in your stride. I wish you all the best.
Once again we can’t thank enough for your beyond the call efforts.
Paul and Marilyn
Paying you that £500 was the best £500 I have spent in a very very long time. I would not have recommended you and your company if I had thought any different. You are worth every single penny. Your level of professionalism was outstanding and has helped me with my freeholder struggles tremendously.
I have been resident here for over three years and a director for one. Housemartins have proved particularly resourceful and sure-footed in their responses to contingencies such as the need for an emergency lift repair last year. The quote called for a lengthy ‘Section 20’ consultation but, some residents being disabled, the work could not be delayed. Finding myself the only responsible person on site, I was grateful for Housemartins’ hourly advice and close assistance to obtain the approval of all other leaseholders, and thereby to arrange an early repair.
This reminded me of their decisive response to my lesser contingency, when I had just moved in. My satellite television provider arrived to find a gap in the installation. Their solution required the temporary disconnection of aerial distribution to all flats, one by one. Housemartins gave permission for the work to proceed immediately, and undertook to absorb any queries from residents who would have received no warning of interrupted service.
I am writing this as an individual, but can add that my fellow directors had no hesitation in recommending the re-appointment of Housemartins Property Management for the current year. This was unanimously agreed by leaseholders present at our recent AGM.
