Chartered Surveyors & Estate Agents
C G Spratt and Son first opened in Worthing in 1948 and we are the oldest firm of Chartered Surveyors and Estates Agents in the town.
The firm was founded by C G (Jack) Spratt FSVA who opened his first premises in Bath Place which was part of the old Worthing Town Hall. The business thrived as a residential estate agency and surveying firm, concentrating on local business and, when the old Town Hall was demolished to make way for what is now the Guildbourne Centre, the firm moved to its existing premises in Brighton Road. The existing Principal Christopher Spratt joined the firm in 1985 having gained extensive experience working in London, Surrey and Brighton and he has overseen the expansion of the company to its current size.
Our aim today, as it has always been, is to provide clients with an up to date and first class professional service on all aspects of their property requirements.
We have an in-depth knowledge of all property matters relating to commercial sales and lettings, surveys and valuations, residential lettings and management, leasehold block management and commercial property management. Our approachable and friendly staff are always ready to advise and discuss your requirements with you.
We have a proven track record and pride ourselves on being equipped to deal with all types of client, ranging from private individuals to public companies and Local Authorities. We have vast experience of dealing with all kinds of property from single buy-to-let investments to full mixed portfolios and block management.

I purchased a shop in Worthing through Spratt and Son. It was made an easy, straight forward transaction with the help of Phil Heckels. Honesty is not often associated with Estate Agency, but I would have no hesitation to buy or sell with Spratt and Son again as I know that I will receive straight talking, honest advice and instruction which is just what you want to reduce the stress of a property transaction.
I have used Spratt & Son for very many years and have always found their team to be very helpful, courteous and efficient and I would have no hesitation in continuing to instruct them.
We have used Spratts to let and manage our commercial properties for many years and are very happy with them. What is important to me is that we get the same comprehensive and personal service for a small lock-up shop as we do for a large factory/warehouse.
We used Spratt & Son to assist us with finding a new location for our Worthing branch. Not only did they help find us an excellent location but they ensured that the transaction moved along quickly to completion. I would not hesitate to recommend their services.
We have been with Spratt and Son for some years now and they continue to provide an outstanding service. They are always at the end of the 'phone and will go that extra distance to make sure things run smoothly for our business.
Spratt and Son are the managing agents for my newly acquired retail premises in Worthing.
I found dealing with the team an absolute pleasure. Phil Heckels and his team exceed customer service levels in all departments.I am pleased to continue my relationship with Spratt and Son in their capacity as managing agents safe in the knowledge that I will receive a professional service at all times.
Bowers & Wilkins have used C G Spratt and Son for professional advice on our property matters over many years, including when we moved to our new headquarter premises in Dale Road. Their advice which has encompassed both strategic and practical aspects has always been of great value to the Company.
The service has been fantastic and the improvements that I have seen in the running and the keep up of the block has been vast since Spratt and Son have taken over the management of our leasehold. The change in Managing Agents was a real worry for me and I was considering selling the property solely because of this change. Now should I decide to sell, Spratt and Son's managing of the leasehold would be a real selling point.
Commercial property and business development has become a more complex and dynamic type of business. Our success has always been our ability to find the right partners to help deliver our projects. The wide range of professional services that Spratt’s are able to deliver means we are able to deal with one company for acquisition, construction, marketing and rate reduction. From a construction company Spratt’s have proven to be one of our most valuable tools.
We have worked with Spratt’s for many years as agents for the landlord. More recently we asked Phil Heckels to find an alternative premises for our business. Our needs are quite complex but Phil understood the brief and made concerted efforts over many months to find premises that would meet our requirements, exactly. He then guided us through the process liaising with landlords, freeholders and solicitors until we secured the lease on terms that allowed us to refurbish to our requirements. He was patient, efficient and professional at all times and we are delighted with our new, town centre base.
