Thank you for the excellent service. Your report gave me peace of mind, after being messed around by potential buyers.

I was delighted with the service I received from Structural Surveys Ltd. After completing an online form on a comparison site, I was emailed the next morning with a survey quote. An appointment was then arranged for the same week. Two days later the in-depth report was emailed to me. An all-round simple and straight forward experience, a big thank you to the team and especially Jane Miller who answered all my questions and arranged the process for me.

Survey was arranged promptly and very efficiently directly with the estate agent. The report was compiled and sent electronically the same day as the visit. It addressed all the potential areas of concern I had with the structure in a succinct and easy to digest format. I had a couple of additional questions afterwards which the engineer was happy to answer. A targeted survey on the structure which was much more cost effective than a homebuyers report. Excellent communication.

I had concerns over a gable end wall on a property I was interested in buying. I was able to get a survey appointment just a few working days after enquiring. The structural engineer gave a great verbal explanation of the findings and answered my questions so I understood what work was needed. Really quick report...received the same day as the survey. Couldn't ask for more than that! Very reassuring that the house wasn't a complete lemon and was fixable without massive expense. This allowed us to go ahead with an offer on the property. Great service.Thanks!

Great level of communication from Andrew. Quick response to any emails that I sent. Arranged appointment within a week and got the report next day, excellent service. Good value for money, we arranged to meet up at the property, Andrew went through all the areas of concern and estimated costs to put them right. Could not ask for more. Next day received detailed report which was easy to understand and had all that I needed to renegotiate with the sellers.

We needed a structural assessment of a house that we're buying to supplement the initial survey. Booked quickly and report emailed within 24 hours with clear explanations of what needed doing. Very happy and would definitely recommend.
