I contacted Structural Surveys Ltd when the survey report for a property we are remortgaging required referral to a structural engineer. Their service was prompt and reasonably priced. I would recommend them and would use them again. Excellent service.

Just a few words about the recent survey on my home and the way it was conducted. Firstly, I was impressed by the quickness of the reply to my enquiry, and the very prompt appointment. The survey itself was conducted most professionally. I was included in what was happening, and told very clearly of the outcome, which was useful and has helped me to form a plan of action for making changes to my home. The structural engineer put me at ease immediately and was reassuring throughout. I had an email copy of the Structural Report by the evening, followed by a full postal copy, a day later. I felt that the service was excellent from start to finish. Thank you.

The local searches on our prospective property purchase left us feeling very uneasy with references to "potential" subsidence issues. Structural Surveys Ltd offered a very comprehensive service at a very reasonable price and were quick, not only in fitting us in but getting the report to us. We've really had our minds set at ease by the very thorough report we've received and we would highly recommend their service. Thank you to all at Structural Surveys Ltd.

Excellent service. Timely appointment made. Came exactly on time. Very thorough. Gave verbal report and followed with written report within 24 hours of survey. Extremely professional.

I am very pleased with the service I have received from both the Office Manager and the Engineer.

We have recently required a structural survey to be done on a Grade II listed building and we chose Structural Surveys based on the great customer satisfaction reviews. Our survey was carried out by Jon who provided a very informative report, we raised a few queries on the back of the report to which Jon was very helpful in answering them. The staff in the office were super helpful and very friendly whilst doing so. I would definitely recommend this company and will be using them for any further surveys that are required.

Just a few comments on the structural survey undertaken recently by your company. I was very impressed overall by all aspects of the service. The company was efficient, acted in a timely way, and communications were clear and helpful. The survey was extensive and very detailed, and offered suggested remedies. The Surveyor, Ray Panther, was friendly, approachable, professional, more than helpful, and most importantly, very thorough. My builder was very impressed with the survey, saying it was probably the best he'd ever seen, and, as a retired Site Manager with a major house building company, this was praise indeed. Thanks again for your assistance.
Bill Balmer - October 2019
Absolutely fantastic service. Appointment was booked to go out to view my property the following day. After paying for the report, the report was then emailed to me the following day after. This has now assisted greatly with my property purchase. Highly recommended.
Chris Birch - December 2018
Thank you so much. I really appreciated the speedy service and the attention to detail.
Katy Perkins - February 2017
I have recently had a full structural survey carried out by this company. Whilst I was not in attendance, the detail and speed of the report was what I needed. Highly recommended.
