Structural Surveys were very accommodating with booking an urgent survey needed and were extremely quick in providing the report. Excellent service and would highly recommend. The report was very detailed. Price was very competitive too! Thank you.
Kellie Woodward - October 2019
A friendly and very professional service. I found the quick turnaround and price to be better than anything else out there. Appointment and survey results in the same week. The survey was very detailed and easy to follow. The phone is always answered, unlike others I had rang. Very pleased.

We needed a full structural survey for a property we are about to purchase! Andrew and Samantha were great couldn’t of asked for better! Amazing communication and speedy completion! Thank you!
Lucy Davis - February 2018
Highly recommended. We had a Homebuyers' Report which threw up some issues. Structural Surveys were extremely swift and we got the report the same day, which saved us a lot of days of worry. Thank you.

Jane dealt with our initial enquiry, contacting us after we input our details to an online price comparison website. She was very knowledgeable about products that are supplied as well as knowing the surveyors by first name and able to an instant background on them. The survey itself was carried out to a very in-depth and high standard, much higher than previous surveys that we have had for over twice the cost. The survey was presented very nicely in PDF 18 hours after it was completed, this did not incur an extra charge and is standard for the company. Not a recommendation but I forgot to pay my bill before the survey was carried out, complete oversight on my behalf as everything is explained perfectly. The reminder that I got was one of the most polite and possibly the most polite that I have ever received and follow up once payment was complete was again first class. I would not hesitate to hire this company again, swift, professional and polite, what more could you want? Having to have a building survey was a very stressful time & I still can’t believe that this company made it a pleasure.
Scott Evans - October 2019
Excellent friendly service. My report arrived immediately the following morning after the engineer visited my property. The engineer was extremely efficient and polite. I would definitely recommend this company.
Jillian Coates - March 2019
Highly recommended, fantastic service, got my survey and the report on the same day.
Mahmoud Abbas - January 2017
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.
