I was really worried after discovering some cracks in the internal brickwork of the house that I had purchased at auction, and immediately thought that the property would need underpinning. Structural Surveys Limited came out and put my mind at ease, as they confirmed that the cracks were due to historic movement and poor construction. The report that I received after the visit was very detailed and clear. Excellent service and highly recommended.

Fantastic company, very good communication and thorough survey with minimal clarification needed. Survey came back within 24hrs too. Jane and Fraser were a pleasure to deal with and very helpful. Thank you. Would highly recommend.

I contacted Structural Surveys about some subsidence and was immediately able to make a date for a site survey, the survey was carried out with friendly efficiency, and I had the report, which was exactly what I needed, within 24 hours. I am very happy with the service.

Tim Elton - April 2017
I required the professional help of a surveyor and chose Structural Surveys from internet research & reading the associated testimonials. Paul visited us, assessed the issues & provided instant clear advice & options followed by a succinct report & line drawings. Throughout this process Paul & other Structural Surveys personnel were professional, friendly & helpful. As a constructive comment I didn’t initially understand the invoice & would recommend the inclusion of more detail in future. I recommend the company & would use Structural Surveys again if I require such professional assistance.

I am looking to purchase a house and I contacted Structural Surveys Ltd after a Homebuyers report highlighted structural movement in the property and generally painted a very negative picture of the property. This was alarming and stressful and our mortgage provider insisted we have a Structural Survey before they could offer us a mortgage. I got in touch with Structural Surveys Ltd and spoke to Jane, who was very friendly and efficient. The survey was booked in within 3 working days and we were issued a very detailed report less than 24 hours after the survey was conducted. I am so impressed with the level of customer service and also the level of detail that has gone into the survey with such a fast turnaround. It was very easy to understand and came with a number of photographs that helped to explain each detail. I am happy with the result of the survey and I hope that our mortgage provider will have no issues regarding this property now. Thank you so much.

Ray was lovely and very thorough. He explained issues well. He has put my mind at ease regarding costs involved. Thank you for all your assistance and for how quick you carried out the survey and prepared the report. Will definitely use your services again.

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.

I was referred to Structural Surveys Ltd through another surveyor. The service I received was excellent. In the middle of a house sale, with a complicated situation, I was able to get some great advice, which put my mind at rest at a stressful time. One thing I was particularly impressed by was how quickly the report arrived. I expected within 24 hours, which was already a great service, but I got it even earlier. Thank you!
