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.

Sue Holden - July 2020
Had a survey Carried out on a property we are buying, wasn’t a standard construction so wanted a proper structural. Jane was super helpful and always responded quickly, especially to my long list of questions! Would certainly use again.

Having been most pleased with a similar survey completed around 4 years ago, I was confident of a good service again and was not disappointed. The whole process was efficient, communications excellent and the report comprehensive. All worked extremely well and I would recommend their services.

I needed a full structural engineer survey done on a property we were buying. Everyone I spoke to at Structural Surveys Ltd was extremely helpful, accommodating, polite and got back to me as quickly as possible. The report was sent to us the day after the survey- I was really impressed with the quick turnaround. Thank you!

I highly recommend Andrew Russell and Structural Surveys Ltd. I initially booked him because he looked like the most highly qualified structural engineer I could find. Upon meeting him, it was apparent that he was very knowledgeable, and also a very pleasant bloke, who took time to explain his findings in a much detail as I'd like. He was always available to contact to discuss any extra questions that I had and his report was delivered in record time. It put my mind at rest to have an expert opinion on the structural issues with my house and now I have a clear plan on how to deal with them. I wouldn't hesitate to use Structural Surveys Ltd again.
Andrew Robinson - December 2016
I was very impressed with the quick booking time I got, and the short time it took for me to actually receive the report through (same day). It sped up my mortgage process greatly and I will recommend this company in the future. Thanks :)
Amy Morris - August 2018
Great service from start to finish. Always happy to answer queries, brilliant turn around time for getting the paperwork ( next working day after survey). Report is really in depth and is easy to understand. I would definitely use this company again.
Daniele Meynell - March 2019
The surveyor was very professional polite and really helpful . As the house was empty and my wife requires 24hr care I had no issues in leaving him at the house as he said that he would call me as soon as he was about to finish which he did . Thanks
J Newitt - February 2021
I would like to say thank you to Jane, and Andrew, for the way you have dealt with my request and the high level of detail that has gone into my survey. It is extremely in depth but also simple to understand. For this reason, I would be strongly recommending yourselves to anybody who requires a structural survey in the future.
