Testimonials for a London Building Surveyor

  • The surveyor was like 'Spiderman' - here there and everywhere - very thorough. We will never use a mortgage company surveyor again. In the past when we used one he took half an hour to do the report and the rest of the time drinking my coffee!.

    Testimonial 45.

  • truly excellent survey - many thanks

    Testimonial 46.

  • I have used the same 1st Associated Surveyor twice now and I am satisfied that he always does a very thorough job. Once the building survey was completed I did purchase the pub although the actual buying process was harder than I thought it would be. It started the beginning of August and ended the beginning of December! I found the building survey from 1st Associated was very readable and easy to understand. Overall this was an excellent survey and I would definitely use 1st Associated again and recommend them to family and friends

    Testimonial 47

  • I am very happy with the residential building survey. I met the chartered surveyor during the survey and he chatted to me about what he was doing and was very friendly. I was impressed by the use of the damp meter to check the level of damp, which hadnt occurred to me. The report was well laid out and easy to read and understand, clearly stating what was wrong and how to put it right. Loved the photos and sketches; made the whole thing so much clearer and easier to understand. I would use 1st Associated again and would recommend them to friends/family.

    Testimonial 48

  • I used your Independent Chartered Surveyor to carry out a building survey for me. I met the Chartered Surveyor at the property which I found very useful as I was able to walk around with him and be made aware of any problems he found. The report I found was very readable and the photos were good, easy to understand with not too many technical terms. I would recommend your Chartered Surveyors to my family and friends.

    Testimonial 49

  • Since using your Chartered Surveyor we have taken up the lease on the building in question. After finding the 1stAssociated.co.uk website online and arranging to have a building survey I met the Chartered Surveyor who I found to be very friendly and very helpful at the property. The Chartered Surveyor pointed out various different things but one thing I particularly remember was about heat loss. Overall I was very happy with the service and I would definitely recommend to friends and family.

    Testimonial 50

  • We are still at present in negotiations for the buying of the church. Unfortunately the vendor is very stubborn and they actually think they have a Rolls Royce when what they actually have is an Old Banger. We met the Independent Chartered Surveyor at the property who asked us to explain what we wanted certain areas to be for and the report was then completely structured around us, advising this part of the building can be used for a, b and c but not d and f etc. We feel meeting the Chartered Surveyor at the property was invaluable and whilst with him he gave advice on fire exits and the legalities of certain aspects of the process. Without the expert opinions and advice of your Chartered Surveyor we would probably be in a very different position. We felt the report was easy to understand with not to many technical terms used although if these were used they were properly explained. A star of a surveyor whose opinions we cannot value enough and apart from all of that he is always on hand to lend more advice when we need it.

    Testimonial 51

  • From the building survey the Chartered Surveyor identified subsidence which was not detected when the sellers purchased the property 9 years ago. The report has now been shared with the estate agent and the vendors who are now having their own independent report done. Your Chartered Surveyor offered practical solutions to the problems and we found the report clear and easy to understand.

    Testimonial 52

  • I met the Chartered Surveyor at the property who took me around and pointed out the various problems to me such as the chimney breast that hadnt been supported properly, external cracks and a railway track! As well as this the report I received was written in a readable style and was easy to understand. For other reasons I did not purchase the property surveyed although I have used 1stAssociated Surveyors before and will use them again.

    Testimonial 53

  • Selling my London property was the reason for me using one of your chartered building surveyors for a residential building survey. Although I didnt know the Bedford area I wanted a quieter area away from London but still fairly close to the capital. Due to the findings that came out regarding the property from having one of your residential building surveys I didnt purchase the house! I met the chartered surveyor at the house which was an end of terrace property that had structural problems and subsidence. Being Italian I had no idea of the different problems that could be found in a Victorian property but the surveyor took me around the property showing me bit by bit and explaining the problems in an understandable language. I found the layout of the survey easy to understand and found the approximate costs were very helpful. I also found the photos very good. Overall I was very satisfied with the building survey and in fact I was meant to be using your chartered surveyor again this week but the seller has pulled out.

    Testimonial 54

  • A good school catchment area was the reason I bought this semi-detached Edwardian property in Dulwich after having one of your residential building surveys. After finding the1stAssociated website on the internet and reading some of the interesting articles on the website I arranged for a residential building survey to be done on the property. The chartered surveyor spotted various things with the property that I hadnt seen and made me aware of them both by phone and within the report that was sent to me. The photos in the residential building survey report were very good and the approximate costs and action required section in the residential building survey on various areas I found very useful. Overall I was very pleased with the service and would recommend you to family and friends.

    Testimonial 55

  • Quite refreshing and surpassed all of my expectations. I will definitely recommend your surveying services to friends and family

    Testimonial 74

  • This was a very thorough and detailed survey

    Testimonial 76

  • The survey was very informative and it was great meeting the surveyor on site who was very knowledgeable and explained things very well. I would definitely use again
