Stephen Howes sent us two reports from the area which gave us confidence, we then instructed him to carry out our survey. He got into the property quickly and we were very happy with the survey. It was really thorough and the report looks modern and includes lots of photographs. Stephen was even so kind to take a quick call from me afterwards. Lovely guy, great service. Totally recommend.
I have now reviewed your excellent report and have decided to withdraw my offer. I am concerned about the build and also resale potential plus asbestos is always a nono. I will be looking again at properties and would not hesitate to contact you again for another survey. I will be sticking to bricks and mortar!
I highly recommend Stephen Howes. We have had many surveys done in the 40 years we have bought and sold houses and this was in a different league - by far the best. Apart from being reliable (the survey being done when agreed), the report was excellent. The report was extremely thorough and detailed, very clearly written and the photos very useful. Stephen was pleasant to deal with, responded very quickly to phone calls and emails, and very generous with his time, answering my questions and advising about some of the issues raised by the report on the phone. I much appreciated all of this. I will be recommending him to anyone I know looking for a survey.
The report was very thorough and detailed with photos and an easy to understand structure. A reasonable price for the work done and Stephen worked overtime (weekend) to get the report to us on time which was much appreciated. The report comes with detailed photos and cross referenced comments and a checklist of work to do which is really helpful when looking at a forward maintenance programme (if you decide to buy the house!). Thank you!
Very quick to respond, to carry out the survey itself and to send the report. Also responded quickly to queries raised by the solicitor, which was very helpful.
Fast, efficient, excellent service. Highly recommended. In hindsight, we wish we had used Stephen for our initial property valuation for the sale of our property, rather than just our Home Buyers Report on the purchase!
We are almost settled into our new abode and finally have time to start exploring the property in detail. In doing so, we can now appreciate the depth of the survey that was carried out by Stephen. Very thorough. Money well spent.
We used chartered surveyor Stephen. he was really helpful throughout the process. He was very efficient; the survey was completed within a few days of my initial phone call and the report published just a couple of days later. We found the survey and report to be very thorough.
The building survey report was comprehensive and very helpful. The service was quick, reliable and answered all my questions.
The survey was detailed and thorough, and Stephen (our surveyor) was helpful and responsive throughout
Wonderful service, prompt, thorough well written survey and Stephen was super responsive and helpful
The company conducts themselves very professionally with customer service and after sales service of a very high standard. the cost is very reasonable and should I require a surveyor again in the future I will be sure to look them up. the report Stephen provided was clear, comprehensive and easily understandable. Will definitely recommend.
Survey performed promptly and a detailed report was produced within a few days
I was very impressed by the examples of building surveys that this company had undertaken in the past and I really liked the fact that they even took photo's so it made it quite clear as to what they were referring to in the report. The report was written very professionally but also in a way that I was able to understand.
