I received the contract after the survey was done - although I did not need it, it would have been good to know about the cancellation costs.

I chose Mr McLaren as the property I am buying is an older stone built house which Mr McLaren has particular experience with. The survey was completed and I received it in good time. The most helpful part of the process for me was the subsequent in depth discussion I had with Mr Mclaren regards the survey contents. He was happy to discuss in depth the property's original construction and therefore the reasons behind the recommendations and remedies he suggested.

Andrew McLaren surveying provided a swift, rigorous and thorough building survey. I am a first time buyer purchasing a period property and the breakdown of costings and work to be undertaken are invaluable in setting a route map for repairs and upgrades. As impressive as the survey document itself is, the most valuable part of the service was the detailed and supportive conversation Andrew provided afterwards - providing me with context, support and advice which is likely to save me money, stress and time in the future. He comes very much fully recommended by me.

I was contacted by Andrew after looking for a quote on this site, I was emailed by him the next morning, a personalized emailed tailored to what I was looking for, not a automated one. He sent over example surveys for me to look through did not pester me and answered any questions that I had no matter how big or small they were. Really impressed with service.

Andrew was extremely professional in his approach, communications and survey. He was extremely prompt at responding to questions and producing the report. Example reports were provided prior to appointing him so we could see the detail/info that would be provided. This was very helpful. The survey itself was very thorough and well laid out. I was able to meet him at the property to discuss concerns and our queries were explained very clearly. I would highly recommend Andrew - his survey saved us from purchasing a poor property and his valuable impartial experience saved us from marking the worst decision in our lives! I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Andrew has now completed two buildings surveys for me, both of which were completed to a high quality and were great value for money. On both occasions Andrew took the time to discuss his findings with me over the phone, giving invaluable advice about how to approach any issues that required further investigation or negotiation with the vendors. Andrew is knowledgeable, friendly and willing to answer any questions you might have. He clearly takes pride in his work and the service he provides. I will recommend him to friends and family without hesitating.

Andrew was prompt and polite in dealing with our request. He made quick progress in arranging to see the property and provided an early telephone report with key points from the survey whilst he was preparing the formal report. This took a few days longer than stated, but was really very thorough with a breakdown of all his observations, limitations to his access and potential areas for focus on the report. There were photographs to accompany his commentary and after the event, he provided additional support to both my wife and myself in interpreting the minutiae of the report and the possible impact on our house purchase. All in all we were very happy with his professionalism, personal touch and attention to detail.
