* Total west of money, didn't check roof given reason that it is not safe, mostly all Victorian property have same place and same way to get in loft, surveyor giving reason that its not safe to go if owner will provide safe access for that then he will do it for free when he will be in area . * Didn't give exact report like normal building survey should be . he recommend CCTV survey for drain, damp proofing survey, roof checked by someone else , all this things should be covered in building survey but its not * when i have instructed they said i will get report next week called twice after week completed then i have got report

Our survey was conducted thoroughly to all accessible areas and detailed in the report which we provided to the client. We were unable to gain access into the roof void as the opening was too small to permit safe entry and carry out a thorough inspection of the roof structure. We advised the client, it was prudent for the opening to be widened to enable access, we also advised that we will revisit the property to inspect and report on the condition once the vendor arranges alternative access. We made the client aware of typical defects known in a Victorian roof space and we strongly advised on a re inspection to be carried out by us prior to the client committing with the purchase of the property. There was no added cost for any re inspection. Other recommendations reported such as damp proofing works and Close Circuit Television Survey was considered necessary following our notes of dampness and blockage in some of the drains when we lifted the manholes. Obtaining cost for remediation works will enable the client to establish the likely cost deemed necessary including any potential financial liabilities.

Comprehensive report on a property in north Norfolk, with plenty of useful advice. 30% cheaper than most other companies in the area. Survey carried out fairly promptly, report emailed 12 working days later. Surveyor was available and happy to give verbal update on a query ahead of providing report.

I would definitely recommend this company for the quality of work that was excellent which also played a key role in re-negotiation the purchase price however the firm must include more pictures in the building survey report and improve on the availability schedule to carry out the survey as in my instance I agreed to carry out the survey on a set date via text message however due to lack of communication, that date was allocated to someone else. Regardless of this minor issue which I am sure will help improve the service, you can rely on the most important thing i.e. the final report and Scott's experience to explain certain things clearly.

Thanks for all, I would suggest to call the customer and show where the works need to be carried out. I would really appreciate it.
