Cornerstones were very helpful with all questions. Did not mind me bothering them with my worries and concerns. Both people that I spoke to were extremely friendly and easy to converse with. On receipt on the report, I found it easy to read and to understand. Extremely happy with Cornerstones and would definitely recommend to anyone else.

They were able to identify the type of non-standard construction the house was built by and warn of its drawbacks and how to maintain it.

Excellent. If I am really picky, they were slow to respond to emails (this is probably because June being a busy month). Survey was arranged really quickly and a very comprehensive report was received within a week. All points I raised were discussed and explained in the report.

Very happy with the service provided. Survey performed quickly and report arrived on day 5 of the anticipated 5-7 days. Simple to read and not overloaded with jargon. Very helpful and pleasant to deal with, provided pragmatic suggestions to issues raised. Highly recommended.

Completely dissatisfied with the standard of this 'survey'. Surveyor's attitude was couldn't care less when we spoke to him and he was not at all interested in our concerns. We asked for a Homebuyers Report originally (which was actually cheaper) but were advised that for the extra money we would get a more thorough survey. Ha ha. I would never use or recommend this company again.

We are sorry you were not satisfied with the standard of our service. We always take our clients comments and concerns seriously and as stated in our recent email, another visit will be carried out to address your concerns.

I am extremely happy with the service I have received from Cornerstone Surveys. From instruction to receipt of the report was 10 days which is much faster than I was expecting. The report was very comprehensive and easy to understand. I called to discuss the report (for some reassurance) and the surveyor returned my call the same day. The report gave me some good ammunition to renegotiate the purchase price of the property which more than covered the cost of the survey in the first place. Should the need arise, I will definitely call upon their services again and would recommend them to anybody. Thank you very much!
