Black Cat has just purchased a drone to examine at close quarters, previously inaccessible areas. These areas include: chimney pots, chimney stacks, lead flashing, roof tiles, ridges and gutters.

Most houses have problems with these items and inspecting from ground level with binoculars can be difficult. Black Cat have the advantage of using a drone which most other surveyors don’t have access to. For a small extra fee Black Cat will utilise the drone to inspect these inaccessible areas to give our clients a more complete picture, literally as the drone records photos and video of these areas.

Really great service from Ed and BlackCat. Ed, kept me informed and delivered a very high quality survey, especially the large number of pictures he took during the Survey.

Very good service. Survey booked in quickly. Ed spend a long time debriefing on his findings and answering questions before sending the report which was very helpful. Would recommend.

We used Black Cat Surveyors to conduct a full structural survey on our purchase of a 100+ year old property. We were very happy with the level of service provided by Ed – the report arrived within a week and was thorough and easy to understand for first time buyers such as ourselves. It came with a link to an online directory of 300 photos he had taken during his inspection. This is above and beyond the service offered by other surveyors and by having a photo to refer to, made it much easier to follow the points outlined in his report. The report was followed up with a phone call where we had the chance to go over any questions we had or areas which needed further explanation/clarification. Based on our experience, I would happily recommend Ed Farmer to anyone looking for a chartered surveyor.

Ed is a very knowledgeable Surveyor, he called to go through what he saw at the property and reassured us of our concerns with the full structural survey, however it took two weeks to finally receive the report due to him being too busy which he did apologise for. We then felt that his survey was rushed with some simple typing errors and we were disappointed that we had given the job to this Surveyor over other companies that quoted. He also turned up to the property to carry out the survey 3 hours late despite me calling him and his office around 10 times on the day. With the vendor complaining to the estate agent this caused unnecessary stress and made us worry about whether the surveyor would turn up. This may have been a one off however I am disappointed that I cannot recommend this company.
