An excellent service. It was a pleasure to deal with David, who kept us up to date, provided us with immediate feedback on the day of the survey with the full report following a few days later. I recommend without hesitation.

I was very impressed with the service I received. The survey was booked quickly, I received an email summarising the main points later that evening and then received the full report within a few days. The report was easy to read and understand and it was very comprehensive backed up by a considerable number of photographs. Overall an excellent service, thank you Will.

The service provided was quick and professional. We had a few concerns about buying an older property as our first home, but David's thorough and professional survey and report really put our minds at rest. He addressed our specific concerns directly and was even so kind as to meet me at the property on the day of the survey to run through any key findings ahead of supplying the report a week later. He was also very happy to discuss a further matter with our solicitor a couple of weeks after the survey. We had a short time to complete our purchase, and were really pleased that David was able to visit the property only a few days after we instructed him and returned the thorough report to us only a few days after that. All in all an excellent service, and one I would certainly recommend.

I had a building survey carried out by William Glancy at Lion House and found him to be extremely efficient. He arranged the survey very quickly, provided me with a summary of his findings on the evening of his visit, then I received the full survey a few days later. He kept me informed and was courteous and professional throughout the process. I would definitely use him again and would recommend to others. All in all, a speedy professional service at a good price.

Lion House surveys provided us with a great service and survey at a competitive price. None of our friends/family were able to recommend a surveyor to us so we went searching for one. Reallymoving.com was recommended on Money Saving expert (who we trust) and gave us 5 quotes for what we needed. We picked Lion House surveys due to their reviews and they speed to response to our initial emails even at weekends!. The date for the survey was set and done in less than a week (they even moved some stuff around as our vendor was only able to accommodate certain days) and initial findings where send to us that evening (at midnight!) and it took another week for the full report including pictures which was comprehensive and informative. Unfortunately our purchase fell through but we will be using Lion House again when we find another house and now have a recommendation if anyone asks us!

By a considerable way the cheapest quote i received. Very efficient, replying immediately (even late at night) to e-mails. Arranged survey within a week and fed back summary of results on night of survey. Full report less than a week later with photographs of all problems found. Extremely comprehensive report which was of great value in renegotiating the price of our house - cost of survey more than paid for itself. Strongly recommended.
