  • This was the 5th or maybe even the 6th time I have used one of your Independent Chartered Surveyors with three building surveys being done by yourselves in the same year! Although the building surveys seem a lot of money at the time it is money I feel that is very, very well spent. I really enjoy buying properties for my own personal use and love spending time doing them up but then seem to get itchy feet and decide to move on to the next property. The last residential building survey I had done was on a Grade 2 listed property. I met the Chartered Surveyor at the property. He was really helpful and full of knowledge and as we were walking around the property he gave me lots of extra information such as the correct names of some of the house beams etc. He also mentioned death watch beetle which frightened me to death as I personally hate insects! Buying an older property is quite daunting as there can sometimes be so much wrong with it. Damp and woodworm were found in this particular property by the surveyor and as a the purchaser you sometimes have no idea of where to start or how to put things right but the surveyor was very helpful and gave me advice for the problems such as you just need to do this, this and this and generally pointed me in the right direction which really put my mind at rest and made what seemed to me like a large problem become much smaller and easier to sort out. I find the way the surveys are laid out very easy to understand and what is lovely is the way they are tailor made for me personally. The photographs and sketches in the building surveys are great. I have also used your 1stAssociated.co.uk website to read numerous interesting property related articles. One of the hardest things about the whole buying process although nothing to do with your survey or surveyor I found was waiting for the contracts to exchange. The other people involved were delaying and in the end we gave them a deadline of 3pm on the Monday and the contracts were literally exchanged a few minutes to 3pm. The whole house buying process I would say took about six weeks from start to finish. I regularly recommend you to family and friends and wouldnt use anybody else!
