We recently had a buildings survey completed by Alan. We couldn't be happier with the service that we received. Alan kept us up to date leading up to the survey and sent through the report really quickly once the survey had been completed. Alan was also available for follow up questions we had. An easy 5 star rating.

Alan recently carried out a survey on a property I am hoping to buy. The report was much more detailed and thorough than I expected and drew attention to items I had not thought of. The report - running to over 100 pages- was emailed to me on the same day that the survey was undertaken. Overall I was very impressed with the service, thank you

I was introduced to Alan when he carried out an EPC survey and a structural survey on behalf of our buyer. I was impressed with Alan's thoroughness and professionalism. Later when I needed a full structural survey on a property that I was purchasing I had no hesitation in asking Alan. Our survey was carried out quickly and professionally and we received the written report within 24 hours. I would have no hesitation recommending Alan Rance Surveyors.

Alan carried out a full structural survey which was really comprehensive and not only covered any work required to the property but on going advice regarding maintenance for each area of the property. Thankfully only one minor issue that was spotted and I have been able to rectify that myself. I would thoroughly recommend as a really helpful and knowledgeable chap who has also been incredibly helpful regarding a damp issue in one of our rental properties. Thank you, so much Alan.

I have recently instructed Alan on two properties On the first he saved me from trouble, and I withdrew my offer. On 2nd his advice and guidance has enabled me to obtain quotes for the remedial works prior to agreeing the sale. Alan is very helpful, knowledgeable, and offers a very professional and efficient service. I would highly recommend Alan! He is brilliant!

If you are looking for a property surveyor then this is a first class professional service I totally recommend. The survey carried out on our behalf showed major issues with the property. On that information I retracted my offer saving me money and time. Thank you once again I will be using Alan J Rance Limited again.
