Case Study

We carried out a survey on a property in Wheathampstead Road, Harpenden, which uncovered a number of potential issues. The ground floor shower had been leaking into the hall, which was picked up by protimeter. We also established a number of safety hazards for a family with young children, including a pond in the garden, glazed doors without laminated glass and a banister would be easy to climb and fall from.

It was also discovered that there were old light switches and plug sockets without switches, which are a good indicator that the electrics may be old and require checking.

Alan carried out a level 3 homebuyers survey on a house we had an offer accepted on. It was very easy to get hold of him and he responded quickly to our emails. The report was very detailed and came very quickly (the same day when the survey was done). As FTB we had a lot of questions and Alan was very helpful answering our questions and explaining the details. Highly recommend!
