Very happy with the Home Buyers Report carried out by Alan. We received the 119 page report and photos later the same day. Alan is very professional and is happily available to answer any questions you may have. We have just exchanged contracts and looking forward to moving in soon. We highly recommend Alan and wouldn’t use anyone else!

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!
