Level 3 survey

Matthew carried out a level 3 survey for us on a victorian property with extensive renovations. He spent a significant amount of time on site and produced a really thorough and comprehensive report. He followed up with a phone call on the day of the survey and even offered to review photos of work to be completed after the survey. Would highly recommend

Very good service. Matthew responded quickly to my request for a survey, and did the job just a few days later. His report was very detailed, and noted a few small items for me to attend to soon after moving.
I would use this service again without hesitation. Full marks!

Level 3 survey

Matthew carried out a level 3 survey on the property I was buying. The report was excellent, gave me all the details I needed. He was very approachable and happy to help with any questions I had. I used the report to negotiate a £30,000 reduction on the agreed price.

I have no hesitation in recommending Matthew. He has done two Level 2 surveys for me and in each case he was prompt, responsive, and provided a very thorough report with clear text and informative photographs. I feel very fortunate that I found him through the RICS website. The key difference was that he responded to me directly (rather than through an office administrator) and I was able to talk to him about my impressions of the property so that he understood and was able to answer my specific questions, as well as covering all the things I didn't know I needed to know! Great service from a true professional.

We've worked with Matthew multiple times, and he consistently provides insightful and clear reports. In one case, a report highlighted several problems and the builders didn't address them adequately, so we decided not to buy. In another instance, a report clearly pointed out an issue that needed fixing, and the seller promptly paid for a professional to address it. We would easily recommend him to anyone looking to buy a house.

Great Service and Detailed Survey

I initially chose Matthew at In-House purely from a small
Selection of surveyors that came up on a web search, and I was happy with my choice. I found the report very detailed which gave me exactly what i wanted to know from a mid range survey and Matthew answered any questions i had . He was very clear about what the report would and would not provide so i knew what i was getting for the fee. I would happily use Matthew again if i ever need to do another house survey and would definitely recommend In-House to others. The reports ate easy to understand and with photos to support the written findings.

Homebuyers Report

Matt has just carried out a homebuyer survey on a property I’m in the process of buying in Aylesbury. I can’t fault the service I’ve received from obtaining a quote to booking in the survey to receiving the final report it was faultless. The report I received 5 days after the survey was completed was comprehensive giving me advice on what I should do to rectify the issues found. Matt then contacted me a few days after to ensure everything was ok and whether I had any questions. I would definitely recommend Matt (and Anna on the admin side) without hesitation and happily give them 5 stars.

Amazing Service

Matthew provided us with a full Level 3 survey along with additional information on estimated repair costs in preparation for us purchasing our new property. The survey was incredibly detailed with invaluable photographic evidence to support his findings. Even post survey, whereby we had several queries on some major faults, he was highly professional and more than accommodating in assisting us. I can’t recommend him enough

Excellent service - very flexible, very prompt and extremely thorough. Matthew picked up several crucial items which needed addressing and which we would just not have noticed. Would thoroughly recommend him.

Throughout the process of employing Martin to conduct our home buyers report he was prompt professional and willing to answer additional questions.

The survey itself was well laid out and easy to understand. It had a good traffic light system which provided a quick reference which accompanied a good amount of detail which created a clear picture of the house.

We would be happy to use Martin again and would recommend him to anyone.

Matthew's service was exemplary and we cannot recommend him enough. The building report was done in a timely manner with excellent communication and, when things went wrong with the purchase, Matthew was very helpful and generous. We would (and gave) recommended - thank you.

Matthew's level 3 survey report on my house was extremely detailed and easy to understand. He responded quickly to questions I had arising from the report. I would recommend him if you want a prompt and thorough survey.

The whole process was fantastic, everything was very well communicated by Matthew. His report was incredibly thorough and he was able to look into things outside of the normal scope on our request.

We have used Matthew for 2 surveys now, all very informative and easy to understand. Hence the second, as the first changed our mind on a purchase! Survey was well detailed and very prompt. Very happy with price. Will use again when the time comes!

Very helpful survey that clearly flagged the issues. Matthew was prompt in attending the property and delivering the survey report. I’d definitely use him again.

Homebuyers Survey
Posted by Clare Stringfellow on 21-07-2022 13:39:35 | Rating:

Really happy with the whole process. Matthew was very friendly and approachable and fitted me in quickly. I explained that we were in a hurry because we had a change of plans in the house we were buying and now our purchaser was on our backs to complete ASAP.

I had called one of the larger firms of surveyors and was not happy that they had asked for money upfront and then told me that they couldn't do the survey for 3 weeks. So, I then had to wait for a refund of my money.

Inhouse agree a date and only invoiced me on the day of the inspection.

Matthew called me the day after the inspection to explain his findings and advised me to get some further investigations done. He explained everything in plain English. As he had given me advance warning I was able to arrange the further investigation straight away and did not delay my purchase.

We received the full report a few days later. We were both impressed by the detail and photographs to back up each point.

I had paid previously paid for a Level 3 survey on the property we had originally planned to buy but actually, Mathew's level 2 report appeared to be more detailed.

Would definitely recommend.
