Our survey was very quick! From booking the appointment to receipt of the report was only 8 business days (booked Aug 7, survey Aug 13, report received Aug 16). The report was very thorough and easy to understand. Would definitely use Local Buildings Surveyors again. Many thanks for your service!

A very good and helpful service, I found a Surveyor, the type I was looking for and having spoken to them a few times I am pleased so far, however the survey hasn’t taken place yet so the 5 stars doesn’t include the survey.

Great platform, was able to select a highly reputable Surveyor in CS Surveying & Architectural Design. The reviews were accurate and John from CS Surveying was incredibly knowledgeable, helpful and thorough. His survey was very detailed and digestible with all facets broken down in to whether they are of concern or not, and to what extent and cost. His communication with myself and the vendors on my behalf has been perfect. Very very happy with the service and the cost.

Very easy to use, submitted details and what I needed and received several quotes that gave me a good idea on different surveyors and the services they offered. I had excellent communication from Nest chartered surveyors, via email and decided to use them even though they were not the cheapest but still very competitive. Easy to book and informative phone call from the surveyor after he had completed his survey. A few days later I received the full report.

I have used Chris twice recently and cannot recommend him highly enough. Throughout the process he kept us fully informed and, on completion of the survey. answered all our questions on areas we were unsure of.

What is the RICS?

RICS - London

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors is the organisation responsible for the training and regulation of Chartered Surveyors. To be listed on Local Building Surveyors, surveyors must be either a RICS Member (MRICS/FRICS) or a Firm Regulated by the RICS, so you can be assured that your survey will be carried out by a fully qualified regulated professional.
