Very professional and took time to discuss findings in a clear and concise manner that augmented the written report which enabled me to make a risk-based decision to purchase. Highly recommended

The facility to request a fee proposal from a panel of surveyors was extremely useful, as I was in contact with them very quickly which assisted with the selection process.

..A service that one needs very infrequently, so having this resource to hand made the search very simple, We have appointed one of the companies that made contact, and they were out to the property very promptly. We have had an initial consultation with the engineer on the day following the survey and are now awaiting the formal report - Very speedy and informative.

after deciding to move to somerset we needed a surveyor and chose to use Local Building Surveyor to find one. the site was easy to use and I soon found a suitable surveyor, West Country Surveyors. I contacted David Clare, who explained clearly the details etc, I sent him the details of the property, and he accepted the job and has arranged all access to carry out the survey. I found both the site and West country surveyors, excellent and would recommend them to anyone looking for a surveyor in the area

Responses were almost immediate and prices were more reasonable than when I was looking just by myself. The company I chose was efficient and easy to relate with - and they could fit in an appointment date within three working days. I was pleased with the result. Now you've got me because the questions that follow do not fit the kind of service provided. What's going on?
