This service was really easy to use and provided 4 quotes very speedily. Despite commissioning a surveyor from the list no progress has unfortunately been made due to Coronavirus. Outside control of LBS.

The surveyor turned up on time and completed his work promptly and with little disturbance. He explained all the relevant details to me and made some good suggestions about the gas and electric systems which I have acted upon. Great service at what I believe to be a good price.

First time user. Suggested surveyors/companies all gave prompt responses with follow up phone call or email. Excellent service took a lot of the legwork out of the task.

I wasn't expecting too much from this service as have utilised services like this in the past and have ALWAYS been disappointed, but I have been very pleased with the service provided and even had prompt, efficient responses from surveyors with varying quotes. Having selected a surveyor the service they have provided was fast and professional, needless to say would highly recommend.

Response from a number of surveyors was quick, however, I engaged a surveyor who said she could do the job at a reasonable price in a short time. Since then I have been unable to seek to her, she does not return my telephone calls or E-mails. Very poor service.
