The surveyor we used was very helpful, quick and provided a very informative home buyers report. The site is very helpful when you are not based in the area the survey is required.

Good interface, and all three surveyors who 'quoted' via the platform subsequently contacted me. Obviously these three were only a very small part of the pool of local surveyors, however

Brilliant service and very thorough report received. Our surveyor gave a market value less than we had offered for the property which led to us doing further research and ultimately trying to renegotiate our offer. We didn't get very far and eventually had to pull out, but I'd rather do that at this stage than live with regrets. I would highly recommend our surveyor and will use him again once I've found a new home.
