From the very first consultation, SHS gave me perfect guidance. Every team member delivered professional, swift & considered advice and unparalleled service. They took the stress away and I can’t thank them enough.
Extremely satisfied with what we received. I’ve never seen a survey so detailed. The service was great from David. On the day of the survey, David provided me with a concise verbal update which was excellent, followed by the complete survey within another 3 working days. We feel highly reassured that everything is sound and are very pleased with the service we received. Would highly recommend.
It was our first time buying a property, so we really had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. Steve surveyed two properties for us in the same week as our plans changed at short notice due to his advice. Cannot fault their knowledge and expertise on buildings and they explained things excellently so that even we could understand. Highly recommend!
I was on a tight schedule and David really pulled out all the stops for us and got the survey booked in, surveyed and back to us in under a week. I honestly can’t recommend this man enough truly brilliant.
I used them on a word of mouth recommendation, I can now see why they were recommended.
We were delighted with the survey David provided us with and we felt assured that it was a good property to buy. Highly recommended.
David is extremely professional, diligent, responsive and communicative. From our very first conversation with him I felt we were in ‘safe hands’. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him as a trusted RICS surveyor.
Fantastic experience with Smith Surveyors. Highly professional and timely. Undertook a damp survey in our 1820 home. Highlighted a number of elements that needed to be fixed.
Fast, professional service. Would recommend to friends and family.
Smith Heritage Surveyors are professional, thorough, and kept me up to date and excellent customer service. Recommended
Such a lovely chap and was so helpful during the walk around, gave me lots of advice that was well beyond the brief, so I am truly thankful and glad we chose these guys.
