Customer Feedback

Please see below for some Customer Feedback on our website, and on any of the Suppliers listed on the website that they chose to use:

Very useful site , will definitely use again. Excellent service and communication , from initial contact through to full explanation of report. I liked that on the day he conducted the survey, he took the time to email me that evening with a brief outline of his findings, so I was not left wondering the outcome until the full report was available. Highly recommended service with a good price. Thank you Overall Rating: 5 - excellent
Janis, Fareham
Due to bad property luck I have had the pleasure of using David's services three times now on three different properties. He has gone above and beyond every single time with no exception. Prompt summary of the survey is followed by a thorough, in depth but easy to read report highlighting an easy to follow action plan. Any time I had additional queries or sought his advice on a matter he was more than willing to help out. A more professional yet friendly service you will not find elsewhere and I have recommended him to family and friends ever since.
Alice, Aldershot
Promptness of response : A very quick response Quality of service : Given that I only requested a Homebuyer's Report, I was surprised by the amount of detail it went into - much more comprehensive than I had expected. Value for money : Excellent value for money. Worth every penny. Professionalism : I have also spoken with the vendor of the property I am buying and he was impressed with the professionalism and openness of the surveyor. I would be very happy to recommend Cosey Homes Chartered Surveyors.
Graham, Wisbech Cambridgeshire
Jake Scraggs was the surveyor and he gave me the best and most complete, comprehensive survey ever, complete with a photograph of all the faults of this house, of which there were many. I decided not to buy this house, money well spent, thank you.
Angela, St Neots Cambridgeshire
Promptness of response : Very easy to book, and the survey took place earlier than expected. Professionalism : The surveyor called us the evening of the survey to give a verbal report. The written survey took a few days longer than we expected, but we already had the pertinent facts so it wasn't an issue.
Ms Oliver, Leeds
