Excellent service!

We instructed Eriss Property Consultants to carry out a Building Survey on a property we were looking to purchase. The survey identified a lot of issues, including rot and water damage to the ground floor and roof structure. There were also issues with the brickwork walls with large areas needing to be re-pointed. David talked us through all of the issues and the repair works that would be...required. Based on the findings of the survey, we decided that it was too much of a financial risk to continue with the purchase, and we decided not to proceed with the purchase. Because we had had such a good experience, we felt comfortable instructing Eriss again to inspect another property we had seen. Again, David undertook the inspection and talked us through all of the issues and the repair works that would be required immediately and longer-term. I have no hesitation in recommending this company for any surveying needs you have.

I was pleased with the review which was comprehensive and and helpful. It was also reassuring to know the property was in reasonable condition. It was well set out and easy to understand. My one problem was that everything is done on the computer and mobile. At the age of 78 I have only limited skills on the computer and no grandchildren near to advise one of the reasons for moving North to be near family. I did manage to print a copy and obviously you received the fee but I worried that it was a lot of money if I had made a mistake. I would have been happy to pay more to have a paper copy and would have been Less worried if I had paid by cheque. Perhaps people don't move at my age or have someone younger to help them. However all is well and I am pleased with the result and looking forward to living in Alnwick. Regards Christine

Hi Christine, Thank you for your review. It is very much appreciated. I have read through your comments and I will make sure that these are addressed. We issue everything electronically as part of our environmental policy to cut down on the amount of paper used by the company. We also issue the report electronically because most people will read it on their mobile device or computer. It also allows them to email the report to solicitors, estate agents etc. Without having to scan the document or make photocopies. However, when requested, we are more than happy to send out a paper copy to our clients at no additional cost. I apologise, that you have had to print this off yourself to allow you to read it. With regards to payment, we accept cheques and bank transfers. The only form of payment we don't take is card payments and cash. If we can be of any further assistance going forward, please do not hesitate to get in touch. Kind regards, David Straughan

First Time Buyers - Homebuyers Report

David conducted a Homebuyers Report for myself and my partner as first time buyers. David was approachable, professional and very personable when dealing with us both.

David conducted the survey within a timely manner and took the time following the survey to run through his findings over the telephone. David ran through the findings in simplistic terms and made sure we passed vital information over to our solicitor in terms of what information we would need them to get from the vendor.

I could not recommend David & Eriss enough!

Building Survey - Excellent Service
5
We instructed Eriss to survey of a property. The survey was carried out in the timescales and the advice and report were exactly what we needed.

We were also able to contact the Surveyor and discuss the issues to make sure we understood exactly what needed to be done.

Testimonials

Image of Eriss Property Consultants
Eriss were recommended to us through our solicitors when buying our very first house and we’re very glad we chose to go with their recommendation. Despite the builders being less than cooperative, David was patient and helped explain issues to us that as first time buyers we had no idea about! One of the only parts of our home buying process that was a breeze. Would definitely be returning customers in future should we move home again.
