Superstar Karl

I recently bought a property and used Karl as our surveyor, buying a house can be incredible stressful and we came across lots of issues. Karl went above and beyond to look into every matter, his incredible knowledge of really everything made the whole process so much simpler. I would highly recommend him to anyone buying a house and I would jump to use him again in an instant. Thank you again for being so brilliant.

Karl is the epitome of professional

Karl has done a homebuyers' report for us. He was the epitome of professional. He was clear about what he would do and the timings. He kept us up to date with progress. And the report was thorough and detailed, yet also clear in what was necessary to action.

Helpful and Supportive

Karl was extremely helpful and supportive in a nasty dispute with a builder. He wrote a comprehensive report which we used to support our case in Alternative Dispute Resolution, and also provided great advice that will be useful to us going forward. Communication was excellent throughout. Karl also remained unflappable when the builder started making nasty claims around his competence - all total lies but horrid all the same. I can recommend Karl for support in domestic building disputes!

Clear photos, succinct explanations

The level 2 homebuyer report Karl produced was thorough and easy to understand with lots of clear photos and succinct explanations. He surveyed some quite difficult to reach areas like the loft and flat roof. Even the insides of fitted cupboards were inspected. There was guidance on what further information and documents to request from the sellers. In a follow-up phone call Karl was generous with his time, happy to answer all our questions and explain relevant building techniques to us. He responded quickly to emails and calls, is experienced and knowledgeable about the local area and I would be happy to hire him again.
