Dear Vanessa and Scott, I am emailing you both to express my heartfelt sentiments over the high level of professionalism and determination you have presented whilst negotiating a party wall agreement between ourselves and our neighbours. This was an awkward and difficult case, there have been times of great stress during the process and throughout it there was always grounded reassurance, patience and support which in the end prevailed. Vanessa, I need to thank you in particular for always being reliable, and going beyond what your job asks of you. Scott, you have an incredible employee. She needs a promotion! We will definitely come back again as and when an opportunity arises. Thank you both very much for taking care of us in this process.
I requested a full building survey in March 2016. I chose Scott Buchanan even if his fee was slightly higher than others. After reading his long report, I must say his service is worth every penny. The report was very detailed, covering all aspects of the house. In contrast to some other surveyors who in their report may suggest you seek further professional advice from relevant experts on some tricky items, Scott Buchanan is very knowledgeable and provided his decisive opinions on many things. He also dealt with my post-survey queries by emails and phones. It feels like I have been given a user manual for the property. I would highly recommend Scott Buchanan’s service from Squarepoint Chartered Surveyors.
Brilliant and professional surveyors. Squarepoint Chartered Surveyors helped us sort out our Party Wall Agreement with patience, speed and professionalism throughout. They are helpful, polite and organised. They also had to deal with a very unprofessional surveyor that our neighbour had appointed – which they did brilliantly. The price was very fair and they kept us up to date throughout, offering advice and help when needed. I would highly recommend Squarepoint Chartered Surveyors to anyone looking for a surveyor.
I was extremely pleased with the excellent service provided by Scott Buchanan of Squarepoint Chartered Surveyors, and I hope to contact yourselves in due course with a view to getting further advice.
Many thanks for all your help in arranging the external work to go so smoothly and efficiently.
Thanks once again for a great job and I will not hesitate to recommend Squarepoint Chartered Surveyors to friends and family in the future.
I was buying a refurbished property and got a couple of quotes for a survey. Most surveyors outlined that a full survey probably wasn’t required given the refurbished state of the property. However, once I spoke to Scott who outlined it was worth it given the marginal difference in cost of the full survey compared to the value of the property and some of the concerns when buying a refurbished property, it was a no brainer for me. Scott also price matched the quote of a competitor and I felt from there in Scott was the best person to use.
I’m grateful for Scott’s initial advice with respect to the type of survey as many imperfections of the property would not have been picked up in a standard survey in order to be corrected by the vendor so it was well worth the money. The survey was a key tool in negotiating with the vendor. Scott’s survey was very comprehensive, easy to read and he has an impressive eye for detail when it comes to locating defects in a property.
Scott was also on hand to walk through the title documentation provided by the Vendor in relation to the refurbishment (such as building certificates, installation and works guarantees) to ensure I had all the relevant documents for completion purposes. I would thoroughly recommend Scott for any survey and have also been back to Scott for advice on another property since using him. A 10 out of 10 service.
Thank you so much for going the extra mile in regards to the service you provide – you are a legend.
From the very first time I called Scott, he was very attentive to my requirements for a building survey. From the outset he noted down my areas of concern, updated me with progress prior to the survey and gave me a thorough debrief after the survey. The quality of his report was excellent, very easy to understand and, importantly, comprehensive.
