Testimonial 13: December 2015
Job Type: Structural Building Survey
Location: Honor Oak, London

I was referred to Tayross for a Building Survey by a friend who had used them four times in the past. He said the quality and completeness was at a high standard and that the surveys had stopped him from buying properties with big problems.   So I engaged with Tayross and could not believe the level of detail and the amount of helpful hints and tips included.  It really helped me and my wife make the decision to purchase the property.  Since moving in we’ve had contractors in fixing various items identified by Tayross and each one has been genuinely impressed with the survey and all of them have taken Tayross contact details.  I often recommend them to friends.

Testimonial 12: December 2015
Job Type: Structural Building Survey
Location: Walmer, Kent 

We have nothing but praise for Carl’s experience and extensive knowledge – his inspection visit to a new-build in Walmer, Kent, found many a glitch including one major item that made us think again about buying the property. Carl gave us a really detailed report, as well as immediate verbal feedback on what we had originally thought (and what to us superficially looked) a super house. Sadly, the builder had cut many corners. Tayross Associates more than earned their fee.

Carl has helped me complete my building project with difficult neighbours in a very efficient and professional manner. When I first embarked on my home extension i like many didnt have a clue what a party wall surveyor does or why they are neccessary. Carl took his time to explain everything in a simple but detailed way. His reports/contracts are very easy to read and more importantly to the point.

Thank you Carl for all your help

Hi Carl, thank you so much for all your help, I did not imagine that such a small job could lead to so many questions but thanks for keeping us sane, not killing our neighbours and getting it organised as quickly as you did, I have transferred the payment this evening, thanks again regards Amanda and Roy.

Yes, I found the site very quick and was contacted direct by several of the surveyors, Mr O’Boyle carried out the work as he was local and available at that time. My brother who was commissioning his services was very happy with the speed and helpfulness of Mr O’Boyle.

Thank you for your assistance

Subject: RE: survey -Roundhill

As  Bank Manager for many years  and now an IFA, I have seen hundreds of survey reports,  full of jargon without any clear explanations, where as yours is brilliant and each photo is even labelled highlighting potential problems.  It is clear , concise and explains in simple terms both the risks of purchase and the costs to account for in dealing with these issues.  
Thank you, for seeing my client at such short notice and allowing her to make an informed decision as to whether her new property is a sound investment or not.   I would happily recommend you to all my clients.

Dear Carl,

We are delighted at the service you have provided. The detail of your survey is beyond what we had imagined, and clearly you have a passion for what you do.
