Sarah was brilliant for us. From our initial contact via a price comparison site she kept us informed of the process, fees, and how/when she would undergo the survey. It was a quick process with Sarah visiting the property we wanted to buy within four working days and we received her homebuyers level 2 survey report three days after the visit. The report was very detailed and flagged quite a few issues with the property which we didn't previously know about. Sarah then offered to talk us through her findings and a follow up call was arranged with her explaining why she had rated certain things, such as the roof and chimney stacks, as in need of serious repair. She then recommended solutions and talked us through potential next steps which was incredibly helpful. If any further questions arise or we are unsure over any stage of the process going forward, for example which specific tradesperson to contact for which job, Sarah is on the end of the phone to guide us in the right direction. She was kind, fair, and honest throughout and did a top class job for us. I would certainly recommend her services.

I contacted Sarah when I decided to look at purchasing a cottage. Sarah had the documents sent across and survey booked within minutes. Survey was completed the very next day to an extremely thorough level. The report was sent over within a couple of days. I have had a survey in the past and can say it was nowhere near the level and detail of Sarah's work. The report was clear, concise and very easy to understand. I was able to contact her over the phone to discuss any issues and no question was a problem. I will 100% be using SJH again in future.

I found Sarah via the RICS site and emailed asking a quote to value my home for a legal process. As it was Xmas I didn’t expect a reply for a few days, however Sarah responded immediately, arranged a visit for 3 days later. Quote and online docs were sent by Sarah to be electronically signed. I received the professional written valuation within hours of the visit. Sarah turned up on time, did the job no fuss, no ceremony. Highly recommended.

Sarah from the very start was amazing. I just needed someone to talk me through the process and give me the peace of mind needed. Sarah was also willing to have a good chat with me about what was in the report over the phone.5*

SJH is very efficient. I gave instruction of surveying on Thursday. The inspection was carried out on Tuesday of the following week, and the report was sent to me two days after. The report is in detail, lists out every observations and suspected issues, which many of them were not spotted by me during the viewing. Minor typos are found in the report though. Not affects the content, but will look more professional if improved. Sarah is also very friendly and helpful too. She answered my every queries and provided valuable recommendations.

We contacted Sarah on the Monday. She had booked the level 2 survey for the next day!!! We had the survey emailed to us on Thursday, just 3 days after the initial enquiry. We couldn't believe it. Amazing service from start to finish. The survey is very detailed and in depth. What more could we ask for. Very competitive price too. We would recommend to all.

Sarah carried out a very thorough Level 2 survey for us on a property we are purchasing. Sarah carried out the survey and got back to us very quickly with a concise and clear appraisal of the property. Thank you Sarah of SJH Surveying Services for a great job we would recommend their services to anyone in the future.

From the beginning, Sarah was clear, thorough and really easy to get in contact with. Sarah managed to book in our structural survey within the hour and visit the property 2 days later. After the survey, Sarah phoned myself and explained red flags and urgent attention needed which made myself and my partner aware of the problems with the property. We were under the impression that the house was ready to move into with no immediate attention, however after Sarah's thorough survey this was not the case. Sarah has saved us thousands of pounds which we cannot thank her enough for. Even though Sarah's prices were more expensive than other quotes we were receiving, it was worth the money as we were able to communicate with Sarah during the whole process. She was always at the other end of the phone which we would not be able to experience with other surveyor companies. I cannot recommend Sarah enough!
