Failed to spot and identify aspestos in a walk way to the side of my house. You almost trip over it when you walk pass it.
My surveyor was unsympathetic and gave me every excuse under the sun and told me to have is confirmed as aspestos which now has been. It would be better to just say he made a mistake, sorry, how can I help.
I have an 18 month child that I can't let out in the back garden because it could easily be tampered with.
What a shambles.
We arranged a survey with MM for a private house purchase. Once we'd agreed the price with MM, everything else was trouble-free - they arranged the visit date directly with the seller, so no hassle for us.
I wasn't expecting to hear anything until I received the report, but had a call from the surveyor immediately after the visit - on a Saturday - to give me a verbal run-down of the survey results pending the delivery of the official report. This was great - 'above and beyond', so to speak - and meant we didn't spend the weekend wondering whether everything would be ok to proceed.
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
Booked my survey with no problem at all, was very quick in coming back to me and carrying out the survey. But the surveyor said he couldn't gain access to all rooms in the house, even though he had keys so only half the survey carried out but still charged the full amount.
MM served me well with a prompt, polite, competitively priced and friendly survey.
Follow-up queries, even some six months later, were dealt with in an exemplary and professional manner.
Thank you Louise Crompton and Belinda Warner - I cannot rate you highly enough.
Very easy to arrange the survey online, professional and quick service, reasonable priced survey with all the information I needed. I chose this company after reading reviews online and I would be happy to recommend them.
I had a verbal report by phone after the survey and then by email soon after, which I printed out. Dealt with my questions both online and by phone very well.
Needed a survey quick. Was cheaper than locally based surveyors so was intially scepital. Ladies in the office very down to earth and professional, rather than snooty high brow over proffesional off putting staff.
I was able to meet the surveyor after his inspection for a 15min debrief. 1st class sensible advice back up in writing within 2 days. I'd have no hesitation to recommend the surveyor or the Miller metcalf, my survey was for a property in Blackpool.
The money spent on the survey saved £9K in remedial work that was not obvious to the ameutuer investor. Thank you,
We chose from a list on the computer and picked Miller Metcalfe Surveyors. They provided an immediate over the telephone condensed report on completion of the surveyor and followed this up with a full email report. The report was very detailed and left nothing to chance. I rang to speak to the surveyor about some queries I had and he was very helpful and explained things carefully and in a language I could understand. I would definitely use again.
fantastic price, fantastic service, very clear report
We originally decided to purchase a house which we had surveyed through Miller Metcalfe (before instructing solicitors) so glad we did as they picked up several issues we were not aware of and so we decided to not go ahead, we didn't hesitate to use them a second times in a matter of weeks when we found another house, again some points were raised that we did not know about but have since had the vendors sort out those issues and the sale is now proceeding (again surveyed before solicitors instructed not sure if that's the norm but wouldn't do it any other way) would recommend them without hesitation.
Nick the surveyor made the experience a great one, shame he was let down by the back office staff when I queried the year the house was built, the value of the property and how much it would cost to rebuild it, all of which you need for insurance purposes. Michelle kindly informed me that these "technical" queries would cost me an additional £150!! A basic valuation tells you all of these things and yet the survey with all the bells and whistles and costs you the most only gives you the year the house was built.
If it wasn't for Nick who was very customer oriented they would have got 1 star. If Nick was the only one I dealt with after booking they would have got 5.
Miller Metcalfe Surveyors were helpful and prompt with their report and the price was right for me. I had to do everything via the internel because of my being abroad, but that didnt hinder their work at all, and I recieved my property survey via the internet too.
I would fully recommend Miller Metcalfe and have done so already, my friend has contacted them for her property survey too.
I was buying a flat in a block built only 8 years ago. I was in doubt whether it was worth getting a survey done especially since the flat is presumably still under NHBC warranty (not that that is worth much). I didn't want to spend £400 plus which is what I had been quoted elsewhere.
Miller Metcalfe could do the survey quicker and for a more reasonable price than the other surveyor I contacted. The survey seems very thorough and has given me all the information I need.
I would therefore recommend them. The only reason I haven't given 5 stars is that surveying a new-ish flat is possibly not that demanding - I couldn't say how well they would handle a bigger or older property.
I completed the information form online, and was contacted by Miller Metcalf straight away. The lady was very pleasant and explained the procedure. Within a week I had my survey done and received the report a couple of days later. I am very happy with the service I received, and it was at a very good price. Would recommend to anyone.
You want a good value survey that tells you how it is? I'd recommend Miller Metcalfe without hesitation. Prompt, efficient and not too severe on the pocket!
Purchased a homebuyer's report. Price seemed very competitive. Appointment to inspect was booked for the Friday and report received on Monday afternoon by email. Appeared very comprehensive and met my needs. Very satisfied.
I found Metcalfe Surveyors on the internet. The gentleman that I spoke to couldn't have been more helpful. The survey was done in no time and I had a very good and comprehensive report sent to me via email. The price was very competative. I would recommend them to anyone and I will certainly use them again if I have need of a good surveyor.
Excellent service when booking the survey. Surveyor contacted the vendor directly to arrange a suitable time. Survey was completed within a week of initial contact. Report arrived day after survey. Vendor indicated that surveyor was very professional and thorough.
Used this firm for our full survey and was very thorough and completed the report quickly. Unfortunately they were a bit slow respinding to some queries that I had after receiving the report but on the whole a very good report and good value for money.
I have previously used this firm and had no problem however this time this was not the case. The survey was completed on the day stated but I never received a call from the surveyor as promised, and as previously received, to summarize the survey.
I did receive a copy the report and I required clarification on 7 points so I tried to email the surveyor buy their address was not valid. I was advised to send my email into the office and I did receive a reply through one of the typists but it only partially answered half the questions and ignored the rest. When I emailed back again they reply was 'I have no further comment to make' and no further emails have been replied to.
There were some basic errors made such as omitting an outhouse (attached to the property) completely from the report when it is in fact causing an issue and stating that a patio door was very difficult to open - This was opened with ease when the bolt was undone!
Overall, I very annoyed with the attitude of the surveyor and have no confidence in the report I have received. To simply refuse to reply to questions is plain rude and certainly not good customer service.
This will be the last time I will use Miller Metcalfe.
Very professional in their approach and very quick in conducting the survey and providing the report. The report was very comprehnsive and exactly what I needed for me to make an informed decision on my purchase.
I would definately recommend Miller Metcalfe to friends and family and will, if required use them again!
Having used Miller Metcalfe Surveyors on more than one occasion I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any prospective customer. They were efficient, polite, professional and competitively priced and provided excellent advice on the type of survey required
Good service from Miller Mefcalfe, especially from the team in the office when dealing with my payment - I'd forgotten to keep the money in my current account and they kindly let me know when the charge was made so I could ensure funds were there and avoid my overdraft.
Miller Metcalfe provided a very good overview of the surveys on offer and competitively priced. The attending Surveyor was efficient and polite and identified some good points.
The final report was quickly sent.
All in all an exemplary service.
The surveyor contacted me within 30 minutes of our initial approach and was in the house, as agreed, within 3 days. Report should have come back in 2 weeks but in fact was available within 5 days. The report clearly showed a thorough review and thoughtful recommendations. As a result, we went ahead and bought the house with confidence and are now putting in place all of his recommendations.
Would definitely use this firm again.
I couldn't ask for more, from the first phone call to completed report, with as much help as I required along the way.
I look forward to using your surveyors again and I already recommend Miller Metcalfe to friends.
Keep up the good service and thank you.
I found The Miller Metcalf team to be very professional and ever so inexpensive for a full structural survey; I was however somewhat disappointed that after asking for the surveyor to phone me with a brief report of his / her findings my request was seemingly ignored. I would however use Miller Metcalf again in this respect.
