  • Wooden forestry building

    Forestry Commission project

    "I want to take this opportunity to thank you for all efforts in delivering this project by the deadline and within the budget. Quite an achievement!
    "I was watching from the sidelines and had nothing but good reports from my colleagues. I was really pleased at how quickly you got started and produced your first drawings, how you understood our needs and how you adapted to changing situations.
    "This project has demonstrated clearly that we can use external help very effectively both in terms of cost and delivery.
    "It has been a pleasure working with you and I have no doubt we will be doing so again in the future."

  • Kitchen with bifold doors

    Snagging inspection

    We just wanted to thank you for doing such a thorough job on the survey. We have been over there today and gone through everything. The builders have been most accommodating - but without your snagging list I do not think we would have picked up in such perfect detail all the small imperfections (and the big ones!). So, we are most grateful for your attention to all things imperfect and will not hesitate to recommend Croft Surveyors to anyone who will listen.

  • Devon shingle beach

    Torquay building survey

    I know it has been a few weeks (hectic), but I thought I would update you.
    We did buy the property and on the basis of your very professional report we did get a discount for the work required on the roof, enough to cover the work required.
    So thank you very much for your survey, it was certainly worth having it done and if anyone wants a recommendation you can give them my name.

  • Row of terraced houses

    Comprehensive Report

    Just an email to say thank you for the very in depth and detailed survey you recently did for me. The whole report was written in a comprehensive but very understandable way and more thorough than I was expecting. I really appreciated the realistic feedback and even comments on improvements that whilst not necessary may help improve the character and therefore sale-ability of the property.

    Thanks again,

  • Modern house

    Building survey

    This is just a courtesy email to thank your for your most detailed and informative survey report. The report covered all the areas and really allowed us to understand all the key assessments in our potential purchase.

    Thank you once again for your assistance in this matter.
    Kind regards

    Happy client

    Many thanks for the survey – Hard copy received yesterday. I’m had a skim through it already, and everything is pretty much as you described and we’re quite happy! Thanks again for your time and we may well be in touch again in the future for other projects!
    Kind regards,
