What a fantastic company!! Would highly recommend and use again. Bruce provided the promised detailed report and took the time to thoroughly discuss the survey and raise any concerns he had noted about the property. The discussion really added extra value as it gave even more insight. I will definitely be recommending domestic surveys! Thank you Bruce :)

Domestic Surveys was recommended to me by a colleague as I was advised they would be thorough and provide a detailed report. I was not disappointed! Martin arranged for a survey to be conducted within good time and Bruce provided the promised detailed report and took the time to thoroughly discuss the survey and raise any concerns he had noted about the property. The discussion really added extra value as it gave even more insight. I will definitely be recommending domestic surveys!

We had a great experience with Domestic Surveys. Martin was so helpful in arranging everything, very approachable & extremely efficient. Bruce, our surveyor, was very thorough and took the time to explore all our areas of concern. The follow up phone call after the survey to accompany the report was extremely helpful in explaining everything he'd found and gave us peace of mind. Would definitely recommend.

Received a fantastic service from start to finish. Domestic Surveys was recommended by a friend and would definitely use them again and recommend to others.
I got a number of quotes for a building survey and Domestic Surveys was very competitive. More than that though the service has been great; everyone I have spoken to has been clear and concise, responses are quick and detailed. No question is too big, small or ‘stupid’ which is exactly what I wanted as a first time buyer having never gone through this process before.
Bruce carried out my survey and produced a comprehensive report within 24 hours. The report was as easy to understand as possible (given the subject matter) and then I had a follow up call with him to go through the report so I could ask any remaining questions I had. Bruce really put my mind at rest about the property I am purchasing.

Domestic surveys was recommended to us by a friend and we are really glad to have used their service. Booking our survey was very straight forward, with Martin replying promptly to emails and phone calls. Bruce then carried out our survey and even met with us straight afterwards to go through the main points. The very thorough report then came through the next day, with a follow up Skype call. It was really helpful talking things through, especially getting an idea of what we might consider renegotiating the price about and a rough estimate of cost. Thanks heaps for an awesome service, will definitely be recommending you ????

Bruce has recently carried out a full buildings survey on our property. It is our first purchase and we are over the moon with his service. He visited the property within the week, was always contactable with swift replies and he had the survey back to us by the next evening. Furthermore skype'd us to discuss the property on the weekend. I cannot recommended the company enough. We will always use Bruce for any furthermore work we need doing. Every detail was covered thoroughly and any questions we had answered. Worth every penny!! Kind regards Rosa and Craig

This a review for a Building Survey completed by Bruce Marfell.

I can high recommend his services. The survey was easily arranged and completed with the minimal amount of input from myself other than handing over the essential details of the property. The report was extremely thorough, well written and easy to understand. Just as valuable I found was a follow up Skype conversation I was offered where I was able to chat to Bruce about all the questions I had regarding the property and the findings of the survey. I found Bruce to be very knowledgeable, provided a great service and many useful pieces of advice. I am 100% sure this report is essential when buying a property rather than a standard homebuyer's report and at the price charged it is also extremely good value for money.

Many thanks.

Bruce completed a full survey for me recently. The survey was arranged very quickly and the report produced within a couple of days. I then met with him to go through the relevant points raised. Bruce was extremely helpful in prioritising the work needed and answered all questions professionally and knowledgably. This was an amazing service and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Bruce to anyone in the future. On his advice I asked for a reduction in the property price and obtained a good reduction. Thanks also to Jan Scrine who was helpful and patient throughout, and promptly answered my email queries.

We had a fantastic experience from start to finish. Martin arranged everything very quickly - he knew we were working to a tight timeframe and responded promptly over the weekend and even called us on a Sunday evening to arrange everything. That's dedication! Bruce's surveying was extremely thorough. He offered to meet us at the property to discuss the key findings and sent us the written report within 48 hours - it was very detailed and clearly explained and he was happy to talk it through for further clarification. As first time buyers all the support and guidance we received from Martin and Bruce was unbelievably helpful and made the process simple. We wouldn't hesitate to use Domestic Surveys again and would definitely recommend to others. Competitive pricing too!

We have used Domestic surveys twice this year. The first was to arrange a party wall agreement. Jon was brilliant getting things arranged super quickly when we were informed of our neighbours plans and Bruce was very thorough throughout.
We were so impressed with their professionalism that we recently asked Bruce to survey a property we were planning to buy. His report was brilliant - extremely thorough and easy to understand and was invaluable when asking our builder to give us estimates. We would highly recommend them and no doubt will use again in the future. Thanks Bruce and your team!

This is the first time we have used Domestic Surveys after a recommendation from a friend.
Our experience has been extremely positive from start to finish.
Bruce is obviously a very experienced surveyor and this came across in the report and the follow up call to discuss the report.
The report was extremely thorough and he highlighted the problem areas we should be looking at and also which were a priority.
All in all we felt very assured by Bruce and I would not hesitate to use both the company and Bruce again.
I would highly recommend them to my friends and anyone looking to receive a great service and thorough survey.

This the second time we've used Domestic Surveys (Bruce Marfell specifically). Both times Bruce has impressed us with his detailed, exhaustive approach. The first time, he discovered such a shocking list of issues with a property that we pulled out of our purchase, saving us a fortune in remedial work. The most recent survey was again very thorough. He highlighted a few issues that we have used to negotiate on price, but essentially found the property to be good and solid, and we are confident that his judgement is solid too. He cares about the work, and he looks out for his clients' interests, so I heartily recommend him and Domestic Surveys.

A professional and efficient operation - from first contact to having a comprehensive and detailed report in my hands was 10 days. And at what I considered a very reasonable price, rather lower than what I was expecting.

The individual surveyor, Bruce Marfell, has also been professional and efficient, answering followup questions from my self and my solicitor quickly and efficiently at no addional cost.

Thoroughly recommended if you want a detailed property survey.

Our experience with Domestic Surveys has been positive from start to finish. Jan dealt with our enquiries in a timely and friendly manner, and with patience when we were messed around on dates by our vendor. Bruce carried out a very thorough survey and detailed report, including numerous photos. It was all pulled together quickly for us and the face to face chat was very helpful in giving us context and reassurance. Bruce has also made it clear that we can go back to him if we have further queries, which is useful for us as inexperienced first-time buyers. We'd definitely recommend.

Very professional work done in a very efficient manner. Bruce spotted all the relevant issues in the property we were about to purchase .

He elegantly hinted at some major problems we should focus our attention to.

Some on to rely on that we'd definitely recommend and use in the future.
