Lee demonstrated a high level of professionalism throughout the Level 3 survey. He was punctual, courteous, and attentive to detail, ensuring that no aspect of the property was overlooked. He utilized advanced tools and techniques to identify potential issues such as dampness, roofing problems, and safety hazards, providing us with accurate and actionable recommendations for addressing them. Overall, Lee delivered exceptional service as a Level 3 home surveyor. His professionalism, expertise, and attention to detail were instrumental in helping us make informed decisions about our property. We would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a reliable and knowledgeable surveyor for their property assessment needs.

South West Surveyors were a pleasure to deal with, with excellent customer service and ease of organising the survey. Lee was very helpful and produced a detailed, well written and informative report. Their services were recommended to me by a friend and I would happily do the same and recommend them to others!

Lee provided a fantastic service for us. His Level 3 survey of the property we were purchasing was thorough, and his findings were presented clearly and professionally. The follow-up call to talk through the report was really valuable as well, giving us a sanity check where we needed it, and really great advice on next steps for works, where we may be able to renegotiate on price, as well as some helpful costings for the suggested works. Highly recommended!

Straightforward and friendly to deal with. Open and honest. Explained in detail what I would get from the report and what I would or would not be able to infer from it, so I knew exactly what I was buying. The report itself is extensive and clear, with plenty of contextual illustrations and supporting photos to illustrate specific points of concern. The follow-up meeting with the surveyor to go through the report in detail was included in the cost, which I appreciated. Would recommend without hesitation.

I am very happy with the service provided. They communicated clearly and timely, the report was comprehensive (went for RICS level 3 building survey), Lee went through the report with me via a Zoom call and explained all the details, clarifying everything I didn’t understand. This gave me confidence in my purchase and knew what potential follow up costs I might have. Definitely recommend!

Lee carried out a Level 2 survey for us on a 4 bedroom house in Stoke Gifford and I couldn't be happier! He listened to our requests (we had some things we'd identified ahead of time we wanted checked) and produced a really helpful report which identified risks and further recommendations clearly - everything was written in clear, easy to understand English (no jargon!) and he obviously takes pride in what he does.

As a result of this survey we had more investigations and eventually pulled out of the purchase. Lee and Domestic Surveys have saved us a considerable amount of money (and time) and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them in the future. We will be using them again once we've found another house.

I can't recommend South West Surveyors more highly. A number of friends recommended them to me and it was easy to see why. The initial enquiry and booking process was very easy - Martin always responded promptly and clearly - and the survey done by Lee Preston was extremely thorough. In fact, I used South West Surveyors twice. It was because of Lee's survey and follow up chat that I decided to not proceed with one purchase but was very confident in pursuing the second. I am now very happily settled in my new home thanks to Martin and Lee.

I have used this company for a couple of surveys while going through a first house buying service. They have been so professional, and for someone who is a novice they have been so patient and thorough. The surveys and the offered conversations to go through them have been invaluable. Would highly recommend!

Lee at Domestic Surveys has done two Level 3 surveys for us throughout our homebuying process and it's been worth every penny. The customer service team is prompt, helpful, and communicative. The survey reports are extremely thorough and detailed. Really appreciate how Lee was available to answer questions after and offer his professional insight on what is a very big purchase!

We were in the process of purchasing a three bed 60's property in Bristol and needed a survey to be completed.

After searching the local area for surveyors, we came across South West Surveyors who had some great reviews.

We made contact and were pleasantly surprised with the professionalism and knowledge of this company. They explained the different types of surveys available and what would be most suitable for this type of property, before allowing us to decide. We went for a Homebuyers Report.

Booking was seamless and they were able to liaise directly with the agent to arrange access to the property.

The report was in-depth and picked up several issues which we wouldn't have noticed. Lee was super helpful and followed up his report with a telephone consultation at no additional cost to go through the report with us and answer any questions we had. This not only allowed us to understand the issues in more detail, but also what sort of cost we would be looking at for each job and the work entailed.

Thanks to the report, we were able to renegotiate the purchase price of the property by several thousand pounds.

I would highly recommend South West Surveys as they are a professional, reliable, efficient and knowledgeable company who provide excellent service at a competitive price.

The interactions with Lee and Martin have been very pleasant and we will be using them again if we need to.

Highly recommended! My level 3 survey was carried out by Lee, the report was available within a couple of days and was very thorough. Lee was professional, friendly and extremely helpful during the follow up phone call. I pulled out of the sale due to a multitude of costly issues hidden beneath new paint and floor boards. I will definitely be using this service again when I find another suitable property.

Domestic surveys were great in explaining the whole process to us, as first time buyers it was great to get an understanding of what was involved. Lee gave a detailed and informative survey which was easy to understand. Lee also took the time to go through a few bits we were unsure about. We’re very glad we used got the survey and were able to use it to negotiate money off the house price.

We were grateful for the support from Lee & Martin when surveying our first property. Unfortunately, the property fell through due to issues with the vendors paperwork, but we would definitely like to use Domestic Surveys again in the future as they provided a detailed and personal survey to us. Thank you!

Second time I have used this company.l to survey a prospective purchase. Martin is extremely prompt and will walk you through the options over the phone in great detail. They were quick to arrange a visit with the house owner and within a day or so Lee had the report ready in a new, and very layman friendly, format to send over. Followed up with a zoom call a few days after that to discuss it in more detail, I felt very confident about understanding the state of the house and any potential issues. Lee was incredibly thorough, knowledgeable and included rough estimates of costs, an overall general opinion about the property and some general advice on negotiation with the home owner. It was clear that Lee had politely questioned the home owner at the time, researched the area thoroughly and was able to provide a small list of objective pros and cons about the property and the location.
Whilst the level 3 survey is not cheap, it's affordable and should be a no brainer when considering a purchase - I expect to save 10x the cost of the survey when renegotiating.

Martin from Domestic Survey recommended Lee as surveyor to inspect an old victorian propriety.

I would strongly recommend Lee to whoever is looking for a real professional surveyor.

The report he produced highlighted every single detail about the propriety, with pictures that explained what the issues were and what they were related to.

We also had a chance to speak with him on 1 hour zoom call which has been one of the most instructive call I had in ages. He took the time to go through everything that was explained in the report, as well as giving us recommendations regarding what to look for in a propriety.

In the end the house that was surveyed resulted to have structural issues and we won’t go ahead with the purchase, but I am left with an incredibly positive feeling knowing how much I learned and that without Lee we wouldn’t be able to dodge the bullet.

I will contact Lee for my next survey without even thinking about it.

Thanks again Martin and Lee!
