“The survey report was thorough and helpful in highlighting areas of concern, and in grading these in terms of how quickly they will need to be dealt with.”


Sue Turner – Home Buyer Survey

“I would have no hesitation to recommend Iain from PA Surveyors. I contacted a number of surveyors for a survey on a property I was buying. Their price was competitive and I had a lengthy conversation on the telephone with the surveyor which made up my mind to use them as opposed to the others. After receiving the survey they were always available to answer any questions I had. I would have no hesitation in recommending PA Surveyors.”


Nathalie Marron – Survey

“Very efficient and did the survey at very short notice. After consultation there were various types of service that could be offered and they helped me find the best one for me. Absolutely brilliant and would recommend.”


Jo Harvey – Building Survey X2 Purchases

“I have been really impressed with the service PA Surveyors have provided. Iain Plant has carried out two full surveys for me. He provides incredibly detailed investigations in an ‘easy to read’ form within a quick time frame. Iain is happy to discuss his findings and fully explain solutions and associated costs (estimations) to any arising issues. His approach is personable and easily understood by a lay person! I highly recommend Iain Plant and PA Surveyors. Thank you!”


Paul Cooney – Building Survey

“Their report was incredible and one of the most detailed surveys I have ever seen. The service from first contact to receiving the report was perfect under VERY difficult circumstances. Thank you very much.”


Directors of Kemp Court  – Damp Survey

“As directors of the residents’ company which owns Kemp Court we were keen to check on concerns regarding damp in some of the flats to ensure that there were no maintenance issues. Iain was very thorough and helpful, setting our minds at rest whilst noting minor issues that could be addressed in the coming years. He was polite and caring towards all the residents that he met and sensitive but clear as to issues related to condensation which were of their own making. We would recommend him to anyone looking for such a survey.”


Ali Dean – Survey

“I had a walk around survey with Iain and found his service to be extremely beneficial in helping me purchase a flat. He gave me a comprehensive explanation of any issues that he had flagged and also provided me with suggestions to remedy the problems in the future. His survey was thorough and his report was in depth but not overwhelming in any way. I was very pleased with the service and will recommend him and look to use PA Surveyors again in the future.”


Claudia Boccone – Survey

“Came recommended by multiple people. Very thorough and reasonably priced. Took time out to talk me through the survey and explained in depth any issues. Would definitely recommend.”


Juliette Kendall – Home Buyer Survey & Valuation

“Iain was recommended to me and rightly so, he was very thorough with his survey and took the time to go through in great depth the issues with the property. He offered solutions to problems and also gave me realistic levels of the severity of the issues, whether they were deal breakers or not. I would absolutely recommend him and use him again myself, in the future. He’s also very reasonably priced too.”


Andy Zentner – Home Buyer Survey & Valuation

“I would not hesitate to recommend PA Surveyors to anyone looking to buy or sell and get a professional report produced with the best possible customer service too. Iain completed a valuation for the sale of our flat and a homebuyer report for our house purchase. He made himself fully available for any questions and has been extremely diligent and detailed in his reporting. The information is presented clearly and in plain English with honest and professional opinion which provides clear guidance and direction. The fees are also very competitive.”


Alex Kazemi – Tailored Survey

“I was looking for a service that would give me all the benefits of a full structural survey at an affordable price and to be able to see issues first hand, to give me an indication on the level of work required prior to purchasing the property.

Iain offered a walk round survey, which gave me the opportunity to go over his comprehensive findings and for me to ask any questions I had on the issues he found. It was very informative, eye opening and Iain was extremely professional, explaining everything a long the way. It certainly opened my eyes up and highlighted what to look for if I ever look at purchasing a property again.

Following on from the survey, I decided to get a high level report with breakdown on the major issues that required work, putting value against the works. This was invaluable and helped getting a significant reduction in the sale price! I would highly recommend the service Iain has to offer.

I would not hesitate in using Iain again, or recommending him to anyone that requires a structural survey on a property.”


Emma Craciun – Survey

“Had a walk around survey with Iain and it was most helpful and informative. Would recommend.”


J Clean – Building Survey

“Full survey on a property we are intending to purchase – the service was excellent, Iain was professional and friendly and carried out a first class job, we were informed of all the areas in a detailed manner and gave us full transparency on the building.

We will definitely be instructing for future work for help and advice.

Thanks again”


Alexandra Hunter – Survey

“Iain was extremely professional and informative. I felt I was being sold the correct survey for my needs. His walk round with me was beyond helpful and told to me in ‘laymans’ terms. Would not hesitate to recommend Iain. Very refreshing to meet someone who is passionate and professional.”


Stephen Watson – Building Surveys & Project Management

“We have used Iain Plant for a number of years and found him to be an excellent surveyor and will truly be able to assist with your property needs. He undertook an inspection of our proposed purchase and later prepared drawings for our rear extension and managed the project. Would not use any other surveyor and we certainly recommend!”


Harriet Chavasse – Survey

“Can’t recommend Iain Plant highly enough. He listened carefully to our particular requirements for the type of survey needed on our property, and came back with a number of options to adequately suit our needs.

You feel like they aren’t just trying to up-sell you the most comprehensive survey going – rather they are happy to provide you with the right service for you. And in our case that was highly appreciated! The survey itself was incredibly thorough, and Iain was happy to offer his personal alongside professional opinion, which was incredibly valuable to us.

Will certainly be approaching Iain for any further assistance in the future! Thanks!”


Will Chamberlain-Webber – Building Survey

“Would highly recommend, they were fast, thorough and reliable. Iain who carried out my survey couldn’t have been more helpful. Lots of detailed pictures and helpful advice. I even had two lengthy telephone calls with Iain so I was able to have a full understanding of the report. Wouldn’t consider using anyone else for my next survey.”


Jeremy Brown – Building Survey

“I employed the services of Iain Plant to do the survey on my house during the buying process. Had a very detailed meeting at the office, very thorough, helpful and friendly Surveyor. He did a full survey on the property, including detailed report and huge collection of photos pointing out all the aspects of the property. This was great for me knowing that all the information I needed to make the buying decision was available. Iain made sure to contact me after with several calls giving me advice about future developments and maintenance. Very happy with the service and I would highly recommend this firm and Iain.”


Philip Priddle – Commercial Shop Lease Survey

“Very quick, efficient and professional service. Would highly recommend them.”


Diane Willis – Enfranchisement Freehold Purchase Valuation

“We (leaseholders of two separate flats) hired Iain to negotiate with the freeholder’s agent for purchase of the freehold. It was a difficult and lengthy negotiation – unlike the other party, Iain was professional at all times and we’ve landed with an excellent purchase price as the outcome. I’d definitely use again.”
