I contacted Neil to have a survey carried out on a house we are purchasing after seeing the good reviews he had on Google. From the moment I contacted him, I felt he was friendly and professional, and he went ahead and booked in the survey promptly. The report Neil sent back (both email and hard copy) was very thorough, with clear photos and descriptions provided on any issues identified. He even rang us up and talked through the whole report for us. I would highly recommend his services.

Neil carried out a survey for my buyers when I sold my main residence 3 months ago; I was impressed with his quiet efficiency, and straight forward and friendly style. When I purchased a second house, I had no hesitation in asking him to carry out the survey on this property. Again, communication was swift and clear, the process efficient, and the report very straight forward and easy to understand.

Neil was recommended to us by some friends who have used his services a number of times so we instructed Neil to carried out a home condition survey for us and I cannot recommend him highly enough. The thorough report received so promptly was extremely easy to understand followed up by a call from Neil to talk through any queries we might have had. Neil was incredibly helpful and friendly throughout the whole process offering his knowledge on a range of questions we had following some findings from our solicitors searches. Will absolutely be using Neil again for any future purchases.

Neil was recommended to me by my solicitor. He carried out a home condition survey. His report was very detailed and he was very professional and extremely helpful. On the date of his first visit, damp work was being carried out and he was unable to check the building. He checked the work that was being done and checked out the firm that were carrying out the work. He then went back a second time to check the work and carry out the survey. I feel that he went the extra mile to help and advise me. Once I received the survey report, he talked me through it and offered his service for any further queries. I would recommend him to anyone needing help when purchasing a property. Thank you very much Neil.

Neil was recommended to us by our solicitors as the best person to conduct the survey on a property we were purchasing. Neil walked us through all the elements that he would undertake as part of the Home Condition Report and he was also very accommodating in arranging a speedy visit to the property to conduct the report. Neil completed and returned the report to us shortly after. The report was extremely detailed and comprehensive and included lots of photographs. The report covered everything and more that you would expect from a survey and the way that Neil presented the report was extremely easy to follow and a follow up call with Neil helped us to determine how and what with we needed to go back to our solicitors and our vendor on the areas that needed addressing. Thank you very Neil for all of your help and excellent support and we shall most certainly be recommending you to others.

Neil was recommended to me and I was very impressed by his warm, down-to-earth and professional approach. As a first-time buyer, I have found there can be a great deal of jargon in the property world, but Neil's Home Condition Survey was very thorough, clear and easy to understand. 
 
I also appreciated his honesty and advice in suggesting how I could care for the property and improve it when I gave him a call after receiving the Survey. Thanks to Neil, I feel confident in proceeding with the purchase and I would definitely recommend working with him.

Neil conducted a Home Condition Survey for me in a professional and understandable way. He brought with him to my house as well as the report a vast collection of photographs relating to my prospective purchase, which he discussed with me thoroughly, taking time to to explain any issues very clearly. I would have no hesitation in recommending him highly to anyone looking for a survey.

"I should like to thank Neil for producing an extremely helpful and comprehensive report so expeditiously and for the follow up recommendations and guidance he provided. His professionalism and swift response to my requests were very much appreciated. 
 
Mrs Wilson, Colchester" 
"I have know Neil on the networking circuit for several years and this is the first time I have used his services. A recommendation was given to me by the Estate Agent but I felt an independent surveyor was called for and Neil was my first choice. 
 
From the first contact the service was professional, courteous and efficient. The survey was very thorough and was followed with a very detailed written report with photographs and then a meeting where all the findings were explained in a clear, easy to understand manner with photographs showing the evidence of his findings. 
 
Having this report has made it easier to work with the solicitors on both sides and for our seller to see what needs to be done. 
 
I would highly recommend Neil for professionalism, thoroughness and peace of mind."

Mrs White, Colchester 
“My wife and I have been extremely satisfied with the service we have received from Neil. To the layman, the language of the surveyor can sometimes be confusing yet Neil completely demystified the whole process and presented his report in a refreshingly easily understandable format. 
 
We would not hesitate to recommend his services” February 24, 2012 
We have now used NBHI for the last 3 years and can confidently state that in that time we have found them to be efficient, honest, very reliable and great value for money. 
 
They have conducted themselves professionally at all times and have displayed first rate communication and administrative skills, also giving guidance and advice where necessary. 
 
We would gladly work with NBHI again and would have no hesitation in recommending them to other potential Clients as their detailed and personal attention to jobs set them apart from other similar companies.

Neil conducted a Home Condition Survey for us. He was thorough, efficient and professional. He presented his report which included numerous photographs in a clear and understandable manner, taking time to explain any issues and possible solutions.  
 
I would certainly recommend his services. Thank you once again. 
Neil provided an outstanding service. After conducting the survey Neil prepared a very detailed report. As I work in the city, I was most impressed that he also took the time in the evening to go through multiple photos and concern areas step by step explaining very clearly the issues, causes and solutions. 
 
The time Neil spent with us was extremely valuable. His enthusiasm, professionalism and knowledge means I would happily reference Neil's work to any prospect client. 
 
Thanks again Neil!

Neil's report was clear and done in a timely manner. The photos he took helped us understand the report and his visit to discuss what he found was very helpful. We would not hesitate to recommend Neil to anyone looking for a survey. June 13th, 2012 Suzanne & Adam 
Always helpful and very prompt, Neil has been carrying out EPCs for us since their introduction for rental property in October 2008.  
 
We have never used anyone else and would not consider doing so. Reasonably priced and always efficient and professional. Highly recommended. 
 
Kind regards,
