Client Testimonials

Following a mortgage valuation report on a property, we were informed by the surveyor that there were signs of structural movement on the property and the mortgage lender required a structural report to be carried out on the property. We contacted Abbott Holliday by email and received a quick response which answered all my queries, confirming the cost of the report, what the report included and the qualifications of the individuals carrying out the investigation. They were able to carry out the inspection within a couple of days and at a time that was convenient for our tenant. Following the inspection, they provided me with an update on the initial findings of the inspection and the full report was produced and sent to me the next day. I would highly recommend Abbott Holliday. M H
