    Smooth fast service. Received the report the same day. Very detailed and comprehensive report helping us in purchasing a property. Very good price. Can not fault them in anyway.

  • Level 2 Survey

    James explained the process and really listened to my long list of enquiries. The survey and report was incredibly quick and I also had a comprehensive phone call to discuss main findings. Survey was incredibly thorough and enabled us to make an informed choice on whether to proceed with the purchase. Highly recommend to use James if you want a reliable expert commentary on the property and repairs needed. I certainly will be using James again. Especially knowing I’m in really good hands.

    The level 2 survey and valuation was carried out and reported on all in one day. Very impressed with how professional, quick and also friendly the whole service was. Highly recommend!

  • Survey for property purchase

    James replied promptly to my initial enquiry, the survey was carried out soon after and the very comprehensive but clear to understand report was produced very quickly, with an offer to explain anything I was unsure about. My only complaint is that it was an extremely long-winded process to arrange for the survey - back and forth with online forms and emails, and having to create an online account which I hope will never be used again as I don't move house every week! Maybe it was because I contacted James via the RICS. I hadn't thought to look for a surveyor through Checkatrade.

  • Survey a century-old mid-terrace house prior to purchase.

    10Verified Review

    From my initial experience on their website and on the phone, through the survey, which was scheduled within ten days and produced a very thorough homebuyer's survey report that evening, my interaction with Charlecote Estates was excellent. Slightly more expensive than other options in the area, but the enhanced customer service in comparison with other firms I spoke with made it worthwhile.
