We were extremely happy with Ruth’s services. We have ended up buying a holiday house sight unseen, which is something I never thought we would do - but such was the thoroughness of Ruth’s building survey and the confidence we had in her abilities, it was a decision we were very comfortable making. Ruth is lovely to deal with, she is down-to-earth, kind, efficient, and offers fantastic customer service, which can be a rare thing these days. She was able to fit our inspection in to her busy schedule, assessed the diagnostics report, took videos of the property, and completed her own report for us in a few days. We couldn’t recommend her highly enough. Thank you Ruth!

I first contacted Ruth back in January 2015 with a view to converting my old cellar into a habitable area/cinema room. The project was going to be a major one and had been in the planning for many years. The cellar in question was only accessible from the front of the property and was directly located below the ground floor of the property, so a staircase would have to be built leading down from the ground floor (kitchen/living room). Ruth recommended a local French builder called Jean-Jacques to carry out the building work (and a superb one he was too). She project managed from start to finish, including liaising with the town hall with regards to planning permission all the way through to completion of the project, which took a lot of pressure off me. She suggested installing a concrete beam and block floor, raised off the floor and installing a drainage system underneath from all sides of the room. The property is butted into the side of a hill and the cellar is subterranean. ...

We were buying a property in France unseen as a holiday home and we asked the estate agent for contacts of a surveyor and they provided Ruth's details. From the first instance of contacting Ruth she responded promptly. Ruth visited the property within a week of instruction. She provided us with a summary report within 48 hours of her visit and then the full report a few days later together with some videos and photos of the property. We really can't recommend Ruth enough as she gave us the peace of mind we needed to purchase a property that we have not seen due to the pandemic and been unable to visit France.
