It was a pleasure to have Pro -Spec conduct an inspection of the property. The inspection was efficient and comprehensive with the added confidence that you were dealing with surveyors who had been in the building trade for many years. The report was easily understood and backed up by further advice and explanations. I have no hesitation in recommending them to both buyers and sellers.
