What our clients say about us
We wanted to improve the look of access to our property, we did not want the hassle of dealing with builders and wanted planning permission approved. For these reasons we wanted a professional chartered surveyor to make the process seamless.
Chescoe were quick to respond to the challenge, was reassuring from the outset, provided technical drawings that were in keeping with the property style, and which were accepted by states planning on first submission, despite being told that we not get permission from the planning department. Nigel was onsite frequently, removing all the usual hassle of dealing with builders and associated trades and providing reassurance prior to any payments being made, proving his value at every stage in the process.
We had a large garden and wanted to divide the plot and build a new house as an investment. After we contacted Nigel he helped us to develop a lovely scheme and organised the planning application and the building regulations detailed drawings and specifications for the building license..
We wanted to do a self-build and so his technical knowledge was really useful and he explained the processes really well and is very approachable.
The house is now complete and looks fantastic.
I was recommended Company name Surveyors by a friend and I wasn’t disappointed.
From the outset Nigel was efficient, professional and calm in all of my dealings with him.
He handled the technical side of a large insurance claim with ease
He drew up a master schedule of works and arranged planning and building control liaison with minimal disruption.
He also went out to tender, ratified the tender with all contractors appointed a main contractor and scheduled others in to complete their part of the works.
Nigel was available for site meetings at all times.
He even managed to communicate at all levels to the client, contractors and insurance claim handler and insurance assessor in ways we could all understand. There was never any ambiguity or questions left unanswered.
I always felt comforted that Nigel was on my side and representing my best interests.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him for this kind of work.
