This was the first time we had to request a survey, and after more than a few negative comments from friends re surveys, it was a relief to receive a detailed and comprehensive report, with lots of photos, backed up by a phone call to talk us through the most salient issues. Communication from the start was excellent, and queries received an immediate response. Very friendly approach. Highly recommended. (Reviewed July 2021)
Laura and Mal were very diligent, professional and helpful. They definitely went the extra mile to give me the feedback I needed in the timeframe I required. I particularly appreciated them getting back to me with comprehensive initial feedback over the phone later in the same day as the survey.
I would be very happy to use them again in the future. (Reviewed March 2021)
Brilliant service, fast efficient and helpful. Very approachable and friendly and explained everything clearly and in detail. Great at answering lots of questions and providing good advice. I will definitely recommend them to friends and use them again if we need to. Money well spent. (Reviewed November 2020)
The service was fast and incredibly detailed. With little to no experience in this field the phone call describing the survey before receiving the written document was very detailed and to a standard I could understand to the fullest. I would recommend Castle More to anyone buying a house or even requiring a survey. (Reviewed October 2020)

From the first call until the written report , our experience was very positive . Laura and Mal had a very professional but approachable attitude . The report was in language that we understood and in a good format to work through . It outlined current issues and future action to prevent other issues arising. We are very satisfied customers/clients. (Reviewed July 2020)
We are thinking of purchasing an old house and renovating it. We have never done anything like this before! We asked Castlemore for a level 3 buildings survey. We have been unbelievably impressed with the standard of service we have received. The company is brilliant at listening to our renovation ideas and our concerns about the property we are wanting to purchase. Castlemore took everything into consideration when surveying the property. After their survey, we had a phone call going over some of their findings and then they issued a report which was incredibly detailed and with photos. It was extremely helpful in knowing exactly which issues we needed to address when buying the property. This report has potential saved us thousands. (Reviewed July 2020)
Survey was carried out ahead of the promised date, and we were contacted the same day with a verbal report. The full written report was emailed 3 days later. Very impressed with the professional and courteous manner of Laura and Mal. (Reviewed July 2020)
Couldn't have asked for better. I had an honest opinion on a property that I had set my heart on. The property had so much work needing to be done and if I hadn't gone ahead with a survey I would have been financially way out of pocket. Please please make sure you have a survey done before purchasing a property that you think is just minor repair. I can't thank Castlemore enough for their honest and expert advice. Thank you both so much (Reviewed July 2020)
Castlemore provided a snagging survey on a newly built house extension. This identified serious issues with the roof which needed to be redone. Castlemore (Mal Thomas) arranged quotes for the work and held a watching brief while the rework was completed. He then arranged final sign-off by the Building Inspector. Mal Thomas also prepared an expert witness statement to support our action to recover our costs from the builder. We have found Castlemore very professional, friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

We instructed Castlemore to conduct a full building survey on a property we were looking to purchase. We obtained a number of quotes from various different surveyors in the area and Castlemore were competitively priced, easy to get hold of and a pleasure to deal with.
Having spoken with Castlemore on 22/08/19, I received a call from Laura on the afternoon of 23/08/19 to confirm the survey had already been completed. Perfect considering we were looking to turn the sale around as quickly as possible. Laura was a pleasure to speak to and gave me some very useful information regarding her findings there and then on the telephone.
I have now received the full report and it is extremely detailed and comprehensive. I would have no hesitation in recommending Castlemore.

This is the second time we have used Castlemore for a house survey (level 3) and we have been unbelievably impressed with the standard of service we have received. The company is brilliant at listening to what you have concerns about regarding a property purchase and making sure these are looked into when surveying the property (even happy to take requests that are more 'bespoke' and individual to our purchasing circumstances). The surveying and report given were incredibly detailed and helpful in knowing exactly which issues we needed to address when buying the property. We have benefitted hugely from meeting with the surveyor in person at the property to have a "show and talk" through everything he found - absolutely invaluable. We will certainly be recommending their services - 10/10! (Reviewed June 2019)
The team at Castlemore were professional and helpful at every stage of our engagement with them from the first contact to the final invoice. They were friendly and spoke to us clearly and made it easy to understand in lay terms what they were finding and recommending - huge peace of mind. I would not hesitate to use them again. Thank you to you all. (Reviewed December 2018)
