    “Terry wrote a very clear damp and timber report and explained all the issues to me patiently and thoroughly (I’m a first-time buyer and am learning about a lot of the issues for the first time). The report was also completed extremely quickly. Faultless service. Terry was very friendly and professional and I wouldn’t hesitate to warmly recommend him. And we really appreciated having a truly independent assessment from someone who wasn’t also trying to sell us anything!”
