James Ford

Honestly, an outstanding firm that you can really trust. House buying is never easy, however the Blaker Collins team really do make it easier.

They provided a comprehensive building survey service, with roof inspection. The report itself was extremely thorough, but what really made it a great service was the communication after the survey and delivery of report. Helping us to fully understand the details and recommendations.

We were managed by Gavin, who I have no hesitation in recommending. I know his team were key to the overall delivery of our service too, which was excellent.

Gavin compiled a comprehensive report which highlighted all the areas that needed our attention. It was well-written, easy to read and thorough. Following the report, he has been very responsive, patient and helpful with all our questions, helping us greatly during the buying process. I would recommend Blaker Collins to anyone seeking great service.

Amanda Severn

After getting a number of quotes I found Blaker Collins to be competitively priced. Sophie Blaker has been incredibly helpful, friendly and professional. She called me before the survey to discuss what type of survey would best suit my needs. After completing the survey she called me to give me an overview of how things went and then quickly followed that up with an extremely clear and thorough report. I have no hesitation in recommending Blaker Collins.

We recently engaged Sophie, Gavin and the team to conduct a full structural survey for a house purchase. They were meticulously thorough and professional throughout. The final report was particularly comprehensive, helping to guide our interpretation of often complex issues in a historic building by providing 100s of photos. They were on hand and responsive when we had follow-on questions to help prioritise matters that needed addressing through our solicitors. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. A real find.

AnnieC 08/02/22

Very professional but also very calm and kind advice. My house purchase was not subject to a mortgage so this was a first for me to source my own House Survey. Sophie was very approachable and explained things clearly and in a Jargon free way without being condescending. She kept me updated throughout. I recommend this company for home surveys.

Alice 10/02/22

I was in contact with both Sophie and Gavin - I found them both to be extremely helpful and efficient. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Blaker Collins again and would recommend them to anyone looking for a homebuyers survey! Thank you both!

Very professional, thorough and detailed report. No stone left unturned and Sophie was able to give us a verbal summary over the phone immediately to address main points. Very happy!
