Survey saved client a lot of money
I called 1stAssociated as I had seen a detached property I was interested in which also formed a kennel and cattery business although my plan was to bulldoze the kennels. The garage which was 20ft or so away from the property appeared to be riddled with woodworm and I was concerned this had gone into the house. The downstairs floors were bouncy and I also wanted this checked out.
I met the surveyor at the property who recommended we have a section of the floor opened up so he could see what was going on underneath. The floor was opened up in the lounge and dining room and although the surveyor saw no clear signs of woodworm he advised as the property was on a sloping sight it was highly likely there was dampness there. The surveyor also found problems with the main pitched roof and flat roofs, movement and external joinery concerns.
Without this survey I probably would have bought the property and I would like to thank the surveyor for saving me a lot of money.

Listed Building Specialist Surveys
The property we instructed you to survey was a Grade ll listed thatched farmhouse built in 1670 so we wanted a full building survey. On making our initial enquiry we were promptly sent an example survey of a listed building and advised if we instructed then the surveyor that would carry out the survey would be a listed building specialist which gave us confidence.
We were given the option to meet the surveyor at the property but as we live in London and the property was in Bedfordshire we were unable to make it but were able to speak with the surveyor by phone which was great. The report was really good and made an interesting read although due to the findings of the survey such as the thatch nearing the end of its life, woodworm problems and the tiled roof needing to be re-tiled and also finding out about proposed developments on the land surrounding the house we came to the decision to pull out of the purchase.
We would like to thank all involved and would not hesitate in recommending you to friends and family in the future.

Clear, detailed Building Surveys
This is the second property we have had surveyed with you and are more than happy with everything the surveyor has done.

Meeting Surveyor at property was invaluable
I was recommended to 1stAssociated by my nephew who has used them previously. 1stAssociated arranged everything swiftly and we were even able to meet the surveyor at the property to discuss issues face to face which was invaluable as the property was in a dilpaidated state.
We received a detailed report which we found easy to understand and are pleased to say we will be going ahead with the purchase of the property. I have now recommended 1stAssociated on to my brother.
Thank you again to all involved.

Great Building Survey Service
I booked a survey with 1stAssociated on a house we were looking at buying to rent out. The survey was great and meeting the surveyor at the property was very useful. I think it is always nice to see face to face who you are dealing with!
Due to a combination of reasons we are not proceeding with the purchase of the property and are now considering looking at buying a couple of flats as feel the return on them would be greater.
Once we find something we will not hesitate in using 1stAssociated again.
Mr R, Bedford, Bedfordshire
Meeting the Surveyor at the survey was great
We instructed 1stAssociated to survey a Potton Timber Frame Construction for us. We were very happy with the service we received.
It was great to be able to meet the surveyor at the property but due to a combination of issues the surveyor highlighted and other things we will not be going ahead with the purchase.
We are not actively looking for another property at present but would not hesitate in using 1stAssociated should we need a surveyor in the future.

Fast Response Schedules of Condition
A great Schedule of Condition from 1stAssociated which also included a free Property Report/Negotiations Document.
Our lease started on the day of the survey.
Thank you to everyone involved

Comprehensive Building Surveys
On contacting 1stAssociated the survey was arranged quickly and efficiently.
The report we received was very detailed and allowed us to negotiate on the pub. In fact we even had a comment from our solicitor saying how impressed he was with the comprehensive content.
Thank you to everyone involved for their help.
Mr C, Flitton, Bedfordshire
Brilliant Building Surveys
I would definitely recommend 1stAssociated to friends and family.
The survey was brilliant, very detailed and we received excellent service from all involved from start to finish. Access to the garage could not be obtained but the surveyor even said he would come back to look at this once access is sorted.
Thank you to all involved!

Impressive Building Surveys with solutions and anticipated costs
1stAssociated surveyed another property for us and we were so impressed with them we instructed them to survey this Grade ll listed part thatched property.
Once again meeting the surveyor at the property was so useful and although we understand we are taking on a long term project to restore the building properly the survey has given us a clear picture of what needs doing and approximate costs.
Thank you once again!
Miss A, Biggleswade, Bedfordshire
Very detailed Building Surveys
We instructed 1stAssociated to survey this detached property for us which also had a 3 bedroom annexe. The property had not been very well maintained but we were looking at making lots of changes to the property.
We met the very knowledgeable surveyor at the property who gave us lots of good advice and we received a very detailed report a few days later.
Due to some of the changes we wanted to make to the property not being possible we have decided not to proceed with the purchase but would like to thank 1stAssociated for a great survey.
Mr U, Cranfield, Bedfordshire
Saving money with a Building Survey
We instructed 1stAssociated to survey this modern semi-detached property. The work they have done for us has been fantastic.
As well as visiting the property and producing the report we have also had a phone conversation with our surveyor to discuss certain issues. The issues the survey highlighted we have raised with the estate agent and we are currently waiting for a response from the vendor via the agent. We have asked the agent to establish whether some of our surveyors recommendations have been tried and have also asked whether the vendors would consider carrying out the work recommended and also reduce the price of the property.
We are still very excited about this property and hope to have some good news soon.
Mrs B, Bedford, Bedfordshire
Building Surveys with more detail than we ever expected
We have just met the surveyor at the property we are looking at buying. The surveyor was brilliant, very thorough. He addressed all of our issues such as the internal cracking and gave us more detail overall than we ever expected.
We are so pleased we went for a full survey and not a Homebuyers Report as offered by other surveyors and will be going ahead and buying the property.
Thank you for all you have done .
Mr J, Houghton Regis, Bedfordshire
Efficient Building Surveys
I booked this survey on behalf of my parents. The service on booking was very efficient and we received a very detailed report from them.
There were a few issues with the property such as cracking and as my parents originally wanted a semi and this was a terrace they have decided not to purchase this property but to continue looking for a semi.
We will defintely be contacting 1stAssociated to survey for us again as soon as a suitable property is found.
Mr S, Bedford, Bedfordshire
Detailed Building Surveys
We instructed 1stAssociated to survey this lovely old property for us. The report was very detailed but on reading through and taking onboard everything the surveyor has said we have decided at our stage of life we do not want a property that requires a lot of our time and money.
We have since found a newer property in the same area and as we were so happy with the last report we have instructed 1stAssociated to survey this for us.

High standard Building Surveys
This is the 2nd survey we have asked 1stAssociated to do for us as we were so happy with the standard of the first report.
This time it is a modern detached property. Once again we received a very thorough detailed report which highlighted some concerns with cracking but we have taken the surveyors advice regarding the existing owners contacting their insurance company and we are pleased to say we will be going ahead with the purchase.
Mrs C, Dunstable, Bedfordshire
Impressive Building Surveys
Myself and my partner were very impressed with the survey carried out by 1stAssociated. Initially the only concerns we had were some issues with the chimney and the wood burner but problems were found with the roof, valley gutter, chimney and also dampness so we have decided against purchasing this property.
We are due to view a bungalow and if things move forward with that we will definitely be contacting 1stAssociated to survey for us.
Ms H, Bromham, Bedfordshire
Meeting the Building Surveyor at the property was very useful
We are moving from Cheshire for my wifes job in London and found this property close to the train station. We instructed 1stAssociated to survey and we were offered the chance to meet the surveyor at the property which we agreed to do and found to be very useful.
We had concerns regarding the conservatory and also wanted to know if it would be possible to knock down an internal wall to open up the kitchen. The surveyor answered all of our questions and more and we received a very detailed report.
We are pleased to say we are buying the property and would like to say we the service we received has been really good thank you
Mr C, Harlington, Bedfordshire
Detailed Building Surveys
I am selling my fathers property and I am aware there are issues with the house but I wanted to understand the problems better to hopefully help with the sale.
I booked a survey with 1stAssociated and met the surveyor at the property which I found to be extremely useful. The very detailed report I received has been very helpful, everything within the report was very well explained and I am sure this will help me to secure a sale on the property moving forward.
Thank you to all involved.
Mrs B, Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire

Building Surveys identify property issues
1stAssociated surveyed a Grade ll listed property for me. Being able to meet the surveyor at the property was brilliant as he was so knowledgeable.
Unfortunately the property had issues with dampness and movement and was a high-risk purchase so I will not be buying the property but without this survey I would never have known.
Thank you to all involved
Mrs F, Luton, Bedfordshire
Recommended Building Surveyors
I was asked if possible to meet the surveyor at the property which was very useful as he advised us of certain issues and how to resolve them.
The report was very detailed and we are pleased to say we will be completing very soon on the property.
We would definitely recommend 1stAssociated to any friends or family who need a surveyor in the future
Mr N, Luton, Bedfordshire
Great Building Survey Service
I instructed 1stAssociated to survey for me and received a very detailed report. As I was unable to meet the surveyor at the property on the day of the survey as offered I had a very helpful call with the surveyor after I had read through the report. I am going ahead with the purchase but I am going to try and renegotiate slightly on the price based on the surveyors findings (although no major problems were found).
A great service and would definitely recommend them on.
Miss D, Biggleswade, Bedfordshire
