Many thanks for this and your previous contacts email Gavin. I appreciate that this job was on a tight timeline, but you have delivered everything and been incredibly helpful and professional throughout. I really am very grateful.

Thank you so much Gavin - much appreciated. I think you've underplayed your role in what was ( and still is) a great team effort to support my clients on a very tight timescale. Thanks again look forward to the next one.

professionalism throughout this process and cannot thank you enough.

DB 25/01/2019

Thank you Gavin, that’s great. Your conclusions coincide with my own as regards the factors determining the value, both in and of the house itself (modernisation needed especially) and also the immediate environment. Thank you for your time Gavin, it was a pleasure to meet you.

John Hunt FCA Pursglove & Brown Chartered Accountants 9/03/15

I am writing on behalf of a client who wanted to work with a surveyor to help them manage a building project to thank Gavin for his pro-active management of the project to date. 

Gavin has liaised with the client and an architect to obtain outline planning permission - hence increasing the value of the site- and has come up with a number of options for developing the site once planning is approved. 

This is an ongoing assignment and the client is delighted with the pro-active, professional manner in which Gavin has navigated matters to date and has thanked me personally for the introduction. 

Mark Higgins, Chester 10/12/2014

Many thanks for your comprehensive report. Having investigated the rear WC based upon your report it is clearly an illegal construction as no plans ever went in. Many thanks again for your work and I can assure you that any other work required of this nature will be instructed to yourself. Regards, Mark

John Loney, Quality Solicitors Oliver & Co, Chester 28/02/2013
I am writing to thank you and to provide testimony for the excellent work which you have carried out recently for my client.

My client is seeking to raise additional finance against the existing equity in my clients property in a relatively short period of time and in order to satisfy the terms of the equity release provider, my client needed to either extend the existing term of the lease or purchase the freehold but had no idea which of those options to proceed with.

By undertaking the complicated and detailed assessment of the property valuation in a speedy manner and perhaps more importantly, in a way that enabled my client to easily understand the issues involved, my client is able to make an informed decision as to how to proceed.

I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to clients in future and indeed intend to continue to do so.

Thank you again for your assistance.

Tim Polding, Associate Director & Head of Commercial Department at Quality Solicitors Oliver & Co, Chester 24/06/2013

My Firm has no hesitation in recommending Gavin's services following our recent experience of instructing him to provide expert evidence on an urgent basis to support clients who wished to appeal a judgment handed down by the Residential Property Tribunal Service.
Gavin instantly appreciated what was required and the tight timescales involved, quickly gaining our clients' confidence with his friendly manner as well as his eye for detail and demonstrable knowledge.
I am sure that both the dispute resolution and property arms of our Commercial Department will look to utilise Gavin's skills and experience whenever the opportunity arises.

Hugh Greenhouse FRICS - Managing Director Of Homebuyer On Line
& Chartered Surveyor 12/03/2013

Gavin has been a valuable member of the Homebuyer Online surveying network, providing high quality survey reports within strict speed of service requirements. He has a detailed knowledge of property in his area of operation and his company Deesurveys is recommended.

Rob Brookfield, Grosvenor Designs 11/03/2013

I recently instructed Gavin Floyd of DEESURVEYS to carry out a full structural survey on a property which my son is in the process of buying and which is in need of complete renovation. Gavins extensive survey was detailed, informative and presented in a helpful, 'easy to understand' format, whilst his fee was most reasonable. I can confidently recommend DEESURVEYS to any new client and would be happy for them to contact me directly should they wish to do so.

Hoole Roof Restoration 25/02/2013

Dear Gavin, Just a quick line to to say how impressed we were with the survey you provided us on our own property. It was thorough, informative & professional. We are in a better position than we originally thought!

Liz 22/03/2012

I was extremely pleased with the efficient service provided by Gavin Floyd at deesurveys and particularly appreciated the way any follow up queries were dealt with by him. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

J.R. 30/06/2011

My wife and I are very happy with your timely and professional response to our request and feel that the reports have been clear, thorough and most helpful. In particular, your invitation to discuss any aspect of the report by telephone (while unnecessary in the most recent instance) was very reassuring and your service is very competitively priced. We would not hesitate to recommend Deesurveys to friends and others.
