We chose to use A J Hodge Associates to carry out a Building Survey on a commercial property as part of a feasibility study on its purchase. Andrew Hodge was quick to respond and understand our needs. He was flexible in his approach and very accommodating of some complexities with regard to accessing the building. We received an initial verbal report on the condition of the building on the same day of the survey and the full report followed very efficiently.
Andrew at A J Hodge Associates was invaluable when I was being pressurised for a quick purchase of a house. We of course still wanted a good surveying job done to make sure the house was in good condition. We rang a few people but no one could do anything for us quick enough. Then I found Andrew who went out of his way to squeeze us in for a survey and onsite discussion about the building. Andrew gave me lots of details about the building and pointed out various things I had not noticed. The report came through a few days later, it was very detailed and well written. I would have no reservations recommending Andrew to anyone that needed any surveying work done.
Following your survey we wanted to let you know that we were really pleased with the service you provided. We particularly liked the way that you were available to discuss your findings, both immediately after your visit and once we had a chance to read your report. Combined this was all really helpful and clear advice. We also really appreciated the fact that you were prepared to go back to the property to close off on an issue that you were inhibited from fully investigating in your first visit. All in all, we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending your services to others.
As a national charity it is important we consider costs and services very carefully. I contacted Andrew Hodge at A J Hodge Associates to help us with a property we were about to rent in Bristol and was very impressed with how quickly he responded to our initial enquiry, as well as performing a survey, as we were under very short timescales. Andrew met these without issue. I had complete faith in Andrew’s expert knowledge and he guided us through a process which we were not too familiar with, offering advice and support outside of the initial survey report. The report itself was extremely comprehensive and easy to read, which left us feeling confident that we are now protected against any future issues which may arise. Had we not had Andrew’s support then potentially we were at risk and could have incurred unnecessary costs. I have no hesitation in recommending the services of A J Hodge Associates.
Buying a house can be a real stress. Engaging a new surveyor can be a costly and frustrating business. Fortunately for us, Andrew was the opposite of all of these things. The service was fast, efficient and well executed with the minimum of involvement from us. The resulting survey was, without doubt, the most detailed and eloquently constructed survey anyone I know has ever seen – what’s more Andrew spent time talking it through with us as well. Massive thanks.
A J Hodge Associates were able to provide a significant benefit to our business both financially and by giving expert advice on matters outside our field of expertise. They achieved an outstanding result for us with our tenants and we will certainly retain their services.
We found that Andrew at A J Hodge Associates provided a fast, informative service to us. He really understood the commercial aspects of our organisation and was able to advise on the most appropriate and cost effective course of action. He was professional throughout and was able to give us practical, no nonsense advice without sitting on the fence like many other surveyors we have used in the past. We would not hesitate in using him again.
From the first conversation to the follow-up telephone call after the report was delivered I found Andrew to be exceptionally helpful. He communicated information to me in a professional, client focussed and easily understood manner. I have no hesitation in recommending him to family and friends.
We have now retained Andrew Hodge at A J Hodge Associates to act as our chosen Party Wall surveyor on all our projects. He has shown that he has tremendous knowledge of The Party Wall Act and is able to get on well with neighbours to avoid dispute. This has allowed us to progress our developments without delay and has undoubtedly saved us time and money.
I was purchasing a flat under very tight timescales and needed a surveyor who could meet them and not let me down. Andrew at A J Hodge Associates was able to inspect the flat within a couple of days and produced a thoroughly in depth report in a highly efficient manner. He was even able to give me a verbal report the day of his inspection. The survey gave good practical advice in an easily understandable format that meant I was fully informed to make my decision. Overall the survey was good value for money and it would appear that no stone was left unturned.
