Definitely recommend Bakemans.
recommend Bakemans. Their building survey was excellent. Loads of photos with defects which I used to negotiate the property price down to a more acceptable level. I will use them again if buying
Saved me money so worth the survey.
Pleased with the
commercial valuation and building survey. Saved me money. Definitely recommend.
report was delayed by a few days but very detailed with lots of photos explaining the defects found. Amazed at how much they picked up on a fairly newish house.
Detailed building survey report.

Did a help to

Slightly delayed because of how busy they are, but only proves how cost effective and credible their reports are. Pleased with their service.

report. Helped me with my matrimonial case regarding equity split and retrospective value too. Easy to read report and solicitor was happy too.
Saved me from buying a money pit.
level 3 building survey to an old cottage and they found defects in the roof and damp proof course which needed further investigation. Can't thank them enough for their survey which saved me from a
potential money pit. On this basis, I would recommend their services to others.
Thank you for
the report. It was clear enough to show me how much work was required to the property. And thank you for the phonecall afterwards to explain the report to me too.
Good report. Helped me make the right decision. Thank

service and very helpful report. Saved thousands off my property purchase and the report paid for it self.
Thank you for
providing a meaningful building survey with clear photos and illustrations detailing critical issues. I have taken your advice on board for the further investigations and I am very grateful for the
insight. I definitely recommend your services to others looking to purchase property
report. Pleasant enough guy who offered good advice before and after the survey. Pleased with the service.
Industrial unit building survey
surveyed an industrial unit for us which we are looking to buy. The report was very informative and gave us estimated costs for repairs and further investigations. Very helpful indeed. Pleased with
the report now all I need is a bridging loan to ensure I can undertake the additional works and further investigations mentioned in the report prior to occupation!
Thank you for the building survey.
Thank you for
the building survey. Very informative and thought provoking. Good use of photographs and well documented. I would also like to thank you for taking the time to talk through the survey report with me
after sending the survey through to read. I recommend your services. Well done.
Decent surveyor and good report.
Good report. Asked for advice to re-design the house in a purple and khaki colour using dyed renders and plastomeric claddings which my architect recommended. However, the surveyor was quick to point
out the limitations to my re-modelling intentions by highlighting the functionality of the design in relation to the type of property I was purchasing. Apparently, it is difficult to re-render Wimpy
no-fines properties with bespoke render systems due to their structural integrity and thermal efficiency being affected. I was also told it was difficult to get a mortgage on a non traditional
property. I have since decided to purchase a traditional (brick and block based) property instead on a cash only basis rather than go for a non traditional type.
Business Response 28 Nov 2018
Thank you for the positive review Junaide. Much
valuation report for target help to buy loan. Very happy with the service. The surveyor went through the process with me and clarified my queries regarding the valuation and even offered to adjust
the valuation if I had more relevant property comparisons. Job well done.
building survey which was carried out within a week. Received the interim report within 48 hours. Got the full report a week later with detailed photos and explanations to issues with property. Good
service. Will recommend.
& Valuation report was excellent. Good photographic evidence of defects and clear understanding of what to do to put them right. Also gave me free additional advice over the phone after the
survey report was emailed over to me which I thought was a good bonus to their quality service and report. However, the report took a little longer than expected because they were busy, but that is
understandable due to the quality of the report and the surveyor qualification and experience, which means they are probably in demand.
Very qualified and experienced surveyor who knows his stuff.
The real deal.
I have to admit,
their surveyor knew his stuff! Very qualified and experienced. I was going to purchase a property worth close to a million pounds in Leicestershire, it had only been built a few years ago and I
thought it was a bargain, especially with all the land around it. The surveyor managed to pick up issues such as trees affecting the ground and adjoining structures as well as having the potential to
disturb the property being surveyed. He gave me excellent advice of foundation design to protect the property going forward if I decided to purchase. He also researched the tree preservation orders
affecting future development and restricting structural works which have unfortunately impeded the sales process. I asked him how soon he realised these issues, and he said as as soon as he stepped
out of the car! When I saw his list of credentials, I thought he was trying it on. This guy is the real deal. Don't bother looking any further. He saved me from making a million pound mistake
with the service, very efficient you have saved me thousands.
Thank you very much.
I can't thank
Bakemans enough, especially their surveyors who have saved me from making a huge financial mistake. I nearly bought a property which was unsuitable for my needs and budget, but thanks to the quick
work of their surveyors, and their interim report plus free post survey consultation, I was quickly able to backtrack my way out of the transaction and purchase a more suitable property instead. I
have saved over £70,000 in potential works which were required to the surveyed property and the current property purchased, looks to save me even more! Thank you for your help, Bakemans.
Excellent service and saved me money!!!
to carry out a building survey which was well detailed and had enough photographs to help me understand the report. I didn't realise I was about to buy a moneypit, but thanks to their report it all
made sense. I used an engineer to check if the report was true, and it was all good. Trustworthy bunch. Will use them again and definitely recommend.
Homebuyers Survey and Valuation
Fast, prompt appointment and an interim report within 24 hours of the survey followed by a full report within several days. Also provided free telephone support aftercare to discuss the report with
me which was really helpful because I did not understand some of the terms and their implications properly.
Invaluable advice and report.
survey report provided for a stone cottage in Matlock. Made me realise what I was letting myself into in terms of financial expenditure. In the end, opted for a modern property. I would recommend
people get a building survey done when buying older properties otherwise you could end up buying something you cannot afford to maintain.
Helped me save over £20,000 off asking price through building
Used Bakemans to
carry out a building survey and they provided a wonderful service helping me reduce the asking price by over £20,000 by identifying a multitude of defects in the victorian property I was buying.
Would definitely recommend using them.
I used Bakemans to
carry out a Target HCA valuation. I found them to be affordable, knowledgeable about the Homebuy process and very courteous. The report was turned around quick enough for me to meet Target HCA's
deadlines. I would definitely recommend their service.
Bespoke personal service.Great help!
The survey allowed
me to make a very well informed decision which has saved me making a very big mistake. I was offered a bespoke service which saved me money. Additionally I was given thorough verbal feedback along
with a detailed written report of a high standard. Best £420 I have spent!
I can't thank
Bakemans enough for their help when buying a house. I backed off two properties thanks to the information provided by Bakemans which helped me put things into perspective, before rushing and buying a
home. They helped me understand my offer, the value of the house and the market as well as give me detailed information about the condition of the houses before I made my purchase. If it wasn't for
Bakemans, we would have ended up buying the first house we liked and inherited a 50k repair bill. The house we finally settled on was more suitable for us and less costly to maintain, meaning we had
more money to spend redecorating the property to our satisfaction. Thank you for your help Bakemans!
Well written report.
Very detailed. Would use again.
The survey which saved me money - Brilliant Survey!
They provided a very
detailed survey which helped me shave several thousand pounds off the asking price - in the end it paid for itself!
They saw stuff which I couldn't see and made sense of it all with a free telephone consultation after sending the report through.
Very pleased with their service and would recommend to all homebuyers.
