Mike is absolutely first class. He spent several hours surveying the property I had recently exchanged on and as a result of the detailed list of snags he picked up and reported on, I delayed my completion date until the contractor rectifies the snags. I would estimate that fixing these snags would have cost me in the region of £10K – £15K so the survey that MDR did was probably the best purchase I have made in relation to purchasing this new build.
Michael was top notch with the inspection. He was thorough and wrote a good report. The developer agreed to fix over 90% of the issues identified and that saved me a few thousands of pounds in future remedial work. Most importantly, he was personable, communicated and interacted well. I have no hesitation in recommending Michael. Just make sure you engage him early i.e. before completion or at least before moving in.
The entire process was easy and straight forward. The fees were simple to understand. Very friendly inspector. Report was available when they said i would. I would recommend their services.
Purchased a new build from Taylor Wimpey in November and had the pleasure of having Michael come in to inspect the house. Very thorough throughout the house, highlighting every single detail that any unsuspecting home owner would never be able to find. Well worth the small fee to make sure everything was up to standard!
Michael completed a comprehensive snagging list on a our new 4 bedroom house in Manchester. There were approximately 250 issues identified, some minor others a little more significant. Michael gave us the confidence to argue these out with the developers and most have now been resolved or in progress.
Not only did Michael provide a comprehensive snagging report in a very quick timescale, he offered to look at the paperwork provided from NHBC certificates to energy efficiency provided, I have been so impressed with the service, that I have already recommended him to a number of my neighbours and friends that are considering new builds.
Purchased a 3 bedroom house from Bovis. Mike did the snagging and defects shopping list for Bovis to resolve and put right before we moved in. With my naked eye personally i spotted 5 snags. But with Mikes professional eye he spotted 87. Money well spent on my families behalf and this gave us peace of mind that the house we purchased is perfect and defect free.
Michael was very thorough with his inspection. He spent time to uncover both major and minor issues. All the issues he found came with suggestions on how to remedy them. He was very honest and gave a thorough report at the end. Very friendly and easy to work with. All in all we were very happy with the Michael's work.
Michael did a thorough, professional job that made us feel more comfortable about purchasing our flat. He took his time to look at every corner of our flat, and his evaluation revealed his wealth of experience. Michael was also helpful with follow-up questions that arose with our builder. Highly recommended!
We used MDR Home Inspections following our purchase of a new build in Bromley, Kent. The service was outstanding and their report listing all the defects was detailed has been a great help. If you are buying a new home or have recently purchased, we would defiantly recommend arranging an Independent Inspection for peace of mind.
Since forming MDR Home Inspections we have completed numerous new build snagging inspections throughout the country on behalf of customers, to which we have come across some sound
