Hi Ian,
Just a note to thank you for all your help and for such a brilliant and innovative idea!
The Hit-List received from you provided me and my builder with all of the information necessary to 'do it ourselves' and with your back-up advice on our findings, we soon got around to making an offer so thanks very much for such a brilliant survey plan! 

Michael Kerton - Oxshott - Building Condition Asssistance.

Clearly this was a ‘one-off’ situation where numerous 'quality inspection' visits were needed but your charges (and patience) remained incredibly good considering all that we had asked you to do for us!                                                                                               
The ‘Reports’ received were first class and both our builder and our designer (Architect) congratulate you (as do we) on the investigatory depths that you undertook.

  John Talbots - Hounslow - Key Stage Site Inspections and Quality Monitoring.

All ok with the report from our side Ian, we will raise the query with the neighbours as you have suggested. Thank you again for your kind, courteous and professional service.

   Preksha and Shetal Patel - Croydon - Building Condition Survey.

"Thanks very much Ian, both our legal team (and our builder) agree wholeheartedly with your fine report. Far too much repair attention required for the price being asked so we’ll now look elsewhere!

We are hugely grateful to have received from you the plain facts rather than the increasing and somewhat pointless lists of advisory notes now being offered by many so-called experts out there!"

   Alec Moran - Horsham - Building Condition Survey.

"Brilliant job Mr G!
As previously advised, it’s amazing how complicated some surveyors out there have made what in reality should be a straight forward survey analysis / assessment. Is it worth purchasing or not is all we needed to know. Thanks for your input Ian we are so glad to have found you!"

   Michael Bartlett - Woking - Re Le-Touquet France.

"I am pleased to acknowledge safe receipt of your letter of 30th September 2015 with copies of the final report and CD, all of which are very much appreciated and my thanks for your time, attention to detail and advice.
I was delighted to see Kilnbank Cottage featured on your website – not many clients can boast two properties on one website!"

   Mrs Jill Walker - Bexhill on Sea - Building Condition Survey.

"We were introduced to Ian by a former RICS colleague of his who has since retired and we have found Ian’s input and diligence superb to say the very least!
Ian is ‘old-school’ and works ‘hands-on’ physically testing everything and his report read like a room by room guided tour, investigating everything! He climbs through the roof space, He damp tests and he even checks the drains, the damp proof course and well..Everything!"

    M. Groombridge - Ascot

"In my search for a Surveyor, I was contacted by Ian in a very polite and professional manner.
Upon communicating / speaking with Ian via email and by phone, you cannot help but be impressed by his knowledge and expertise in his relative fields and he was able to advise me on the type of Survey which would best served my purpose & needs as well as providing me with an extremely competitive quote.
The work was then carried out and the report put together very quickly with the report being exceptionally detailed and in depth whilst being very easy to read and follow. I would happily recommend Ian to anyone."

   Mr N. Garner - Coulsdon - Building Condition Survey

"I am delighted with the service that Ian provided.
From start to finish Ian was incredibly professional and went above and beyond the call of duty. Ian's survey was incredibly thorough and I received a draft copy of the report within 2 days of the survey being done.Working with Ian was a pleasure and going forwards I wouldn't want to   buy another property without his input!"

   Ms Sovrila Soobroyen - Addiscombe, East Croydon - Building Condition Survey.

"When I last moved house I appointed my Mortgage company to carry out a homebuyers report for me. This was very expensive, and in my view I was left with a largely pointless document that didn't really provide me with much more information than I already knew. As a total polar opposite, the Building Inspection Report that Ian Gibb has provided me this time around was exceptionally detailed and fantastic value for money."

   Mr Ben Gilmour - Thames Ditton - Building Condition Survey.

"Ian very recently completed a survey for a property we are looking to purchase and we were very impressed with the detail of the report and the time and care he had taken to thoroughly review the property.

We especially liked the pictures of the issues identified and we would not hesitate in recommending him to others in the future."

   Ms Angharad Webb - Epsom Surrey - Building Condition Survey.

“I was lucky enough to be referred to Ian by a colleague.

His wealth of experience and outstanding level of customer service was evident immediately and I will absolutely be using his services and recommending them to others in future.”

  Review by Ms Cheyen Evan - Dorking Surrey - Snagging Assistance.

"Ian Gibb has provided me with surveys in Wallington and Carshalton and I highly recommend the quality of the service - his assessment was comprehensive and clear, and the report usefully includes a DVD.

Ian is extremely helpful and willing to answer any questions you might have.

I especially appreciated his contacting me for an informal report immediately following the survey."

   Ms Anne Hogan – Kensington - 2x Building Condition Surveys.

"I have left a comment in your guest book Ian.  Many thanks for all your help with this (and our previous) report.  They are simply superb!

All the best,


   Mr Steve Barnes, Lingfield, West Sussex - Building Condition Survey.

"Ian conducted the survey at very short notice and his prices are very competitive.

What you get with Ian is a high quality, professional and personable service.

Ian – thank you so much, I will be keeping your contact details handy."

   Mr Alberto Pita - Twickenham - Building Condition Survey.

“I was impressed by the simple and timely way the survey terms were agreed, and the survey itself undertaken and reported.

Not only do I consider it excellent value for money, the evidence set out in the report gives me full confidence in proceeding to buy the property.”

   Mr Charles Raymond Stunell - Gosport - Building Condition Survey.

"A very thorough survey over and above expectations.

Presented in layman's language with photographs of the areas commented on, burnt onto a DVD.

Great value for money and the feeling that a personal interest was taken."

   Mr & Mrs T Samuels - Stoneleigh Surrey - Building Condition Survey.

"I first met Ian Gibb back in the early eighties when he moved from construction management into surveying full time working with a surveying practice in North London and since then, Ian has surveyed four properties for me and his reports are exceptional.

This latest survey proved to be a real test due to the building having been incrementally altered and added to since the 17th century.

Ian’s obvious passion for history won the day and the report received would enhance the reputation of any estate agent!
I can’t recommend Ian highly enough to those who not only want to have an understanding of the properties condition, but also an accurate account of the days in which the building first appeared!"  

   Mr Mark Hawes - Winchester.

"Ian Gibb provided us with a Survey for our home in Tadworth prior to purchasing from Raven Housing Association. This is the second time we have used Ian's services and the reasons why are simple. Ian is professional, reliable, helpful and a true old school gentlemen.

The quality of the time he spends and the level of detail that goes into his reporting is far above what I expected with very reasonable fees."

   Mr Simon Newton - Smith - Dorking

“Ian Gibb carried out an incredibly comprehensive survey for a house we are looking to buy in Dorking, his prices are very competitive and his work is of the highest standard.

We were impressed with his communications throughout and the speed in which he turned round the initial report. He also reports from a more human perspective which we appreciated."

   Mr Jim Houlden & Ms Claudia Gunter -  Dorking Surrey - Building Condition Survey.

"Ian Gibb was extremely professional in his survey of the property. He undertook it promptly gave us a quick reaction followed by a very detailed report and set ofsupporting photos.

He was willing to discuss the property and report in detail by phone; and advice in writing on costs for the work he considered was required.
His initial charge was very competitive and he added nothing more for the extra time spent in discussion and preparing the supplementary information. I would recommend him without reservation."

   Dr Alvin Nienow - Walton on Thames, Surrey - Building Condition Survey.

"The work was carried out thoroughly and professionally and I would have no hesitation in recommending this company.

I would also choose to use them again should I require this type of service. Highly recommended, a high quality service at a competitive price."

   Mr Taylor – Horsham West Sussex - Building Condition Survey.

“I contacted Site Inspection Services following two recommendations from Colleagues and I must say I have been impressed by the quality of the service and the reactivity of Ian's responses.

It is simply a true service and with no doubt the best quality for the money spent. Well done!”

   Mr Jérôme Nessi – Richmond, Surrey - 2 x Building Condition Surveys.

"I contacted Ian Gibb at SIS because we were buying a new house and felt we wanted something more than a valuation or homebuyers report. We felt these would be box ticking surveys and wanted a more thorough survey, Ian definitely gave us that! His whole approach is great, very thorough leaving no stone unturned, he was very approachable and helpful, explaining things we didn't understand. I would highly recommend Ian Gibb to anyone who is unsure."

  Sam Fitzgerald - Dorking - Building Condition Survey.

“Thanks very much Ian!

Greatly appreciated.

Best regards,


   Mr Matthew Riley BA (Hons) MSc MRICS – Fleet, Hants - Building Condition Survey.

"Site Inspection services have recently undertaken a building condition survey on a property I have since purchased in Orpington. Ian was very thorough in his report,outlining a number of issues that whilst not needing immediate attention, I was unaware of and these will need to be looked at in the near future.
From point of contact with Ian until completion, the entire process took less than a week.
Fantastic service, would highly recommend."

   Mr Joe Imber - Orpington, Kent - Building Condition Survey.

"At a very competitive price, Ian has provided us with an incredibly detailed survey that went above and beyond what we expected!

In particular, Ian has been very helpful in an issue that arose (which I would consider to be outside the remit of the survey) which we are hugely grateful for. I'll certainly be recommending Site Inspection Services in the future!

Many thanks again Ian."  

   Ms Sarah Murphy - London E13 - Re: Croydon - Building Condition Survey.

"I have dealt with building surveys and surveyors for many years now and what attracted me to the service offered by Site Inspection Services was the competitive price above other competitors in the business. After contacting Mr Gibb for my initial enquiry I felt that he was not like those usual “automatic service response robots” that we seem to get nowadays with most service providers and I followed my gut feeling and employed him to carry out a structural survey on a house that I am intending to buy.

On my first impression, the house in question did not show any serious concerns for me to proceed with the transaction. However the survey carried out was written very thoroughly, covering every single room in the house, as well as the external areas. He even took some incredible external photographs of a roof, part of an attic extension, which couldn’t be seen at all from the ground when I visited the house.

I have no hesitation in recommending Mr Gibb for any building survey because he is an honest professional that you can trust and he goes the extra mile to facilitate the decision making process that we all go through when buying expensive items such as houses.

Thank you Mr Gibb and press on with the good work!"

   Mr Abelard Dure - Croydon - Structural Survey.

"Dear Ian,

Thank you for an excellent report and all your advice, it was very helpful in our decision-making process. We shall keep you posted!

Best Wishes, Faisil & Saima".

  Review by Mr & Mrs Shah in Kingston upon Thames, Surrey - Building Condition Survey.

"An excellent survey when completed. The first introduction was honest and to the point. The survey report was written in a very professional and logical order and gave me the confidence to go ahead and purchase the property.

The service provided afterwards was above expectation and I would definitely recommend Site Inspection Services who are excellent".

   From Mr Anthony Kirby – Epsom - Building Condition Survey.

"I feel so lucky that my path crossed with Ian Gibb. A thorough gentleman with exemplary knowledge and work ethic. Ian took time out after the survey to explain all his observations in a great deal of detail to help me make an informed choice.
I was really impressed with his building and related areas' knowledge.

With most professionals out there, service pretty much ends once they have fulfilled their part of the deal to justify the expense however, with Ian it was such a breath of fresh air that when further work was required...

Ian proactively took the lead to fix up another appointment with the estate agent - at no extra cost.

Such a pleasure to have you as our surveyor Ian and I do hope that our paths cross soon again.

Thanks again for all you have done for us."

 Mr Vinay Dhamija - New Malden, Surrey - Building (Structural) Survey.

“Ian Gibb provided us with a highly comprehensive condition survey and went above and beyond his scope of works.

The speed and organisation of this service was second to none and It is clear he has a full engineering background. We were highly impressed by the services provided and would highly recommend to all people.”

  Kevin & Samantha Fenech in South Godstone, Surrey - Building (Structural) Survey.

"Ian Gibb of Site Inspection Services undertook a Building Condition Survey on a complex residential property in Eastbourne that had been much neglected in the last 30 years.

I received an excellent personal service with both pre- and post-survey support and advice.

The report was very comprehensive, easy to follow and highlighted and prioritised areas requiring remedial action. In addition the time and trouble taken researching the history of property, added to a very personal service.

I have no hesitation in recommending this company."

   Ms Jill Walker - Eastbourne

"Ian did impressive prep before the building survey by obtaining the EPC and all relevant documents from the local council for the extension work of the property we were buying. The survey was carried out very swiftly, and we got our full report shortly after. The report was certainly the best in class and the most thorough that I have seen with everything clearly laid out and explained, definitely not one of those normal reports full of assumptions!"

   Mr Minglei Chen - Petts Wood, Bromley, Kent - Building Condition Survey.

"The survey was carried out very swiftly, and we got our full report shortly after. Ian worked diligently for us, consistently delivering above our expectations, and kept us informed at all stages, he even secured a "systems tutorial" with the seller to show us how everything operates in the property.
Ian is easily contactable and made every effort to address our queries.
I won’t buy another house without his advice!"

   Mr Sushant Shravista, Weybridge, Surrey - Building Condition Survey.

"This is our fourth survey on our property purchase journey and by far the best survey report that we've ever seen!
Ian Gibb has provided us with a room by room account of the condition of the house from top to bottom including the loft and we are delighted with Ian's efforts on our behalf. The report was not one of those 'normal' lists of mindless caveat's but instead, outlined everything requiring attention in plain English with estimated costs attached. Brilliant job!"

  John and Mylene Adamston - Kent - Building Condition Survey.

"As a first time home-buyer in the UK, my situation has been all the more difficult due to the fact that I am currently living in Germany.
Mr Ian Gibb of Site Inspection Services came highly recommended to me via a family member for whom he had carried out a home-buyers survey.
Firstly it was Mr Gibb's polite and courteous manner that impressed me.

The detail into which Mr Gibb inspected the property was exceptional given the price, coupled with photo evidence of his findings making it easy to understand.
I most genuinely would recommend Mr Gibb of Site Inspection Services as the first choice!

In an overall process which can be fraught with difficulties and uncertainty, the home-buyers survey element, was indeed the one time I felt comfortable that I had made the right choice.
Outstanding work, and serious value for money!"

Mr John Candler - Germany Re - Fareham in Hampshire - Building Condition Survey.

"Ian carried out a full building survey on a property we are looking at purchasing.

He was incredibly helpful from the first call, through to the final report. Not least of all he undertook the survey at very short notice. I was impressed with the report I received, which was very comprehensive and found the whole service to be very good value for money.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend his services and wouldn't consider going anywhere else if I needed a survey done in the future."

  Karen Armstrong - Building Condition Survey - Ashtead Surrey.

"I am very impressed by the level of service i received from Ian.
I required a home buyers report for a 1960's detached house in Eastbourne.
From the initial inquiry to the report landing on my doorstep the communication was excellent and Ian was available to give further advice after he had conducted the survey. To anyone wanting a survey, I would thoroughly recommend Site Inspection Services."
