GPB PROJECT SERVICES – CLIENT COMMENTS
Thank you very much for preparing the report so quickly and for being available for our queries. You certainly are extremely professional and should be proud of the service you offer.
Mrs D (Singapore)
Your survey report was not only extensive, but written in terms that we could easily understand. Your prompt and professional service has given us the confidence we needed to proceed with our purchase.
Many thanks for your survey—it really is invaluable to have someone with an expert eye go in and give the tires a good kicking, so to speak. Many thanks indeed for the swift preparation of the survey report.
Mr. H (Japan)
If you ever want a reference for your fantastic work don’t hesitate to get in touch.
I am so glad that we had the survey done, it was money well spent and your advice has been invaluable so thank you for that.
Miss B. (Singapore)
As a result of this worthy and priceless advice, we will NOT be going ahead with the purchase of this house, and the search for our new home continues.
Thanks a lot Gordon for the survey, interpretation of the diagnostics surveys and of the budgetary estimates.
Thank you very much for proceeding so quickly to get us the report. We are much better informed on what we are taking on.
You have been so very helpful to us and we cannot thank you enough for a very professional report and we feel it was money very well spent.
Thank you very much for doing our inspection and for your written report. I now have the confidence to go ahead and purchase the townhouse. You did a wonderful job.
Mrs M (Australia)
Many thanks for your prompt and very complete Survey Report.
We have been dealing in properties for many years and this is the first property that we have purchased unseen. This decision was not made lightly but the thorough and informative building survey you carried out was a major contributor to this decision.
Your customer service and communication was excellent and sets a benchmark for your profession to aim for. Once again many many thanks
Mr P. (New Zealand)
Thank you very much for this - very professional and impressive.
After reading your Survey Report we both feel that we now have a much better idea of the house and its merits and faults.
We will use your Survey Report as a guide for working on the house. We were dithering but we feel much more confident now.
So, thank you Gordon for your good work.
How much does it Cost
For a normal size property of say 160 square metres habitable surface/ 4 bedrooms, 3 reception rooms a typical fee would be £450 paid in advance. Larger properties would attract a larger fee dependant upon size and number of units.
When you first contact me with a view to using my services, I will require contact details of the agent and details of the property such as the For Sale information on the agent's web site, and this will enable me to prepare a fee quotation.
Once you have registered with me, I then send you detailed Guidance Notes on the system for purchasing a French property and immediately contact the selling agent or the vendor to enquire about the existence and/or the timescale of the Diagnostic and Drainage Reports. These are normally available in PDF formats so are easily emailed to all interested parties.
In some cases, the vendor is unwilling to pay for the inspections until a serious buyer is interested in the property. This can mean that the reports may not all be available at the time when you are being pressured to making an offer.
This is the time when my contribution can be most effective. You can demonstrate your interest to the vendor by declaring that you are seeking independent professional advice and that any offer made at this time is subject to receipt of satisfactory reports.
Once the Diagnostic and Drainage reports are issued, I prepare my Detailed Written Report, usually within 4 working days, in clear common-sense English, advising on the results and what action I consider is appropriate.
I will deal with any queries you may have before you make the final commitment to buy the property. Armed with all this information you are in a strong position to finalise negotiations or even to decide whether or not to proceed further with the purchase.
If you proceed, I continue to offer you help and advice by email or on the phone if you have any concerns about the property, or the buying process, right through to completion.
After helping literally hundreds of clients to make the decision whether or not to buy I am convinced this is a valuable service I can offer for property purchase throughout all the regions of France, potentially saving my fee many times over.
My aim is to provide invaluable peace of mind and minimise the stress of buying your "Dream" property in France.
Why not send me details of a property you are considering and enquire about the way I can help?
