“Kevin’s survey was clear and thorough. He listened to our concerns and was generous and practical with his advice. His acute observations saved us from a purchase that would have resulted in endless stress. Well worth the money.”
“Kevin provides first class, independent building surveys to first time buyers, those moving home or considering buying a second property or holiday home. His advice is clear, concise and his reports easy to read uncovering a lot of the detail that is not covered in any particular fashion by your mortgage surveyor. With the current challenges in the property market I would recommend a full building survey on any potential purchase as it is better to discover and resolve any particular building issues before you complete. As a chartered building surveyor, Kevin provided a discreet, matchless service and I have now used him twice and would not hesitate in recommending him to others.”
“I have engaged the mapping services of Kevin McVitty on many occasions in relation to applications for compulsory first registration at Land Registry, preparation of transfer maps and lease maps. I have also engaged his mapping expertise to help inform our view of potential encroachments. I have found his service to be efficient, effective and competitively priced. He remains my first port of call in relation to any mapping requirements.”
"I have used Kevin on a variety of transactions for the purposes of professional mapping of CFR applications which we include with our applications to Land Registry. I have been impressed by Kevin’s expertise, diligence, flexibility and delivery within challenging timescales. I would have no hesitation in recommending Kevin to other clients."
"I have had the assistance of Kevin McVitty as an expert witness in different matters over the years. The cases have ranged from liquor licensing applications to title disputes. I have found his reports to be extremely useful. He is both meticulous as regards detail and imaginative as regards solutions."
