Many people have asked us over the years why surveyors recommend further reports – some see it as a negative thing. In general, however, People do not seem to be challenging the legitimacy of referring to a specialist, but expressing frustration if surveyors leave them high and dry with no guidance as to where to the extra advice they need. A few points:
- Rest assured that we will only recommend another professional’s view is needed if we believe it’s essential. Our style isn’t defensive and our surveyors are very experienced, so you get a definite and informed view on things to begin with.
- Surveyors, however, are a little like GP’s – sometimes it’s essential to refer to a specialist to ensure that your client has all the help they need.
- We always will be happy to make a recommendation, if possible. We want to help and see it as part of our service.
- Our reports all contain a referral page informing you of Specialist Xpress.
