Dear David

Thank you for coming to look at our property yesterday and thank you very much for this report.

The report is a very good summary of the situation and sets out your recommendations clearly. This is very helpful.

My immediate action will be to try to investigate the possible leak to our mains water supply, in case this has any impact on the increased damp in the dining room. This may help us decide how we replace the floor in the dining room and any other work that needs to be carried out.

Thank you for your recommendation of a builder and we plan to contact him soon.

Many thanks again for your help.

Kind regards,

Hi David,

Many thanks for the quick return and for the information contained within the report. We think it is a clear and well constructed report.

I just wanted to thank you so much for your invaluable help in extricating me from the clutches of a rogue roofing company. Your timely intervention and close monitoring of events went far beyond what I could reasonably have expected. Thanks entirely to you, my project is back on track with a reputable roofer. Not only have you saved me from wasting several thousand pounds; you have restored my peace of mind after a very stressful experience. I would unreservedly recommend you, not just for your professional expertise but also for going the extra mile for me.

Thank you again!

Thank you to your carefully prepared Party Wall Award and I confirm there is nothing in the award which would cause me to take action. I am so relieved to have this completed and thank you very much indeed for the work you have done on it to achieve this end. It is greatly appreciated.

Dear Mr Turner

Thank you for coming on above date to survey and subsequent provision of the report. Apologies that it has taken me time to communicate.

We were pleased with your promptness with surveying and the clarity of your report. Thank you too for receipt for full payment, which 'L' showed us. We had not expected that as had seen online transfers.

BTW, 'J' was amazed that I had found someone 'so good' thru an internet search, tho after almost 40 years of marriage 'J' knows that I research stuff thoroughly. If asked about a surveyor in the St Albans area we would be happy to pass your details on.

No need to worry re lack of ventilation in 'L's roof. Wind whistles thru - as if from Siberia in winter.

Many thanks

Dear Mr Turner

I cannot tell you how relieved I am you have brought this to a head and within a day Jo had put a cheque through the door for £700, signed by her.

Thanks for a wonderful way your letter was written and for your time tell me how I can thank you.

Dear David

Just a short note to thank and acknowledge you for the comprehensive report delivered today.

It is gratifying to know that the cracks you investigated are nothing other than normal wear and tear for a house of this age and construction.

Can I also take this opportunity to say I was very impressed with the thorough way you carried out your investigation, and in the most efficient and professional manner it was done.

I would certainly recommend you to others.

With best regards

Dear David

I was just tidying up a few things on this file and realised I had never thanked you for coming with us to the mediation on 14 November. I know Joan really appreciated all of your assistance, as did I. It was wonderful to have someone with us who really knew the property and understood the relevant regulations. I also really appreciated your calm, steadying influence on the proceedings.

I hope the next time we meet it will be in happier circumstances! In the meantime, many thanks again.

Kind regards

Dear David

Thank you so much for your email dated 11th May, and indeed for coming to the meeting the previous day. Mary and I were enormously impressed by your professionalism, and we considered you to be clearly the most effective consultant. Miss C is currently staying with us in Sussex, and she has this morning come to the momentous decision not to proceed with the planned improvement scheme, but to make completely different arrangements for her future. This was a great surprise to me, but I entirely support her decision. I am sorry therefore that despite your excellent presentation I am unable to instruct you in this matter on her behalf. I am so grateful to you for the time and trouble you took, and I sincerely wish you all the best.

Yours sincerely

Dear David

Just a quick note to say thank you for your helpful and prompt service.

The report is well constructed and gives us, and hopefully the builder, a clear picture of the issues and, therefore, a clear pointer towards a resolution.

Kind regards
