    How can we help?


    Thank you so much for this {the report} and the hard copies which have come through - wow you do a ‘proper job’ - thank you so much. Super.

    Dr M Moran

    Richard Hocking’s work reflected a highly observant attitude and clarity of presentation. It neither exaggerated nor minimised the practicalities of household maintenance and replacement in the future. Where he did not undertake a full investigation of certain aspects, such as flooring joists beneath boards and carpets, he stated this overtly. He also assessed white goods & decorative materials in use on the property, including wall coverings which might lift plaster off if we redecorate. He bore in mind our family needs on arrival and recommended immediate action where appropriate, thus helping us prepare for any tradespeople and also reassuring us about the good condition of the bathroom and kitchen. The firm was exceptionally prompt and responsive to the urgency of our commission.
