What our clients say…

When I called Abode they were really helpful, they knew the area I was looking to buy inside-out, and from the start offered a first-class service. They did a Building Survey for me and also offered a Market Valuation – it gave me real peace of mind that I was paying a sensible price for the property in that area.

Many of my clients have relied on the expertise of Abode Chartered Surveyors for detailed structural building surveys of premises across the North East. Those clients I have referred have found the level of service and professionalism to be of an excellent standard.

The advice we received from Abode regarding our refurbishment project and property valuation was second to none. The Surveyor had a unique and comprehensive background in property sales and survey, and no other valuer/surveyor was in his league. If you need property valuing or surveying, I can thoroughly recommend them.

I found that Mr Gardiner was professional and courteous in all my dealings with him whether on the telephone, in correspondence or via email. My Instructions were followed to the letter and an in depth and detailed report was produced which provided all the necessary information to the court. I have no doubt that he would have dealt with the giving of oral evidence in a professional and competent manner had it been necessary for him to do so on the day. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Gardiner as an Expert Witness in the area of Residential Valuation and Survey.

I was very pleased with the service I received from Abode. The report did all that I would have expected of it. Most strikingly were the discussions Alan and I engaged in after the report was sent. I felt he had a good knowledge of the market and was able to help me with decisions which came as a result of the report. I would definitely use Abode again and would recommend Abode for the same service.

As a first time buyer I was inexperienced in the intricacies of surveys, but Alan was able to provide me with ample guidance and advice. He went out to the property at very short notice and produced a clear and informative survey which led to my partner and I making a significant saving on the house price. Had it not been for Alan’s help we would have paid over the odds and entered into the purchase without knowing the extent of the work the house required. I would not hesitate to recommend Abode Surveyors to anyone looking to purchase a house, for us it was a very worthwhile investment!
