    I had a surveyor do a valuation at my property yesterday for my buyer. The surveyor … read more was professional, friendly and very polite. I was extremely anxious after reading all the negative reviews that my house would be down valued, but alas no! My buyers have paid over the asking price for my house and the surveyor has valued it at the exact same amount. I'm so pleased and grateful for SDL.
    Thank you.

    Great service from this company. Arranged by my lender, SDL rang to book an appointment … read more very quickly. Then rang back to offer an earlier slot. Paul rang 30 mins before arriving as promised. He was extremely pleasant, helpful and thorough. No complaint from us at all.

    The surveyor who attended was extremely professional, showing covid awareness and … read more politeness from the very start. He was informative, engaging and made what could have been a strictly procedural meeting, a more personable and enjoyable one. We shared good conversation and SDL should be made aware that this surveyor represents the company in an excellent way. Would definitely recommend their services as a result
