"My son Christopher had the very good fortune to be recruited by Gavin as a Graduate Surveyor 12 months ago. It has been a pleasure to witness his personal development and growth since then. He has enjoyed a fabulous learning experience working for Gavin, whose nurturing approach has been very evident every step of the way. He goes to work with a smile on his face and a spring in his step.
(Gavin, any chance you could move on to sharing your gardening tips with Chris next, please?)"David Lewis Senior Partner at solicitors Weightmans LLP 15.07.2021

I engaged Gavin to complete the survey on my new house and I couldn’t be more delighted with the end product. The report is far more detailed than anything I have ever received before and there are loads of photos to help me understand exactly what the situation is. I would have no hesitation to recommend Gavin to anyone requiring a surveyor.Mandy S. 11 / 03 / 2021

professionalism throughout this process and cannot thank you enough.
M & Y Wright 17/05/2019
Thank you Gavin, that’s great. Your conclusions coincide with my own as regards the factors determining the value, both in and of the house itself (modernisation needed especially) and also the immediate environment. Thank you for your time Gavin, it was a pleasure to meet you.
I really appreciate all the work you have done for me in trying to get the house sorted.

A.Price, Wirral 6/05/16
I am writing on behalf of a client who wanted to work with a surveyor to help them manage a building project to thank Gavin for his pro-active management of the project to date.
Gavin has liaised with the client and an architect to obtain outline planning permission - hence increasing the value of the site- and has come up with a number of options for developing the site once planning is approved.
This is an ongoing assignment and the client is delighted with the pro-active, professional manner in which Gavin has navigated matters to date and has thanked me personally for the introduction.
John Hunt FCA Pursglove & Brown Chartered Accountants 9/03/15
Many thanks for your comprehensive report. Having investigated the rear WC based upon your report it is clearly an illegal construction as no plans ever went in. Many thanks again for your work and I can assure you that any other work required of this nature will be instructed to yourself. Regards, Mark
Mark Higgins, Chester 10/12/2014
I am writing to thank you and to provide testimony for the excellent work which you have carried out recently for my client.
My client is seeking to raise additional finance against the existing equity in my clients property in a relatively short period of time and in order to satisfy the terms of the equity release provider, my client needed to either extend the existing term of the lease or purchase the freehold but had no idea which of those options to proceed with.
By undertaking the complicated and detailed assessment of the property valuation in a speedy manner and perhaps more importantly, in a way that enabled my client to easily understand the issues involved, my client is able to make an informed decision as to how to proceed.
I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to clients in future and indeed intend to continue to do so.
Thank you again for your assistance.

Gavin has been a valuable member of the Homebuyer Online surveying network, providing high quality survey reports within strict speed of service requirements. He has a detailed knowledge of property in his area of operation and his company Deesurveys is recommended.
Hugh Greenhouse FRICS - Managing Director Of Homebuyer On Line
& Chartered Surveyor 12/03/2013
I recently instructed Gavin Floyd of DEESURVEYS to carry out a full structural survey on a property which my son is in the process of buying and which is in need of complete renovation. Gavins extensive survey was detailed, informative and presented in a helpful, 'easy to understand' format, whilst his fee was most reasonable. I can confidently recommend DEESURVEYS to any new client and would be happy for them to contact me directly should they wish to do so.
Rob Brookfield, Grosvenor Designs 11/03/2013
Dear Gavin, Just a quick line to to say how impressed we were with the survey you provided us on our own property. It was thorough, informative & professional. We are in a better position than we originally thought!
Hoole Roof Restoration 25/02/2013
I was extremely pleased with the efficient service provided by Gavin Floyd at deesurveys and particularly appreciated the way any follow up queries were dealt with by him. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
My wife and I are very happy with your timely and professional response to our request and feel that the reports have been clear, thorough and most helpful. In particular, your invitation to discuss any aspect of the report by telephone (while unnecessary in the most recent instance) was very reassuring and your service is very competitively priced. We would not hesitate to recommend Deesurveys to friends and others.
Very quick and efficient service in terms of appointment and report turnaround. Well qualified surveyor, report very detailed as expected. Due attention paid to specific requests made. Very helpful and courteous. Highly recommend.
Very friendly, fast service. Very comprehensive report at competitive price. Mr Floyd was a pleasure to deal with, and was extremely accommodating to our requirements. Highly recommended.
