Customer Reviews


Thank you for the attached report and answering my questions via telephone this
morning. We knew there would be some issues due to the age of the property and
are grateful for the information on additional items we wouldn’t have considered.
The report was in-depth but made for easy reading, not too technical. We really appreciate the quick turnaround time too. S Gibbons – Homebuyer Report -Colchester – November 2019
Thank you very much for the report. Having been recommended to you by a friend, I am extremely happy to say that the personal service you have provided has been as promised. I received my detailed survey in exceptional time. Thank you. I will be recommending you to others.S. Sylvester – Homebuyer Report – Maldon – October 2019
Thank you for your very comprehensive and detailed report. It has really helped us to make an informed decision about whether to proceed. I would have no hesitation at all in using or recommending your services in the future. S Lee – Building Survey – Colchester – September 2019
I found Dominic’s work very professional from the initial call onwards. He moved quickly to take all the relevant information from me and booked the survey within a week. He followed up after the survey to discuss all of his findings, it was all very thorough which is exactly what I wanted when buying a Victorian property. He mentioned a number of things that have since been raised with solicitors that I would’ve never known about, so it gives real peace of mind know what you’re up against with the type of property I’m buying. Dominic was recommended by a family member that found his services to be particularly good, I have since recommended to another family member too.HH – Building Survey – Ipswich – Sept 2019
I have read though the report and it is very thorough, the turn around from quotation to completion was also great. Just wanted to say thank you for the service. Adam – Homebuyer Report – Braiswick – Sept 2019
Thanks once again for your speedy service. It has been a pleasure using your services and I am impressed with the quick response and clear communication. The cost of the service has been much lower than other quotes thus good value for money.A Greyling - Homebuyer Report – Clacton – Sept 2019
Thank you for the report. It looks great and its very reassuring to hear such positive comments about the house.  I have been very impressed with your service, especially being able to carry out and complete the survey so quickly. Your level of professionalism is excellent – a real breath of fresh air!F Joyce – Homebuyer Report - Coggeshall – September 2019
From the start I found Dominic professional and organised.  He arranged the survey and kept me informed each step of the way.  After the survey he called me to update me on the outcome of the survey before providing me with a written report a few days later. This was clear and easy to read and noted any follow ups. Dominic was able to recommend a structural engineer who I then booked for a subsequent report.  Although buying a home is stressful Dominic made the process a bit easier.M Martin – Homebuyer Report – Colchester – July 2019
We would 100% recommend DWH surveyors. From the outset communication has been fantastic, Dominic was extremely accommodating as we needed to book the survey as quickly as possible. He contacted us once the survey was booked and then again on the day of the survey to give me his initial feedback. We received our Homebuyer report the very next day and it is very thorough. All in all, brilliant and friendly service and we are so pleased we chose this company for our Homebuyer report, being first time buyers they have given us the confidence we needed with our purchase.R.B and R Byan - Homebuyer Report – Colchester - April 2019

Thanks Dominic, for the well written and detailed report that was very useful in our purchase. Also, I really appreciated the good, clear and prompt communications throughout – that really helped me.

Thank you for completing our survey report quickly and efficiently. We are very happy with the service provided and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend DWH to anyone needing a house survey. We found the report very detailed and informative and felt that all areas we were concerned about were investigated thoroughly. We appreciated the phone call after the survey had been completed to explain the findings and the reassurance that we could ring you and ask any questions that might arise afterwards. M Lawton. - Homebuyer Report – Colchester - April 2019

Dominic was very good and helpful on completing our survey. He helped me to choose the right report for us and didn’t push us to go for the most expensive which I think is a true testimony to the honest, helpful and knowledgeable advice he gives. The report was clear and very helpful. It is clear he is a professional and takes pride in giving great service.K.S. - Homebuyer Report – Clacton-on-Sea - December 2018

Dominic of DWH emailed the report on the same day. Report presented in a way for easy reading for the layman. Dominic was personable and made a positive impression going “the extra mile”, advising me on something with regards to a potential issue even before I had instructed and paid him. Would highly recommend.D Thurgood - Homebuyer Report – Colchester - August 2018
Dominic has provided a professional, prompt and friendly service at a good price. The report he produced is extremely thorough and clear, providing explanatory detail and useful observations in addition to a comprehensive analysis of the structure and state of the house. I now know exactly what I am taking on and I have a prioritised checklist of work that should be done, all of which has given me confidence in making this purchase.M.Finn – Homebuyer Report – Wivenhoe - July 2018
We have been thoroughly impressed with our experience with DWH Surveyors. Dominic was warm and easy to converse with when instructing him to carry out a full survey on the property we were purchasing. He organised the appointment with the Estate Agent and was able to complete the survey within a week of being appointed. On the day of the survey he phoned to give an update and within a day had sent us a copy of his report. A very stress free experience from start to finish. Thank you DWH Surveyors.
G and S Leydon – Building Survey – Colchester - July 2018
DWH Surveyors Ltd have provided us with a timely, in depth report. We were very impressed with the customer service we received – Dominic was always quick to respond to our questions and organised the survey to be done as quickly as possible. We have been given very helpful recommendations and are now confident in buying our new home.
CW and JW – Building Survey – Ardleigh - June 2018
Dominic was superb throughout the whole process, making sure we fully understood the options available to us. He was able to complete our survey very quickly and provided not only a quick overview on the day but also a superb, clear report a few days later. The report is very easy to digest and extract any details we either need to share with our legal advisors or for us to think about for when we move. Would highly recommend.
N Smith – Building Survey – Tendring - March 2018
Thank you for the survey report regarding the bungalow. We found the report self-explanatory and easy to understand, and at the moment we have no questions. The reason I chose DWH Surveyors Ltd, was I liked the fact you looked at the bungalow on Rightmove and recorded your initial opinion of the property in our first correspondence. You didn’t try to persuade us to use the more expensive survey. I found your services to be quick, efficient and you kept us up to date during the process, providing us with the report the day after the survey. I would definitely recommend DWH Surveyors Ltd to any future home buyers.
L Scott – Homebuyer Report – Brightlingsea - February 2018
DWH Surveyors came recommended to us by our Estate Agent, after enquiring we appointed Dominic who swiftly made the arrangements with the third party to book in the survey. A welcomed courtesy call was received straight after the survey with the written report being issued very promptly soon after. Dominic provided a robust, swift and thorough service, just what is needed for a house purchase!
T and G Downs – West Bergholt - Building Survey – January 2018


We were very impressed with Dominic and the services of DWH Surveyors who we used for a Building Survey in December 2017. Dominic was a pleasure to deal with, prompt to answer queries and he issued us with a comprehensive yet easily digestible Building Survey which informed our purchase. His advice was practical and helpful and he was able to complete the survey and get us our Building Survey report promptly. We would not hesitate to recommend Dominic to our friends.
Mr and Mrs P – Building Survey – Dedham - November 2017
Lots of detail and advice on the survey, in jargon-free language. Good communication. Phoned us on the day of the survey and report received next day. Very pleased.
Mr and Mrs Hall - Homebuyer Report – Colchester - November 2017

Dominic provides a very professional service. He is attentive, thorough and a pleasure to deal with, and his survey was very well organised and easy to understand. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.
J K – Building Survey – Wivenhoe - September 2017
I have been impressed by Dominic’s availability and great deal of detailed information provided in the survey. I will have no reservation in recommending him very highly indeed
E.V. - Building Survey - Colchester – August 2017
We were very happy with the service provided by Dominic West and would wholeheartedly recommend him. Before undertaking the survey he provided sample reports to clearly show the nature and scope of the service he provides. He is professional and knowledgeable and the final report was comprehensive with recommendations that we were able to discuss with him later.
Having experienced the fall through of a previous sale, the vendor was understandably anxious so Dominic went above and beyond in getting the report to us by the end of the same day. Home buying can be stressful business but choosing the right professionals can make the process a lot easier and Dominic definitely did this for both ourselves and the vendor
A.M – Homebuyer Report – August 2017
I am very pleased with the service, survey and report by DWH Surveyors in Colchester. A Smith – Homebuyer Report - July 2017
Dominic has recently completed our home buyers survey on our purchase property. From the moment of my initial enquiry to the end, Dominic always responded to any query very efficiently, normally within a couple of hours of an email. Dominic provided us with our home buyers report within 48 hours of completing the survey which is very quick compared to other local surveyors! His quick response to enquiries and provision of the report assisted in the quick push through of the purchase of the property. The report itself was detailed enough to even those of us who are non DIYer’s to understand. Would definitely recommend Dominic to anyone for a survey.R Francis – Homebuyer Report - July 2017
Thank you very much for your service, the survey was undertaken promptly and at our request undertaken at an earlier date than originally planned, the report was very thorough and we were kept appraised by Dominic throughout the process.T Marsh – Homebuyer Report – Frinton - July 2017
As a building surveyor, I am very pleased with the service and report.A Smith - Homebuyer Report – Colchester - July 2017
An extremely helpful process from advice on choosing a survey to providing a report. A courtesy call to summarise main findings after the survey gave peace of mind. Very much appreciative of our timescales and therefore the report couldn’t have been sent any quicker! Prompt replies to queries of the report. I would highly recommend this service provided by DWH Surveyors.CG - Homebuyer Report - - Alresford - June 2017

Thank you so much for your speedy response. You really have pulled out all the stops for me and it is much appreciated. I would definitely recommend your services to anyone who needs a survey. You have always been polity and quick to respond, providing me with excellent information at all times. Nothing seems too much trouble for you. You even told me about a problem before I had heard it from the estate agent. The survey was though with any recommendations clearly outlined. An excellent service. Karen – Homebuyer Report – Clacton - May 2017
Dominic was very professional, polite and friendly and carried out a homebuyers report and valuation for us. Dominic rang me shortly after visiting the property which put my mind at ease. The concise report arrived 2 days later which was easy to read and understand. I am very pleased that I decided to use DWH Surveyors and would definitely recommend them to family and friends.

Thank you for the comprehensive and informative survey report on the above property. It made for interesting reading and will be very useful. I want to take this opportunity to say how pleased we were with the way you conducted the whole process from start to finish. You were readily available to talk to us on a one to one basis on any aspect. Apart from your professional expertise, it was that personal touch which went a long way to ensuring that the process was that much easier to deal with at what, after all, can be quite a trying time. We would have no hesitation in using your services in the future or indeed recommending you to others. M and A Wright – Homebuyer Report – East Bergholt - April 2017
I wish to thank you for the speed in which you dealt with the overall survey. From your initial reply to my first email to receiving your report I was very pleased that you kept me informed all the way through. It was very helpful how everything was explained. R Oliver - Homebuyer Report – Witham - March 2017
Dominic at DWH Surveyors has been fantastic from start to finish. I’m a first time buyer and we used DWH Surveyors to carry out a Building Survey on a property. As promised, we received an overview call when the survey was complete to run through any concerns. This was really useful, and something other surveyors do not offer. The full report was very detailed, and written in easy to understand language, free from jargon. From scheduling in the survey, to the overview call at the end of the survey, to the full building report being sent through – the process was effortless. I thoroughly recommend Dominic at DWH Surveyors if you want a highly professional and well-priced survey.A Luckie – Building Survey – Kirby Cross - January 2017
This is excellent – many thanks Dominic. Your report is really clear and easy to understand. Thank you so much for sending it so promptly, for responding to my key concerns and for including points about the garage and drains. JP – Homebuyer Report – Brightlingsea - January 2017
I was very impressed with the service I received from DWH Surveyors. It was quick and easy to book the survey, and I was pleased with the speedy delivery of my report. It was really helpful to have a call after the survey had been completed to explain where the main areas for concern were and answer any immediate questions. The report was thorough and very clear. I have followed up with all of the recommendations made in the report. Thank you very much! Nicola – Homebuyer Report – Chelmsford - January 2017


Thank you very much for your services. The report was very thorough, well written and easily understandable (for a female lay person!). I appreciate your attention to detail.

I will take the suggestions forward and will seek quotations for the work you have suggested.C Vickers – Building Survey – Heybridge – April 2016
I’d like to say that I have been very satisfied with your prompt and professional service on both occasions that you have carried out surveys for me.

Dominic phoned us to let us know when he was going to survey the property & when he’d been in & said a full report would be with us in 5 days, which it was. Very thorough survey.
