I recently used Allied Surveyors for the very first time and was extremely impressed with the service provided. From the initial marketing aspect to them finding a very suitable tenant to lease my premises in Edinburgh. The whole process was run smoothly and very efficiently start to finish

Iain and his wider team recently sold two of our commercial properties in the Borders region for us. An excellent, very efficient and first-class service. Very pro-active in moving the sales along to conclusion. Highly recommended.

Iain, Berndetta and Lauren provided a seamless and thoroughly professional service during our recent commercial letting in Edinburgh. A fantastic experience and I’d have no hesitation in working with their team again.

Ellie is fantastic to work with. She goes over and above to ensure all our needs were met, right from the initial contact through to completion. She is thorough, professional and works hard to meet deadlines. A pleasure to work with. Thank you.

I have huge thanks for Simon and all at Allied Surveyors who are just the most wonderful company to deal with. Buying/selling a home can be a complex process and to give someone your time is such a simple thing yet often lost in the current world, Simon at Allied has given us just that as well as mountains of advice and a sharing of his knowledge. Thanks Again

We have just used Allied Surveyors for EPC for our properties on the Isle of Mull and found them to be excellent throughout the process. All contacts were friendly, clear, efficient and courteous and the surveyor was very knowledgeable and considered in his work on site. Would not hesitate to recommend them.

Never had an issue with Allied Surveyors. Mrs E Henderson was brilliant both with buying and selling my previous and current property. Would always use them as my first choice.

Quick and efficient service from Andy and his team - just as they said they would do. Special mention to Andy as he was actually on his holidays when he initially responded.

Allan from Allied Stirling has done a few home report surveys for us in recent years. He has always been honest, thorough and professional. And decent value for money. I highly recommend him.

We’re here to help.
