Chris and Carol Tobbell from Blyth


We used Paramount when we purchased a property in  late 2010.  The property needed full renovation, so we needed someone who could not only do a full building survey but give us some advice and guidance.  We were extremely impressed with the service and in particular the professional way the whole process was completed.

Colin put together a survey that was second to none, it was complimented on by our estate agent as very thorough and well presented.  We also used Colin’s contacts in the trade for extra assistance in what was to be a challenging project.  We finish by thanking Paramount for helping make our dream come true.

Lastly we would like to thank Jan for her input from office level, nothing was too much trouble however many calls we pestered her with.

Thank you both.

“We opted for the Smart Survey package and were very satisfied with the professional and courteous manner in which it was carried out. There was an exceptional level of detail recorded as the surveyor, Colin, spent over four hours investigating every part of the property we were intending to buy. As a result of this comprehensive survey we were able to identify and resolve a number of cost significant defects at the expense of the vendor before proceeding with the sale. We would not hesitate in recommending the services of Paramount Associates.

“We have used Paramount three times in the last six months to buy properties. The surveys are usually conducted within a few days, the reports are set out in a professional manner but easy to read and understand. I twice needed to speak to the surveyor to discuss some points and he was very knowledgeable. I will definitely use Paramount again. “

“This Firm recommended the services of Colin’s practice to an excellent client of ours who was considering taking a commercial lease on an old property and a business transfer. We recommended to our Client that Colin prepare a full survey report on the property as the lease contained full repairing obligations. Our Client reported in extremely glowing terms regarding the service provided by Colin. Due to the professional and detailed survey report prepared by Colin for our Client, our Client was able to negotiate a significant discount on the good will and business premises value, and obtain a full indemnity for items reported in the survey as ‘property defects’ from the landlord. An excellent service, and if our clients are delighted with Colin’s work we would have no hesitation referring Colin and his team into other of our Clients.

Thank you!”

“I’ve known Colin for a number of years, and during this time have heard nothing but good feedback from his clients regarding Colin’s professionalism and service levels, so when I had the need of advice regarding a couple of building maintenance issues I had no hesitation in asking for Colin’s help. I’m delighted to say Colin lived up to his reputation in every way – a reliable, expert service, backed up with honest advice regarding the project, and even some help with costing and finding suppliers to carry out the work. I’d have no hesitation in using Paramount Associates again in future.”
