“My first contact with Surety Property Reports was when we were selling our country property. Surety was the company hired by the purchaser. We were so impressed by the thoroughness we decided when we purchase a property we would use their service. We did and could not be more pleased. The report was very well written. This company was reliable and if they were running late would ring and let you know. We found them to be honest with the quote. Old fashioned service at its best. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.”

“A Big Thank You to Jacqui and Grant!

The scheduling process was very smooth and effortless, I greatly appreciated Jacqui’s responsiveness for my unique situation. Grant’s expertise as the inspector was evident from the moment he arrived. I truly appreciated his valuable inputs and confirmation of all the technical details during the walk-through and it gave me complete peace of mind about the quality of my new home.

I couldn’t be happier with the service I received, and I would highly recommend your team to anyone in need of a handover inspection.
