Whilst the ability to pick up the phone and speak directly to the member of the team involved with the deal is highly beneficial, it is the breadth of knowledge and experience that makes Naismiths one of our top panel surveyors.

Alpha Property Lending has enjoyed a continued relationship with Naismiths and highly rates and recommends its reporting and monitoring role. Naismiths sends clear, concise and professional reports which offer a precise and up-to-date position of the development project. Naismiths’ reports allow the lender to make an informed decision on funding property developments. Most importantly, Naismiths has been exceptional when further investigation or analysis is required. The company has always offered a high level of service throughout the duration of a development and the surveyors are always willing to provide further feedback when needed.

Over the last year or so I have been working with David Hale of Naismiths on a residential development – he has provided cost report advice as well as acting as the monitoring surveyor on behalf of the bank.

It has been a refreshing change to work with someone who, despite being on the opposite side, actually understands development and all the various elements. I have found David to be extremely thorough and diligent in the way he has monitored the scheme and has always acted promptly when producing funder and payment reports. I will be looking to work on future schemes with this funder and so recommend David and Naismiths for these reasons.

Over the past five years Mumbles Group Ltd has carried out several multi-million pound development projects requiring close cost monitoring from initial planning stages to completion on site. We have always worked closely with Naismiths which provided bank monitoring services required by our funders. The level of professionalism and attention to detail displayed by the company provided assurance to our bankers, resulting in smooth and timely drawdowns of funds. Its deep understanding of construction processes and buildability consistently helped our teams to deliver successful projects. We would highly recommend Naismiths to any company looking for exceptional professional and friendly services.

Naismiths offers a comprehensive and detailed approach to project monitoring. Reporting is thorough with sensible reporting formats but that doesn’t prevent the team from picking up the phone if there is something urgent or issues arise.

We have found the company to be a safe pair of hands and a first line of defence for our development finance portfolio.

Naismiths has been on our monitoring panel for some time, with its Exeter and Nottingham offices both providing excellent service to the bank. Reporting is concise and to the point, with all information easily accessible and the team quick to respond to any queries we may have.

We are currently undertaking a development of three houses in Poole which Naismiths is monitoring and our surveyor involved is crucial to this progressing well and on budget. We hold a strong relationship with Naismiths and look forward to continuing business together.

Avamore has worked with Naismiths over the past five years and their approach to project monitoring has always been very prudent and solution-driven.

We consider Naismiths to be an extension of our in-house team, whereby we can rely on a very high standard of quality whenever we receive a report or recommendation. Naismiths’ customer-centric approach aligns with our own; sensitive to the deal dynamics and continually going the extra mile to keep both us as the lender and our customer, the developer, satisfied and wanting to work together on future deals together. Overall, Naismiths seeks the best outcome for all parties but whilst maintaining a very high level of risk management which is at the core of Avamore’s ethos.
