Mr G G, Wellingborough

David. Many thanks for the highly detailed report on the cottage. We were impressed by its range and depth. Sadly we will not be proceeding but will no doubt require such an efficient survey again.

Mr T N, Northampton

Thank you very much for this Howard and thank you for getting it done so quickly.

Mrs R W, Duston

My husband and I were buying an older house near Northampton. Howard Payne gave us a prompt and professional service from start to finish.

Miss N G, Corby

I have used Howard David Surveyors for several years. They valued some properties for me and have recently been of great help surveying the properties and preparing new sets of deed plans for my Solicitor.

Mrs C B, Oundle

I would 100% recommend Howard David, who we used for a property valuation – they were friendly, professional, and the whole process had a very quick turn around, exactly what we needed.
