About the Company, Healthy Abode:
As a member of the PCA, we are qualified to carry out pre-purchase surveys for prospective buyers, evidence for clients to present to their building freeholders, Management Company or their buildings insurers; for landlords and tenants, and for solicitors and barristers.
My team (Josie, Kate) and myself (Stuart) work out of a Grade II listed building, overlooking the River Stort in Hertfordshire. Our location is perfect for covering Hertfordshire, Essex, London, Kent, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk; need us to come further afield, give us a call for a quote.
As a limited company, we have Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance. We’re currently VAT exempt, good news if you’re an individual. This means the price we quote is the price you pay. We’ve been trading since 2008 as a limited company Environmental Health Consultancy (GB) Ltd t/a Healthy Abode.
About the Office:
Kate’s my admin, she’s really friendly, great at booking jobs in, taking payments, ensuring your reports are sent out and taking messages for me whilst I’m out surveying.
Josie’s my Junior Consultant, like me she previously worked in Environmental Health and therefore is often out of the office, undertaking the other environmental survey work which we do. However, if she is in, her technical knowledge on damp, timber and mould defects is pretty good; so if I’m out surveying and you need a quick answer, she’s a really good person to ask. If she can’t answer it, then she can also take a message for me to call you. Seriously, gone are the days when the girls just made the tea!
On a serious note, the office is open Monday – Friday, 9:00 – 17:00 hours; you can try it after these hours and at weekends as it goes through to my mobile. But if it’s a choice of watching another episode of Bob the Builder (with my kids of course!) or answering, I can’t honestly say which I’ll do, so if you don’t get any joy, leave us a message or send me an email and I’ll call you back.
We are available by telephone or E-mail, from 7am until 10pm. We are flexible to suit our clients and can arrange to carry out work in the evenings or at weekends.
We are easily contactable and friendly to chat to. If we're out surveying, leave a message as we aim to respond to all requests within 3-4 hours.
