I needed a property inspection and report within a short (2-day) timeframe. Hicam was able to provide me with a detailed inspection report within a 24 hour period, which provided me with the confidence to make an offer on the property concerned.

Paul the Building Inspector is so professional and efficient. He really did put my mind at ease with carrying out the building inspection. From the first phone call to Paul, I knew I was dealing with someone I could trust and he was readily available to answer any questions I had. I highly recommend Paul, a true professional.
