David Rundle, chief executive, BYL Group
"A very, very professional approach to helping future surveyors."
Keith Harris, past president, IMBM
"Without the empirical findings of Michael Parrett gained over many years we would not have had the confidence to make the programme as hard hitting as it was. This is the best programme I have ever made!"
Ben Hamilton, BBC producer - Raising the Roof Series
"In all matters that I have dealt with Mr Parrett I have found him to be highly professional in his attitude, outlook and conduct."

"I have had the opportunity on many occasions to be assisted by Mr Parrett as an expert witness for the London Borough of Lewisham and, with increasing frequency, as a single joint expert for both parties to litigation, as an independent consultant. May I say that he has acted with the utmost professionalism on each occasion, and with an objectivity of which his contemporaries should be jealous."
Stephen Evans, MA (Cantab), barrister, Chambers of Lord Gifford QC
"A fabulous learning experience… as a surveyor, it’s going to be an essential tool for me."
Rob Clarke, London Borough of Lewisham Property & Investigation Department
"Very informative… Mike Parrett illuminates how there are other methods of investigation, more thorough and more reliable."
Carl Thompson, lawyer
Mike Tutton, ex-vice chairman, SPAB
"It presents things in a very accessible manner… exactly what the industry needs is a good dose of Michael Parrett… it will help raise standards and aspirations in the conservation and rebuild fields."

"The depth of the knowledge it took to create the Building Pathology series is apparent as soon as the first disk is opened. Whether the inspector is a novice or a seasoned veteran, there is a wealth of information right from the start… Many of us view our experiences as unique. What Building Pathology teaches us, however, is that moisture problems occur the world over."
Frank Lesh, president, American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI)
"Michael Parrett's work has been inspirational. The importance of this work is demonstrated by recognition from the construction industry which was well deserved"
Simon Brown, director of asset management for Liverpool Housing Trust
"Michael Parrett is an outstanding professional and we are delighted that the RICS is recognising the integrity and breadth of knowledge that he has brought to the surveying profession."
