Review by Hazel M.
Project: Analyze a Structural Issue (Structural Engineer)
Terrible job very unprofessional
0.5   |  01-16-2018
I would leave 0 star if there is an option. Very disappointed at the whole experience (which was really awful) and the service provided by Mr. Raj Lal, who is neither helpful nor reliable. We just bought a house and wanted to conduct a thorough structural inspection by a certified structural engineer. Raj came to the house (late and said his GPS wasn't working and couldn't find our house), spent 15mins looking at the house, and said there was no structural issue. In the meantime, Raj promised to send the inspection report with a list of contractors who can help improve the foundation/driveway in the complicated way that he recommended. Two days later, I received two separated emails, each email included half of the inspection report, which technically made it a complete inspection report, how ridiculous! Not to mention that the report was scanned in a very bad quality. I let it go. However, no list of contractors was sent with the inspection report. Called Raj after a week and reminded him of the list of contractors he promised. Raj said he was on a cruise but would send the list a week later. Two more weeks passed, nothing received from Raj, called Raj again, Raj said he was on a cruise but promised to send the list in the afternoon. Nothing received from Raj that day. Two days later, received a phone call from Raj, saying that he had some questions and wanted to talk before sending the list. On the phone, Raj said that it was hard for him to put together the list and suggested that we should just do a google search for contractors we need. I explained to him that we trusted him and relied on his to refer us to some good contractors. Raj made it clear that he did not want to share his source of contractors and did not want to send a list at all. I reminded him that a list of contractor was promised by him and I can't consider his job finished without the list. Raj suggested that I could bring him to the court if that was what I believed. Later that day, my husband talked to Raj and Raj said he would send a list. A week later, we received an email from Raj, the email said " Following are some Soil Compacting Contractors listed in Google Search", with one contractor listed below. End of story. Before hiring Raj, we did a lot of research on structural inspection and structural engineers in the region. I saw some negative reviews on Raj but the company is really well rated on Home Advisor, so I decided to give it a go. Looking back, I should have believed what people say in their negative experience.

Raj is professional, helpful, kind and trustworthy. He returned phone calls and e-mails propmtly, and provided well needed advice for our new construction project. He is a problem solver, and a good diplomat, with a "grandfather" attitude: children, there is a little problem, but don't worry, we will solve it....:) I definetly recoomend Raj and would use his service in the future.

I am a Real Estate Agent in Southern Maryland. I hired A S & R to do the structural assessment on a home that I had listed. Mr. Lal was professional and performed the structural assessment of a home that I was selling if Fort Washington. He was on time, courteous and helpful. I will certainly use his services again when needed. If you are in need of a Realtor, you can call me at (410) 989-3555 to answer any and all of your real estate related questions. Thanks!

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
