Acquisition Surveys

Building Surveys

The building survey is an in-depth survey to identify defects to the property, together with concluding reports that detail the estimated costs for the repair and renewal expenditure likely to be required with any property investment.

Schedule of Condition

In order to limit future repairing liabilities, we can produce a detailed schedule of condition of the whole property, or selected elements, and obtain agreement with opposing surveyors. Condition surveys can be undertaken prior to redevelopment or agreement to lease, to protect developers, landlords, tenants, construction companies and adjoining owners.

Measured Surveys

Measured surveys are usually undertaken to provide the client with accurate plans and elevations of their premises.

This type of service is a critical aid in any design development, providing a visual representation from which alteration, renovation or repair can be considered, as well as a suitable basis for planning application submissions. The plans will also assist in maximising the effective use of the available space and our 3D capabilities will enhance the understanding of the proposed design options.

Structural Surveys

This is a comprehensive survey that will examine all aspects of the building structure, identifying potential problems and building defects. Once the survey has been completed, the client will receive a detailed report which will identify any structural issues found together with options and costs associated with the proposed remedial work.

Planned Maintenance

A cost effective approach to building maintenance protects property values and efficiency. We would undertake a full condition survey of the building and identify all items of disrepair to the building fabric and shortcomings in building services installations. Depending on the requirements of our client, we can produce a fully priced Schedule of Works with planned action dates, allowing clients to accurately budget for building repairs and improvements in the future. Maintenance schedules can be tailored to a client’s specific needs whether it is the building envelope or the whole property.

Building Insurance Matters

We have expertise in producing detailed building reinstatement valuations for property owners. We also provide services in relation to claims or reinstatements, as required under an insurance policy. Our surveyors are experienced in negotiating with both loss adjusters and insurance companies.
