Building Surveys

If you’re buying a house, commercial building or taking a long lease on commercial premises, it is essential that you fully understand the condition of the property and your potential liability for the cost of repairs.

Dilapidations Advice

Dilapidations are a critical issue for both Landlords and Tenants of commercial buildings. Read more about our dilapidations advice.

Party Wall Advice

The Party Wall Act sets out a formal process that must be followed. It defines two main parties; the building owner carrying out the works and the adjoining owner who is the neighbour that requires notification.

Our Surveys

Our surveys include a thorough inspection on the property and a visual inspection of all accessible parts. The roof will be inspected from ground floor level externally and from within any accessible roof spaces. If necessary, chimneys, gutters and fascia boards that are only visible externally may be inspected using binoculars. The survey will otherwise check all accessible parts of the property in particular, looking for evidence of structural movement, dampness or timber decay as these are the most significant issues that may affect a property and generally any other issue which is of relevance to the potential purchasers or occupier.
