Buying a property is probably the biggest financial decision you are likely to make. A professional survey carried out by a Chartered Building Surveyor, will help you reach an informed decision about the overall condition of a property.
It is important to recognise that a Mortgage Valuation Report is usually prepared on behalf of the lender and as such, serves to establish the value and type of the property.
This form of survey is suitable for all types of property and provides a much more detailed assessment of both construction and condition.
A building survey report will include extensive technical information relating to a property and will consider those defects and problems which are likely to affect the both market value and the future maintenance of the property.
A building survey report would not normally include a valuation, unless agreed otherwise.
Acting for either landlord or tenant, we can provide professional advice and prepare and, if appropriate, contest interim or terminal schedules of dilapidations.
We can prepare detailed schedules of condition to record the condition of a property prior to works commencing or occupation under a lease.
Condition surveys can be used to establish both current and future maintenance liabilities for a building and using this information; we can advise and assist in the preparation and administration of planned maintenance programmes.
We are able to undertake fully detailed measured and level surveys of both buildings and sites and present record information in either digital or paper formats.
