SPECIALIST INVESTIGATION

An elemental or specialist investigation will be carried out where concern exists over specific parts of, or defects in, a property.  Examples of this specialist work are the detailed study of movement, cracking, bulging, timber decay or the testing of building services such as electrical wiring, gas installations, foul water drainage.

The scope of this type of investigation will be specific to each individual job and, if necessary, the brief may be altered as findings on site dictate.

A big thank-you to all the hard work that you have done for us

HOMEBUYERS SURVEY

A property purchase survey will advise on factual information on significant aspects of the condition of the property to the prospective purchaser.

The survey will be carried out under conditions (or terms) of engagement agreed with the professional doing the work.  For straightforward properties where the client requires no out-of-the-ordinary advice, the report may be in a standard format.

Minor items of disrepair which do not materially affect the value will not normally be reported.  Whether services (electrics, gas, drainage) will be tested or not will be agreed between the parties beforehand. 

BUILDING SURVEY

A building survey is an investigation and assessment of the construction and condition of a building. The survey will generally include the structure, fabric, finishes and grounds; the exposure and testing of services are not usually covered.

The extent of the survey will be subject to specific agreement between the professional and the client, and advice on costs of repair will be subject to such agreement.  The report will include reference to visible defects and guidance, as appropriate, on maintenance and remedial measures.

The report may recommend that specialist and elemental investigations are undertaken or other specialist advice obtained relating to specific issues.

 

COMMERCIAL SURVEYS

A building survey as previously described taking into account the specialist installations in offices, shops or warehouses and any shared services with other users.

SCHEDULES OF DILAPIDATION'S
