Pre-acquisition Surveys

Whether you are a first-time home-buyer or a large corporate business, the purchase of a property is most likely to be your biggest investment. Therefore, we believe it is always a wise precaution to commission this type of survey prior to you committing to purchase your property/building. This can lead to the identification of building defects that you may not have been aware of when you viewed the property. Consequently, a Pre-acquisition survey can put you in a stronger position during negotiations to purchase the property. We have extensive experience in undertaking these surveys on all types of commercial, industrial, retail and residential properties.

Specific Defect Reports

We undertake the analysis of specific defects on all types of buildings. Subsequently, we provide Specific Defect reports which give our interpretation on why the defect/s has occurred, and also identify the recommended works to remedy the building defect/s.

Planned Maintenance Audits

This service is provided to those who want to take a pro-active approach to maintain their buildings. Initially a survey is carried out on the building, or buildings, to ascertain its/their condition. Consequently, immediate necessary repairs and health & safety issues are determined and acted upon. In addition, medium and long term maintenance issues are prioritised and costed. Furthermore, the anticipated life span of the building elements/components is given with replacement costs.

Stock Condition Surveys

The bodies that commission these types of surveys are usually local authorities and Housing Associations. They are undertaken to identify the current condition of their housing stock for a number of reasons i.e. to ascertain what immediate reactive repairs are required, planned maintenance issues, and to assist in the preparation of tender documentation for capital projects.
