Historic Building Surveys
The ability to understand how a building works and has been constructed is integral in being able to undertake and complete a thorough building survey. The expertise of Chartered Building Surveyors and a Building Conservation Surveyor helps us to understand historic buildings and structures in depth. This enables a thorough report to be produced that will detail how the building has been constructed, the techniques used, any defects that are apparent, and the most sympathetic methods of repair and/or restoration which benefits you as the Client.
A Condition Survey will look into all of the individual issues, including the structure and damp. The report is usually prepared on a room by room basis and gives a full and thorough record of the building and its individual rooms. This report is of significant benefit if maintenance is planned for the building and advice is needed on where priorities should be given. The other significant time this should be used is in conjunction with a new lease as it will determine the condition of the property at the commencement of the lease. This report is also provided with plans and photographs where it is required to demonstrate an issue with the building.
