Building surveys

Our experienced chartered building surveyors carry out a full range of surveys across buildings of all types and scales. From pre-acquisition and condition surveys for individual properties to the inspection of whole portfolios, as well as ad-hoc surveys and advice focused on specific issues.

Dilapidation and Schedules of Condition

Our team have the experience and expertise to assess and investigate claims for dilapidations for all types of buildings – providing sound advice to clients on the merits of disputed cases. We prepare and negotiate Schedules of Dilapidation, including pricing the schedule and settling the claim. As well as Schedules of Condition to assess a property at a specific point in time, such as at the commencement of ownership or leasing.

Party Wall matters

With a detailed understanding of the Party Wall Etc.

We then negotiate and issue Party Wall Awards.

Defect analysis

Our varied experience across many different building types and construction methods gives us the insight needed to carry out detailed building pathology and analyse any building defects. We accurately pinpoint the cause and potential effects of any issue found, before recommending effective and practical solutions to put them right.

Our expert witness reports provide expert, unbiased advice on construction and property-related disputes. Addressing issues such as professional negligence in surveys, design and administration, defective building works, and buildings in disrepair.
