Building Surveys

What is a Building Survey?

A building survey is a report to evaluate the condition of any property after a comprehensive inspection has been carried out.

Building surveyors tend to carry out the surveys and are responsible for the design, contraction and management of any real estate. This includes the undertaking of a range of services for clients when acquiring a new building or even changing an existing asset.

A survey can be carried out on any potential property. Some of the more common ones include:

  • Properties that are more than 50 years old
  • A building that has plans to be renovated or modified in some way
  • Buildings that have recently been renovated to ensure they are structurally correct
  • Any listed Buildings

Here at Marshall Property Construction, we offer a number of services:

  • Carry out measured surveys
  • Asses and advice on building maintenance plans
  • Draw up compliance
  • Condition or dilapidation reports
  • Advise on party wall matters
  • Recommend actions and solutions

Surveys are important for a number of different reasons as they give you the information you need to know before you invest in a property and things start to go wrong. A survey is very much your safety net and therefore it is very important they are carried out to the highest of standards.

Some of the issues surveys can identify include:

  • Identifying any problems with the foundations
  • Asbestos
  • Damp or rotting to walls or roof
  • Certain structural defects
  • Damage to underlying materials

The final report will list any major and minor defects that may be compromising the structure of an estate. If you are in need of a survey today, please contact us, we offer a comprehensive callout service throughout the UK.
