London Chartered Surveyors provide Full Structural Building Surveys which are vital when a very detailed report is needed. As building surveyors in London, we examine the construction and structure of the property and then we will undertake a surface examination of the associated utility services.
Restrictions such as limited roof access or fitted floor coverings may prevent us completing a full inspection but within these limitations, we will complete the full structural building survey and present you with your report.
We check the following during every building survey:
- Internally: Woodworm and rot, dampness and condensation, ceilings, walls and floors, chimney breasts and joinery
- Externally: Roof, chimneys, gutters, main walls, windows and doors, drainage and boundaries
- Roof space: Full inspection of the roof
- Garages, Conservatories and brick outbuildings
RICS Building Surveys
RICS categorises a Building Survey at level 3. This is the most detailed survey available. It considers potential problems hidden by flaws, provides an outline of repair options and the likely consequences of inactivity as well as outlining the visible defects.
If you are planning to have any type of extension to your property, once the sale goes through, you may want us to include a feasibility report at the likelihood that planning permission will be given. We can also assist in prioritising works and planning maintenance.
A valuation isn’t normally included in a building survey however, if you do require one, please ask.
Other useful sectors within the building survey report include issues for your legal adviser, noise and disturbance, hazardous materials, energy efficiency, means of escape and any health & safety concerns you are worried about.
