Highlights

read more › Most of our work is within the greater London area, with a mix of modern and period property. Many of the properties we have provided advice on are in conservation areas and many of them are listed. We feel it is important to ensure repairs and alteration are undertaken sympathetically making use of both traditional workmanship and materials, and where possible incorporating the use of modern methods and products where they can be integrated to the overall benefit of the building both historically and aesthetically.

Taking good care of our buildings is essential, especially when it is possible that as many as 80% of the buildings that stand today will still be around in 2050. We work hand in hand with property management companies helping them prepare a maintenance plan, looking for opportunities to consider and implement measures that would improve the sustainability of a property. Implementing appropriate improvements as part of a planned maintenance programme could help to spread the cost of the works and mitigate any potential risks.

Our experience enables us to prepare the correct specification for remedial works and to monitor the works through to completion.

Regular inspection of the ongoing works, certification of interim payments, monitoring and checking on the cost, quality and final account negotiations.

We have developed effective organisational skills over many years, guiding our clients to make informed decisions and achieve their objectives. We have the technical knowledge and experience gained over time and can work through the various stages of developing a brief, preparing specifications of work, obtaining tenders and administering the project at site level through to practical completion.

Excavations within 3 or 6 metres and to a depth lower than the adjoining owner's (the neighbour's) foundations. We can provide advice and the expertise on what to expect, how the owners' property can be protected during the works, dealing with all aspects of sending and receiving notices served under the Act and the preparation of party wall awards.

read more › There can be many reasons why building surveys are undertaken, including the identifying of defects, determining the general condition for planned maintenance, to determine if a property is suitable for adaptation or alteration, or for a client wishing to purchase a property. We can draw on our experience to undertake inspections of all types of residential property, to suit our clients' requirements which can require us to respond quickly when often, time is of the essence. When it comes to buying a residential property however, recent statistics from a study conducted by chartered surveyors e.surv, show that an astonishing 8 out of 10 prospective home buyers are not commissioning a detailed survey prior to completion of the sale.
