We are one of the leading firms of building surveyors for residential property in London, offering a rapid turnaround with efficient and competitive service. What is a survey? The object of a survey is to tell you about the condition of the property. Assuming the relevant areas are accessible for inspection, we can tell you about the state of the roofs, walls, floors, ceilings, partitions, windows and doors.

The Party Wall etc, Act 1996 gives the owner of a building certain rights to carry out works to a party wall. However, the building owner must serve a notice on his next-door neighbour informing him of his intention. There is always the possibility that some damage may be caused to the adjoining owners property, and the adjoining owner, therefore has the right to appoint his own surveyor to look after his interests.

By preparing a fair and reasonable schedule of dilapidations, this can be achieved. We can prepare interim, final and terminal schedules and negotiate reasonable settlement. Are you considering exercising a break clause and need to know where you stand on dilapidations? Have you been served with an interim or terminal schedule of dilapidations and feel it is over-inflated?

An owner maybe considering placing their premises on the market and would like to know of any repairs that may be required in order to achieve a smooth acquisition. Are you acquiring a new lease or taking on an assignment of an existing lease? We can advise you on the current condition of the premises, as well as likely future repairs that may be required.

The EPC is part of a series of measures introduced across Europe to reflect legislation which will help cut buildings' carbon emissions and tackle climate change. F.A.Q. How long is an EPC valid for? All EPCs are valid for 10 years. However, if the property has had structural changes since the previous EPC i.e. an extension, then a new EPC will need to be produced for renting/selling purposes.
