When carrying out a Building Survey, our expert Chartered Surveyors will undertake a thorough internal and external investigation of all accessible areas of the building, and provide a detailed review of its construction and condition with the use of a traffic light system for condition severity. We can also tailor Building Surveys to address any specific concerns or requirements you may have.

The survey will be conducted by a RICS-qualified Chartered Surveyor, and will provide information about the construction of the building, highlight serious (or potentially serious) defects which should be urgently addressed, and suggest areas that would benefit from further inspection. At Able Surveyors, we have over 25 years' surveying experience and have carried out RICS Condition Reports all across London and the Home Counties.

Suitable for the majority of UK properties, its standardised structure and clear, jargon-free language makes it easy for buyers to understand the structural defects that are present. The survey includes a detailed inspection of the interior and exterior features of a property and includes associated utilities and some aspects of the grounds. The methods used to investigate the property are non-invasive and are tailored towards conventionally-built properties.

Damp can be a major problem for many buildings, both old and new, and accurately identifying the extent and cause of damp is the first step towards managing and rectifying this potentially serious building defect. If your Building Survey has flagged up damp, or your property has a known problem in this area, a Damp Report is a vital tool to help you address the problem.

Defined as a report which documents the defects and general condition of a building, a Schedule of Dilapidation identifies whether there have been any breaches of the Lease while the building was occupied. Commercial leases typically include dilapidation clauses which outline whether the landlord or tenant is liable for a certain issue. These are largely included to clarify who is responsible for repairing and maintaining the building.

As you may already be aware as the owner of a leasehold property, the shorter your lease gets, the less value it will hold. As you approach the final years of your lease, its value will dramatically decrease and continue to fall over time. Furthermore, having a current lease with a total 70 years or less will also significantly reduce your chance of lenders supporting your property.
