Services

Surveyors & Engineers - Chartered Surveyor

Staff

Our staff are based in our Head Office in Staffordshire in the Midlands, from there we offer national coverage for all of our surveying services.

Area of Business

Building Survey:
To determining the condition of a property, identifying and reporting on the defects, highlighting the most serious where urgent works maybe required.

Condition Survey:
To determining the condition of a property, identifying, reporting and highlighting on all of the current defects where works are required. This type of survey can also be useful as a negotiating tool prior entering into a lease/tenancy agreement.

Dilapidation surveys:
To determining the condition of a property, identifying, reporting and highlighting on all of the current defects where works are required. When there is a legal liability for a property's state of disrepair this document can be crossed checked against previous reports or details contained within the lease agreement.

Asbestos Surveys:
To discover if the materials and the fabrics of the property contain asbestos.

Commercial EPC Surveys:
To give a property a current rating from A to G based on its energy efficiency.

Drafting Service:
Preparing of plans and drawings etc.

The only way to reach an informed decision on such an important investment as a home or business premises is to have a professional Building Survey carried out on the property. By doing this before you decide to go ahead and commit yourself, can help minimize the risk and cost of repair works.

One of the most common shortcuts is skimping on the Building Survey. Both buyers and tenants tend to rely on the information provided by the valuers, the seller or by the letting agent when deciding whether or not to purchase or lease a property.

This action, in a fairly new property is probably acceptable, however when it comes to an older property or a property of an unusual construction, this is a big gamble and UK Surveyors would never advise this course of action.

Spending extra money on a Building Survey may seem a wasted expense when you are about to take on a property, however when you consider how much money it could save you in the long run it is money well spent. Remember a Professional Independent Surveyors Report can be used to negotiate with the seller or Landlord.

You could purchase or lease a property without instructing a Building Survey to be carried out, then later discover that the entire roof needs restructuring, the repair for this would then cost you thousands. Once the contracts have been signed and exchanged the landlord or vendor is no longer liable for that property or repairs; you are!

A Building Survey is the best report to open your eyes to all potential or actual problems in your new premises. Our Building Surveys are an in depth report on all areas within the property reporting on all major and minor defects, it looks at the property from top to bottom, inside and out. Within the report you will be advised on any areas that concern our Surveyor, why they feel there is a problem and in most instances what they feel needs to be done in order to rectify them.

At UK Surveyors you are able to ask the Surveyor who carried out your survey to advise you on specific areas of concern or perhaps alterations or extensions that you may be considering within the Survey.

To do without the services of a Building Surveyor may well prove to be a false economy, it could easily save you money if faults are revealed which enable you to re-negotiate a price reduction with the landlord or seller, if the property is poor value for money or requires substantial repair and maintenance, it may prevent you from making a serious financial mistake.

Commissioning your own survey is the simple, economical way to avoid unpleasant and perhaps costly surprises after moving in and should be viewed as an investment.
