Surveys

When purchasing or leasing a building, or in the planning stage of schemes of redevelopment, alteration and extension, a comprehensive building survey is essential. The report needs to clearly identify defects and propose remedies so that the client can make a reasoned decision on whether to proceed with purchase or acquisition. Reasoned and balanced reports provide the client with information as to the extent of works required to bring property in disrepair into good condition and the likely associated costs of such works.

Both Mark Halliday and Mark West have over 20 years of professional survey experience having inspected numerous buildings of varying type, age and size. A particular specialism is the survey of Listed Buildings, Country Homes and Estates although Building Surveys, RICS Homebuyer Reports and Condition Survey Reports are also regularly undertaken on standard housing stock.

Both Mark Halliday and Mark West are RICS Registered Valuers.
