Building Surveys by Glenside

No matter what you are looking for, a building survey is vital to avoid any unexpected costs during the renovation process.

A survey is intended to be a detailed inspection of a property's condition. They may only be optional, but they can help you avoid expensive and unwanted surprises, such as a rewiring job you had no idea would need doing.

A building survey is a thorough inspection that can take up to a day to complete, with the final report available within the previously agreed timescale.

Aspects of a building survey can include:

  • Results of tests for damp in the walls
  • Alterations to supporting walls
  • Large trees close to the property
  • The conditions of existing damp proofing, insulation and advice on non-tested drainage
  • Information on controlled or hazardous materials found within the structure of the building, i.e. Asbestos.

If you are looking to restyle your workplace it is advisable to employ the expert knowledge of a surveyor before completion, to ensure that you are receiving independent advice on the true condition of your potential property.

Reasons for having a survey done:

  • Indicates future maintenance issues to help you plan future expenditure.
  • The location and significant environmental issues are reported on.
  • Provides information about energy saving matters.
  • Indicates potential health and safety issues.
  • Recommends further investigations where necessary.

The comprehensive investigation that a building survey involves is highly specific in respect to your commercial needs and will put you in the best possible situation to progress with your project.
