The building Surveyor needs to know what they are looking at
This feature looks at the commercial buildings that have been converted into one or two bedroom properties that you may see and representative items that Surveyors will spot for you although we do have to say that nothing is as good as getting your own structural survey and meeting your own Surveyor at the property. We are evidently promoting our services 1stAssociated.co.uk call us for a friendly chat on 0800 298 5424.
Conversion of commercial buildings
With reorganisation and some buildings becoming vacant they make excellent conversion candidates.
The photographs below show a hospital that has been converted into one and two bedroom properties complete with their own secure gated area. This development has been carried out well but of course you do have to pay for the services; the conversion depicted in the photographs below gives a safe environment including its own gym within the grounds.
Large buildings such as public houses also lend themselves to being converted. Sometimes public houses can produce great places to live due to the grand architecture of the original building. However on occasion the one and two bedroom properties rooms are within 1960s extensions for toilets and function rooms etc which are not so grand!
Good design could mean the adding of a roof window or something similar to give a feature.
Pub conversions can make great living space; we have recently looked at a pub conversion which was one of the smallest one bedroom apartments that we have seen for a long time. The conversion had been carried out very well and was in what used to be the function room of the pub which worked excellently with the higher than average ceilings. In fact the problem areas were at first not obvious and related to the large flat roof areas in the dormer window conversions and also to the rear windows which looked over someone else's garden.
These are only problems if you are not aware of them when you are buying a property as we believe buying a property with your eyes wide open is one of the benefits of having a Surveyor who is working for you.
A warehouse conversion is typified by their large, high room spaces and often they are also typically defined by being built on a structural frame. As such warehouse converted properties are more akin to commercial property in need of a commercial Surveyor who understands the structure as we do.
When the property is a conversion we look further than the conversion itself
