Freephone an Independent Surveyor
We are independent Surveyors who pride ourselves on our high standards of work. We can offer Building Surveys also known as Structural Surveys and Home Buyers Reports. We can also offer you a Specific Defects Report also known as an Engineers Reports. We carry out Independent Valuations but please note these are not for bank lending but are to advise you how much we feel the property is really worth.
If you have a property problem we may even already have written an article on it (like this article we have written on ceiling lights) and we would refer you to the many articles we have on our home page www.1stAssociated.co.uk
Please Free phone us on 0800 298 5424 for a friendly chat.
What do the circles and ovals in our reports and articles mean?
Older style ceiling lights can be a fire risk
Ceiling lights as a surveyor should see them
A good surveyor will investigate the roof space and as such should be able to see the lights from within the roof.
Other articles that may be of interest
The following articles may be of interest to you, but don't forget that we have written articles on many different areas of property:
Building surveyors are not electricians but...
Does the property need to be re-wired?
Generally we will always be able to advise whether a property needs re-wiring or not; the costs for this can run into many thousands of pounds. Obviously specific advice would come from a qualified electrician carrying out tests to the Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) standard also known as a periodic test and various other names throughout the country.
Compare our Building Surveys but don't compare Apples with Thursdays
If you are looking for a Building Survey or a Specific Defect Report on a certain problem whether that be on a home, house or commercial property we believe as Building Surveyors we have a wealth of experience and expertise that we can use to help you.
We have carried out many surveys on all styles and eras of property although we appreciate fully that all properties are unique and all of our surveys are tailor made for you and your property. We are happy to email you example surveys.
Why have an Independent Survey with us?
We always recommend you have an independent building survey as this will highlight any property problems. Caveat emptor means buyer beware and is why you need to have a building survey to find out if there are any problems within the property. The estate agent certainly will not advise you of any but we most definitely will!
Remember the Building Surveyor that you employ will be the only person working for you with your interests at heart.
We have developed our surveys over many years, in fact several decades. We have listened to feedback from our clients and amended and altered our surveys to make them easy to read and describe issues clearly. The key factor we believe is that our surveys are easy to understand in plain English.
If you are looking for commercial property, whether it is freehold or leasehold, we would recommend a survey as this will prevent dilapidations claims in the long run. You may wish to look at our Dilapidations Website at www.DilapsHelp.com and for Disputes go to our Disputes Help site www.DisputesHelp.com , both of which we have been advised are very helpful!
We hope you found the article of use and if you have any experiences that you feel should be added to this article that would benefit others, or you feel that some of the information that we have put is wrong then please do not hesitate to contact us (we are only human).
