Building Surveys

Liabilities arising from the design and physical condition of a building can be significant and may have a major impact on parties who become owners or occupiers of buildings, who should seek an independent assessment of the property as part of their due diligence process.

A building survey involves a visual inspection of a building and, where appropriate, its services installations, to provide an assessment of such liabilities in the context of a particular property transaction.

Stewart Watson has a broad experience of undertaking building surveys throughout the United Kingdom on a wide range of building types on behalf of purchasers, vendors and occupiers.  Our input extends to coordinating specialist advice such as environmental analysis and deleterious material testing.
