Planning Applications and Party Wall matters

One of our Henley surveyors can advise you and point you in the right direction with your planning application needs, with either works to your existing property, or for a new-build construction. Professional support with a planning application facilitates a smooth and efficient application process. As part of the survey process, we can also advise on building regulation matters and other essential matters such as works under the party wall act. Your surveyor can also conduct a planning search if you need to know the planning history for a property.

Measured Surveys

A building surveyor can prepare highly accurate plans of the existing layout of a property and the elevations for you. These can include precise floor area readings.

Specific defect report

Where there are known or suspected issues at a property, you will be advised to have further investigations carried out. This may take the form of a specific defect report, which will give you an in-depth inspection and assessment of the problem.

Party Wall matters

If you need to serve notice under the party wall act or have received a notice from your neighbour who is undertaking an extension or a shared wall, one of our surveyors can help to guide you through this process.

Schedule of condition

If boundary work is planned, a schedule of condition can be prepared as a precaution in case the work impacts the neighbouring property. The schedule of condition records the state of the neighbouring property prior to any work commencing, so it is easy to identify any damage caused by the works.

Boundary disputes

A building surveyor can provide advice and support if you are involved in a boundary dispute with a neighbour.

Construction and maintenance projects

Your building surveyor can oversee major building work projects. Whether you are extending your existing property or planning a new build, a building surveyor can manage the project for you, liaising with you and the building contractors, providing regular progress reports, and supporting the smooth running of the project. We can also oversee major maintenance projects, such as roof or window replacement, and refurbishment works.

Homebuyer report: RICS Level 2 Survey

The RICS Level 2 survey involves a thorough inspection of a property to ensure that you are clear about its condition before you decide whether to buy it. The building surveyor will conduct an assessment of the property, including:

Building Survey

You may have heard the Building Survey referred to as the RICS Level 3 survey or a full structural survey. This is the most comprehensive of the property surveys we conduct. In addition to providing the coverage of the Homebuyer report, the building surveyor will give a more in-depth inspection and analysis of the structure of the building. This may include testing as well as a visual inspection. The building surveyor may move furniture and other items in order to check areas which are concealed but can still be accessed without damaging the fabric of the building. For example, furniture may be moved in order to check for mould or other signs of damp on walls. Where there are suspected defects which cannot be checked in a non-destructive survey, the building surveyor will list these in the survey report.

A building survey means that you are not buying “blind”. It allows you to make an informed decision, avoiding the risk of discovering issues with the property once you already own the property.
