What do the circles and ovals mean in our structural building surveys?
Having an independent building survey is essential
Unlike many Surveyors we are experienced in dealing with historic, Listed Buildings and properties within conservation areas. We like to meet you at the property during the survey to explain anything that you do not understand regarding the property and its characteristics. We are also more than happy to talk to you afterwards about the report. Please free phone 0800 298 5424 for a friendly chat with one of our surveyors.
At 1stAssociated.co.uk we have helped our clients over the many years we have been surveying properties with many property problems. An issue we recently helped our client with was after an unfortunate leak occurred whilst they were on holiday which caused extensive damage throughout the entirety of their beautiful older style property.
Our client was fortunate to be covered with buildings insurance and made a claim for the damage caused by the leak. To resolve the leak the property had to be dried out thoroughly, plaster ceilings and walls had to be stripped back and re-plastered as well as parquet flooring and carpet being replaced.
The builders carried out work in accordance with the insurance companies instructions adhering to their loss adjustor's findings.
Dampness in the property
Sadly for our client they some found dampness was visible in the property even though the builders had completed the extensive refurbishment work which was of great concern. As independent Surveyors our client asked us to prepare an independent expert witness report on the dampness to ascertain why the dampness was occurring and thereby enable them to negotiate with their insurance company who were, we understand, refusing to help.
Dampness in older style properties
Lime every time
Negotiations with insurance claim
It is always good to hear a client's happy conclusion to a property issue which has unfortunately caused property issues.
Independent Surveyors are independent and as such can help with many different property issues some of which may go to court.
We have written an article with regard to insurance companies carrying out work in the way that is best for them and not necessarily best for you the client and how often the person who has the insurance company problem feels they have to go with the insurance companies' experts. However, in our opinion, these experts are employed time and time again by the insurance company because they look at the problems with the insurance companies' point of view to protect the insurance companies' interest.
Independent Building Surveyors
We are experienced independent building Surveyors who are knowledgeable in carrying out structural surveys on all types, styles and eras of buildings.
