Building surveys for purchasers.......


We carry out Building Surveys for clients wishing to purchase a domestic or commercial building.  Domestic building surveys are conducted using the professional guidance “surveys of residential property 3rd edition” published by the RICS.


There are three levels of survey included in that guidance, but we will discuss with you as to which is most appropriate for the building you are planning to buy.


We cover Dorset, Somerset, Bristol, Devon and parts of Cornwall.


We have expert knowledge concerning listed and historic buildings.

Please call or email to discuss the building and we will provide a fee quote for the service required.

Project Management

Managing Building projects from a few thousand to several million we understand that different clients require the level of service and support that is right for them.


Many clients like to be very involved with the evolution of their project and this is something we help to manage to the benefit of the project and their aim.


Building projects contain hundreds of individual parts being installed by many different trades people, ensuring that they all come together to provide the whole is something we are skilled in.


We have links with the Chartered Institute of Building which allows us to integrate with a contractor in more meaningful way to ensure clients get the best advice during construction.

 

Listed & Period buildings

We have considerable experience working with listed buildings and can help with planning, listed building consent, building regulations, grant application, repair technique and specification.


Conservation and repair of listed buildings following fire is a specialist area we have experience in from grand buildings to vernacular cob/earth and thatch buildings following roof fires.  We have dealt with partial or complete loss in these circumstances and can advise accordingly.

Dispute resolution

We are accredited by the London School of Mediation and conduct dispute resolution.

 

If you have found yourself in a construction or property dispute or even if you think it might be a possibility, please call us and we can help you avoid or resolve what's at issue.  Construction disputes are notoriously expensive and often cost far more than the sum disputed.  They are seldom clear cut and leave both parties at risk of the considerable cost of litigation.


Don’t make the mistake of thinking your case is clear cut and that justice will prevail, you will be surprised how much that justice will cost.
