CHARTERED BUILDING SURVEYING SERVICES

BUILDING SURVEYING

We offer full building surveys for residential and commercial buildings.  Our report is presented with repair, maintenance and running costs of the building for a period of up to 20 years from purchase.  ARS (London) Ltd also offer a verbal report within 24 hours of inspection, conferring with solicitor and conveyancer if required.

We have the knowledge and expertise to report on period properties and listed buildings. 

BUILDING PATHOLOGY

BUILDING PATHPOLOGY

Our building pathology services cover the insurance, residential and commercial sectors.  We take a measured and scientific approach to our building pathology inspections.  We report in such a way that the end user is fully understanding and aware of the defects and building issues that are reported on site and importantly the cause and cost to rectify.

SCHEDULES OF CONDITION

SCHEDULE OF CONDITONS

We can provide detailed and prescriptive written / photographic schedules of condition. A schedule of condition is carried out to determine the exact condition of the building and its main elements at the date of inspection. It is important to accurately record the condition of a building so that there is a benchmark for the property and its state of repair and records of defects at a given date.

A schedule of condition is particularly important for both landlord and tenant when entering into new lease agreements or negotiating a lease renewal.
