Building Surveying (House Inspections)
Our Chartered Surveyors are specifically trained in the process of diagnosing and analysing a particular problem or defect and recommending detailed specific repairs where required. We can also act as an expert witness for legal proceedings and also prepare detailed reports for management companies and building agents. The most common defects which appear to be a causing significant problems in today’s modern buildings include condensation, mould growth, damp penetration, cracking and poor workmanship.
A Snag List involves a detailed inspection of new properties to identify any specific problems or defects prior to purchasing or signing of contracts for closure of sale. This will also take into consideration all aspects of the property in relation to compliance with the Building Regulations. It is an ideal opportunity by the prospective purchaser to prepare a list of items that require repairs by the contractor. At K.V.Arthur Associates Ltd, we can if required, carry out re-inspections of the property to ensure that all the necessary work has been completed to our client’s satisfaction.
