A survey is a kind of ‘health check’ for buildings and will advise you of any potential problems with the building. It is designed to help you make a more informed decision and offer reassurance and real peace of mind.
If you are buying a property, you should have a survey done before you enter into a contract (or before making an offer, if you intend to buy at auction). A survey can actually save you money. If there are serious problems, you can often renegotiate the sale price of the property to reflect the cost of necessary repairs. We include Valuation with this service.
Party Wall Act
If you intend to carry out construction or alterations which involve:
* Work on a wall, floor or ceiling shared with another property
* Building on the boundary with another property
* Excavating within 6 metres of an adjoining building
You may find that the work falls within the scope of this Act. If it does, you must serve statutory Notices on all those defined by the Act as adjoining owners. This is quite separate from any need for planning permission and/or building regulation approval.
Far more boundary disputes occur between the owners of two adjacent residential properties than between commercial neighbours. Residential landowners tend to tackle their disputes emotionally, seeking perceived justice rather than rationally evaluating the situation considering amicable solutions to the dispute. This is where the experienced Boundary Surveyor comes into their own and can save clients many thousands in legal fees by good arbitration based upon sound legal principles.
Project Management in Ringwood and Christchurch areas.
We assess every building project, whether large or small. To avoid the pitfalls of finding reliable and capable contractors, encountering financial conflict and the time consuming organisation of tradesmen, FYR clients find it beneficial to employ our building and construction project management services to ensure a smooth process from concept to delivery.
We will work closely with each client through all phases of their project; from pre-construction to design, to actual construction work and post construction requirements to guarantee faultless service from beginning to end.
We offer this specialist service by an experienced RMAPS CDM Coordinator who boasts Procter and Gamble and TNT as regular clients.
We can provide Fire Assessments and Fire Engineering advice by experienced personnel to comply with the Fire Safety Order 2005.
