Building Surveys • Knowledge

You’ll have the knowledge to make informed decisions with detailed reports on offices, warehouses, auction properties, listed buildings and dwellings. We cover all aspects of your building and provide an explanation of the key defects, alongside recommendations on how to repair. We include costs, which arms you with a benchmark to negotiate any purchases.

Building Surveys

Your survey will be tailored to meet your needs and performed by our Chartered Building Surveyors.  Whether you have a specific defect mentioned in a lender’s survey, concerns over the entire structure, or plans to develop and convert a property; we can arm you with the advice you need to make an informed decision.

ECO Assessments

If you meet the criteria, our MRICS Chartered Surveyors work with installers to officially confirm your building will benefit from the energy efficiency measures proposed.  Our reports comply with all the requirements considered when awarding funding under ECO legislation, to help improve your standing.

Technical Due Diligence

You can mitigate your exposure to development and funding risk. Our technical experts meticulously investigate and report on your programme, providing a completely tailored service. Property decisions have long-lasting impact, so it’s vital to know the potential risks, costs and issues you may face before you begin.

Structural Assessments

You’ll always know what you’re getting into with qualified advice on the major or minor defects of a building and whether it is structurally sound. Our reports detail any necessary work alongside costs, which you can use to secure a reasonable price when assessing quotes for any work you choose to carry out. 

Feasibility Studies

You can call us at any stage of your project for early and detailed analysis of the issues that influence your plans. Our in-house surveyors report on the feasibility of the schemes you are considering during design and development of new builds, or restoration and maintenance of existing properties.

Expert Reports & Expert Witnesses

Our Chartered Surveyors are experienced in acting as Expert Witnesses for either party when a dispute has arisen. You can appoint us to provide unbiased opinion on the contested issues, after thoroughly reviewing the material evidence. We draw on years of practice to provide the report required to defend your position.

Knights Solicitors LLP
I was very impressed by you and your company’s professionalism, attention to detail and responsiveness. Far too often in the area I work in, it feels like clients are passed from one department or person to another with unnecessary delays – on the contrary, with j. c. associates,
