Building Surveyor Services

NJC Building Consultancy Services can provide a qualified and highly experienced building surveyor to help you carefully check the condition of a property that you are in the process of purchasing.

We can carry out work and provide you with:

Residential building surveyor report

A building surveyor report, formerly referred to as a structural survey report is the most thorough and detailed report on the condition of a property that you can buy. We provide a bespoke report which relates to the property in question.

Our survey reports will also include a list of budget repair costs that can be both informative and be used to re-negotiate the purchase price of your proposed property (if necessary) which can ultimately save you money.

Our building surveyor reports also include advice on:

  • Structural movement, historic or on-going
  • Dampness
  • Timber decay and/or insect / rodent infestation
  • Previous structural alterations
  • Drainage condition
  • Problems that are likely to have a significant repair cost
  • Proposed plans for extensions, loft conversions, refurbishment etc.

If you need a building surveyor report, contact us today. We’d be delighted to help.

A building surveyor report can save thousands of pounds

Our full building surveys are bespoke and are carried out with due care and diligence which include a budget list of repairs for consideration which either can be used as a guide for the purchaser or even as a negotiating tool when purchasing. Our reports have often saves clients literally thousands of pounds and assisted then in budgeting for the repairs themselves or even walking away in some cases.

A property purchase for the majority of people has to be one of the biggest expenses they will incur in their lifetime!

All roofs are inspected with binoculars and/or inspected by ladder if at low-level. Where possible drain covers will be lifted to check for flow rates and any apparent issues, such as roots invasion and previous repairs.

The full building survey will take into account floors, walls, openings, weathering details, windows and doors, ceilings, roofs, structures, electrical and mechanical (visually), adaptions and extensions, etc.

The survey will include a visual inspection of the gardens, any outbuildings and boundaries.

Residential flat building surveyor report

A survey on residential flats always include an inspection of the main building, or block, because you will usually have an obligation to contribute towards the cost of the maintenance.

Our reports for flats also include advice on:

  • Structural movement, historic or on-going
  • Dampness
  • Timber decay and/or insect / rodent infestation
  • Previous structural alterations
  • Drainage condition
  • All problems that are likely to have a significant repair cost
  • Plans for refurbishment etc.

Commercial building surveyor reports

We specialise in undertaking building surveys on all types of commercial properties, including:

  • Shops
  • Offices
  • Industrial premises
  • Mixed use

The preparation of a commercial survey report sometimes referred to as an acquisition report differs in several ways to a residential survey.

Our commercial building surveyor reports include sections covering:

  • Lease repairing covenants
  • Length of lease
  • Liability for dilapidations and repairs

We can give advice on any adaptations the client wishes to carry out prior to occupation which may be a requisite for when the licence for alteration is prepared.

Depending on the size of the building(s) we may hire an access crane to view the roof. We may also use the services of drain specialists, mechanical and electrical engineers, where necessary.

The cost of our commercial surveys varies according to the size and type of building and the specific client requirements, and we therefore quote fees on an individual basis.

At last a meaningful building surveyor report!

At last a meaningful building surveyor report! I would highly recommend NJC Services.

They carried out a very detailed and useful structural survey for us that not only pointed out key issues but also provided a useful overview of associated costs which was essential in helping with a price renegotiation.

It was in complete contrast to the report from another building surveyor we’d received for an earlier purchase which could have been written by anyone.

NJC – comprehensive, convenient, comparable on cost and very pleasant to deal with.
