Structural Elements Surveys

Why use Andrews Eades for your Structural Elements Surveys?

A structural elements survey is a type of pre-purchase survey but with a reduced scope when compared to our building surveys and HBRs. It will cover the main building elements such as floors, walls, roofs, chimneys and staircases, but not include items like joinery, finishes, outbuildings and grounds. Such a survey is ideal if you want to ensure a property you’re purchasing is structurally sound but you are not concerned about the fixtures and fittings as you plan to fully refurbish the property.

Our structural elements surveys are bespoke to each property and are not constrained by a set pro-forma report structure. Therefore, they are suitable for every type and age of property.

Every surveyor in our team that undertakes structural elements surveys is a chartered building surveyor registered with the RICS. Therefore, they have a high level of experience and knowledge in all building types.

  • Detailed bespoke structural elements surveys.
  • All property types and ages catered for.
  • Gives peace of mind that a building is structurally sound before agreeing final purchase details.
  • Highly experienced and knowledgeable chartered building surveyors undertake each survey.

Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve picked out some answers to the most popular questions we get asked by clients and potential customers about our Surveying Services.

What is the difference between a Schedule of Dilapidations and a Schedule of Condition?2023-08-24T11:04:52+01:00

A schedule of dilapidations will only list reinstatement, repair and redecorating works that a tenant or lessee is required to make good in accordance with the repair clauses in their lease. The report will also include reasonable costs for each identified breach which will be a reflection of the landlord’s financial loss as a result of the defects.

A schedule of condition is a descriptive report which records the construction and condition of the property on any given day. The report records both good and bad condition, and does not make any reference to the tenant or lessee’s repair liabilities. A schedule of condition will usually be accompanied by a photographic record.

Do you negotiate a dilapidations claim on behalf of a tenant or lessee?2023-08-24T11:04:36+01:00

Yes, in addition to producing a dilapidations claim for the landlord we can also act for a tenant or lessee. In this scenario we would advise the tenant or lessee with regards to their repairing obligations and negotiate the claim on their behalf to try and reduce their liability, ultimately saving them money.

How will you value my property?2023-08-24T11:03:31+01:00

All of our property valuations are formed using expert local knowledge of the housing market in combination with comparable evidence of other properties which have recently been sold in the area. Each valuation will also take into account the specific features of the property, with better amenities and setting often resulting in a higher valuation. Every valuation will be completed by a surveyor who is certified as a RICS registered valuer.

What will the survey tell me?2023-08-24T11:05:32+01:00

We endeavour to provide a clear concise survey to provide advice from which to negotiate further on price if necessary. We look for defects and advise on the cause, effect and remedy.
