A building survey (formerly known as a Structural 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. Fees for this type of survey are always
payable in advance.
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 re-negotiate the sale price of the property
to reflect the cost of necessary repairs, or you may even decide you do not want to buy it at all.
Chartered Surveyors Lymington and Ringwood.
We can give you a market valuation for property and land to ensure the correct price has been agreed whether
selling or buying. If this is part of a Building Survey it will be accomplished via zoopla.co.uk and nethouseprices.com as
Estate Agents can guild the lilly on such matters.
Party Wall Act
If you intend to carry out construction or alterations which involve:lymington
- 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. Chartered Surveyors Lymington and Ringwood.
The Act provides a fair solution to the problems that are frequently encountered when building on
or adjacent boundaries or in confined areas.
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.
Condition and Dilapidations
A Schedule of Condition may be agreed between the Landlord and Tenant at the commencement
of a lease. This will usually be a document with photographic evidence of the condition of the property at the outset, which
can be attached to the lease and limit the Tenant's repairing liability, depending upon the wording of the lease. Your Solicitor
will advise on these matters.
You may be the Landlord of Commercial
Property which you feel has been allowed to fall into disrepair.
your Tenant may be approaching the end of the lease and you require a Schedule of Dilapidations to require the Tenant to bring
the property up to a reasonable standard.

or small and 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 & construction project
management services to ensure a smooth process from concept to delivery.

project; from pre-construction to design, to actual construction work and post construction requirements to guarantee faultless
service from beginning to end.

Survey Terms and Conditions
1.The Report is provided for the sole use of the named Client and is confidential to the Client and his professional
advisers. The Surveyor accepts responsibility to the Client alone for the stated purposes of the Report which will be prepared,
with the skill, care and diligence reasonably to be expected of a competent Surveyor, but no responsibility whatsoever is
accepted to any person other than the Client himself. Any such person relies upon the Report at entirely their own risk.
2 Neither the whole nor any part of the document or
any reference thereto may be included in any published document circular or statement nor published in any way without the
Surveyor's written approval of the form and the context in which it may appear.House survey in Southampton.
3. Inaccessible flat roofs over 3 metres (10 feet) above
ground will not be inspected unless they can be viewed from a higher window. Unless the overall roof exterior shows signs
of sagging/dishing or other visual failure the surveyor will not be liable for faults incurred by faulty design/construction.
Lofts can only be fully inspected if not impeded by stored items and are safely boarded to comply with Sec 3 HASWA 1974.

assumptions will be made by the Surveyor (and these are therefore matters for which no responsibility can be accepted by the
I. that no deleterious material
was used in the construction of the Property or has since been incorporated (including high alumina cement concrete, calcium
chloride additive and asbestos) ;
the Property is not subject to any unusual or especially onerous restrictions, encumbrances or outgoings and that good title
can be shown;
III. that the Property and
its value are unaffected by any matters which would be revealed by a local search or replies to the usual enquiries, or by
any statutory notice and that neither the Property nor its condition, not its use, nor its intended use is or will be unlawful;
IV. that inspection of those parts which have not been
inspected would neither reveal material defects nor cause the Surveyor to alter the advice given in the Report materially.
5. The Surveyor will provide his opinion of the state
of repair and condition of the Property specified. The Surveyor will not provide a market value of the Property unless expressly
agreed prior to carrying out the survey.
Surveyor will not be responsible for arranging the testing of services (water, electricity, gas, oil, drainage, plumbing,
hot water and central heating installations) unless specifically instructed to do so. In regard to the services the Surveyor
is not an expert; comments made regarding the service installations are intended as general comments only. Only by inspection
and testing by an engineer appropriately qualified in the relevant discipline can the condition of the services and their
compliance with current regulations be confirmed.
7.If the service installations are disconnected, switched off or drained down at the time of inspection they will
not be connected, switched on or charged with water for the purposes of the inspection unless previously arranged and undertaken
by an appropriately qualified engineer of operative commissioned by the owner of the property or the Client.
8. It is possible that the Report will suggest further
investigation works to be carried out by a specialist firm, e.g. structural engineer, timber specialist, damp specialist,
drainage engineer or electrical engineer. On no account will liability be accepted if a purchaser proceeds without obtaining
and acting upon the relevant further advice. Southampton

no environmental survey will be carried out re Flooding or Radon although these can be arranged separately by specialists.
Insect / Fungal / Plant infestation is precluded and should be investigated separately.
10.The Survey Report will not purport to express an opinion about or to
advise upon the condition of uninspected parts and should not be taken as making any implied representation or statements
about such parts.
11.The Surveyor will
carry out such work with the skill, care and diligence reasonably to be expected of a competent Surveyor, bearing in
mind the limitation of the inspection. Fitted or fixed carpets will not be lifted or cupboards emptied or heavy furniture
moved unless specifically requested or agreed.
Surveyor will inspect as much of the surface area as is practicable and will lift loose floorboards and trap doors where accessible
but he will be under no obligation to raise fixed floorboards or to inspect those areas of the Property that are covered,
unexposed or are not reasonably accessible.
where the contrary is stated parts of the structure and the woodwork which are covered, unexposed or inaccessible will not
be inspected. Within roof spaces where access is possible, the Surveyor will be under no obligation to report on the condition
of the roof and ceiling timbers which are covered by insulation or similar materials or when stored household effects significantly
restrict or obstruct inspection.
specific written instructions, the Surveyor will not report on the condition of out buildings inc garages in separate blocks,
swimming pools, ponds, watercourses and special apparatus.
15.Where the Property being inspected is a flat or part of a larger building, the inspection will be restricted to
that flat or part. Other parts of the building will only be inspected at the Surveyors discretion or where there is visual
evidence that they may involve the owner of the subject Property in substantial maintenance costs.
16.The Report shall provide information as to the overall condition of the
Property in relation to the quality of the structure and not as an inventory of every single defect which might insignificantly
affect the ultimate value. Surveys
17. Regulations affecting all building types are subject to periodic, sometimes frequent, amendment.
The subject Property should not be expected to meet all current Regulations unless it is new. As a general rule, the Regulations
