Building Surveys
Our Building Survey Reports are prepared following a detailed inspection of the property by a Chartered Building Surveyor. All visible defects are reported upon and, where possible, the cause diagnosed and recommendations for repair given. Such surveys are often undertaken in conjunction with other specialists, e.g. Mechanical and Electrical Engineers who have specific knowledge of and can comment on heating, lighting, power and lifts.

Measured Surveys
The starting point for reorganisation and refurbishment schemes, as many clients do not possess accurate drawings of the buildings they wish to occupy or alter.

Building Defects
Problems with buildings can be costly and an unnecessary hindrance. We provide diagnosis of defects and advice on remedial works.

We may act for either the Landlord or the Tenant, advising on all aspects of dilapidations including preparation of Schedules of Dilapidations, overseeing works and negotiation with opposite parties.

Schedules of Condition
We prepare Schedules of Condition for attachment to new leases. Schedules of Condition and Maintenance Liabilities can also be prepared to advise on future liabilities during the term of the Lease. This helps with property management and cashflow forecasts.

Party Wall Awards
We assist in compliance with relevant legislation and can act for the Building Owner or Adjoining Owner, or both as required.

Herrington & Associates act as experts in advising on matters of contractual dispute, building defects and professional negligence

Insurance Claims
We assist building owners in the formation of their claim and the co-ordination of remedial work.

A Chartered Building Surveyor is ideally suited to the refurbishment of properties, advising on materials and detailing and assisting in the appraisal and monitoring of schemes.

Project Management
Our clients with major investment in property require a comprehensive service and we can offer full monitoring/administration and manage projects on their behalf.

Planned Maintenance
The maintenance of a property is always important and sound advice from our Building Surveyors will assist in deciding when and how properties should be maintained for prudent investment.
