Heritage and Listed Buildings Surveys
Respect the history by gaining the right knowledge
What is a heritage and listed building Survey?
Step 1 - Understand the History
When investing in a historically listed property, or one that has some local or national significance, it is vital to understand the history of the property. The original design, use, and occupation all play a vital role in understanding how the building has been used throughout its life cycle.
The history of the property quite often dictates the future of the property.
Step 3 - The Report
We provide a thorough and detailed report on the property's condition identifying defects that require attention and providing advice on how to rectify them. This is why the history of the property is important (especially regarding damp and timber defects).
Understanding that a property was once used for agriculture or manufacturing can play a huge role in diagnosing damp, or identifying where structural issues originate.
Step 2 - The Survey
Once the history of the property has been established, the survey takes place to inspect all areas of the property that we are able to do so safely.
We inspect all elements including the structure externally, internally, damp and timber defects, services (i.e. gas, electric, drainage).
