Expert Building Surveys in Bolton

Building / Structural Survey. This is recommended in particular for properties which are older or of unusual construction. It is particular beneficial if the property is in poor condition or you are planning a major conversion/renovation after purchase.

You will benefit from the fact that with Chase & Associates Limited the Surveyor who will carry out this survey are also members of the Chartered Institute of Building which means we have extensive knowledge of construction techniques and defects.

Legal Disrepair Surveys. Are you living in a damp house with jobs that need doing? Is the landlord not interested in doing the work because it is too expensive? We can carry out a survey to identify what repairs are required and ensure that all items of disrepair are correctly identified, diagnosed and rectified.

Regulation. If you are undertaking a new build project, a refurbishment or an extension, Chase & Associates can advise on the requirements of the Planning and Building Regulations. There are also other regulations you may need to consider such as the Control of Asbestos Regulations, Disability Discrimination Act, Health & Safety at Work Act and Construction (Design & Management) Regulations. We can also project manage your project for you to ensure all these regulations are adhered to.

Specific Defect Survey. You may require specific advice for a particular problem for example, possibly identified in the lenders mortgage valuation report. This can be a cost effective way of providing information for a particular defect without going to the overall expense of a full survey. Very often cracks in buildings are a cause of concern and it will be important to decide whether movement is historic or whether there is a continuing problem.

New Build Snagging. When you buy a new home there are often minor defects that remain after the building has been signed of. These include anything from poor plastering to defective roof coverings and poorly installed services. The most recent Home Builders Federation (HVB) customer satisfaction survey found that more than 90% of new-build owners reported problems to the builder after moving in. This can be a source of disappointment and frustration for homebuyers. We can carry a snagging service that will highlight these faults. These are then detailed in a report which is passed to your Developer who is instructed to rectify the problems promptly.

Disputes. Disputes can arise between clients and their builders for various reasons when building a new property, carrying out extensions or undertaking a refurbishment. Disputes can be for a variety of reasons, for example the quality of workmanship, the cost of extra work undertaken or incorrect specification. Depending upon the nature of the problem our Surveyors can undertake to provide reports upon specific building defects or issues as part of a dispute mediation process and may also be able to help in dispute negotiation/litigation.

EPC and HCR. We can arrange for Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) and Home Condition Reports (HCR)
