Structural Surveys

Structural Surveys, Inspections,

Investigations and Appraisals

of Residential and Commercial


If you are selling or buying a building we can help you with a variety of structural inspections, reports and appraisals so that you can better manage and understand what is probably your biggest asset;  your property! Sometimes a Surveyor, Mortgage Company or Buildings Insurers will require that a Structural Report is provided, or that a Chartered Structural Engineer is engaged to comment upon a particular area relating to structural concerns that they’ve raised. Fees depend upon our involvement. To carry out a structural survey on a standard circa 1900's masonry semi/terrace property, typical fees may be as follows [we do not charge VAT!!]:
Walk Around Survey: with you with verbal comments only - no report is provided. Typically from £225 Specific Structural Inspection and Report: This can cover the stability of boundary walls, stability of roof structures and roof spread, wall tie issues, cracking in bay windows, cracking over lintels and comments on springy and deflected floors. Typically from £350 General Structural Inspection and Report : This is a general structural report on the building where there are several issues to observe and report up on; for example where there are queries on roof spread and cracking in and around the building. Typically from £525 We aim to visit the property within 2-3 working days of an instruction and our Chartered Structural Engineers will typically spend 1-3 hours on site appraising the structural integrity of the entire property or specific problem areas. A report is then compiled and issued by email as PDF files typically within 3-5 working days following attendance; subject to the complexity of the report and receipt of responses to questions that we may raise during the production of the report. Where applicable, we need to be sent the full Surveyors Valuation Report / HomeBuyers Survey / Building Survey so that we can appreciate the building and confirm a brief and scope with you.
