Building Surveying Services

In tandem with the core building surveying and architectural activity, we also offer a range of complimentary building surveying services.

 

Party Wall Services

The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 provides a framework for undertaking building works to party walls, boundary walls, and for excavations near neighbouring buildings. The combination of our technical awareness and working knowledge of the Act serves to ensure that works are undertaken with due regard to the Building Owner and Adjoining Owner. Our architectural service includes advising Building Owners on appropriate courses of action to ensure their proposed works are compliant with the Act. Alternatively, if you have received a Notice from a neighbour confirming their intention to undertake works that fall within the scope of the Act, feel free to contact us for advice on the options afforded to you by the Act.

 

Insurance Reinstatement

If you have had the misfortune to suffer a flood, fire, impact or subsidence, BDS Surveyors Ltd are at hand to promptly attend and get the reinstatement process underway. By their very nature such occurrences are unplanned, and effective professional assistance is key to minimising the inconvenience. BDS Surveyors Ltd provide services to assess the extent of the reinstatement works required, prepare documentation accordingly and liaise with the Loss Adjuster. Then appoint a Contractor, arrange commencement of works  and monitor through to completion.

 

Building Pathology

In addition to surveying your prospective new property, our building surveying skills also extend to the diagnosis of the cause of current problems that you may be experiencing with your existing property. Services typically include defects investigation and analysis, testing and monitoring as appropriate, and advising on appropriate schemes of remedial works.

 

Boundary Disputes

Working on behalf of either the claimant or defendant, measured site surveys can be undertaken to gather and present pragmatic and impartial evidence on boundary positions and demarcation disputes. We are also experienced in working alongside legal representatives where matters progress to a Court Hearing.

 

Principal Designer Services

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 impose specific obligations and responsibilities on various parties of a construction project to consider and manage health and safety matters. BDS Surveyors Ltd can advise as to what extent the regulations apply to your project, and provide services as appropriate.
