Structural Engineers’ Reports
We can provide Structural Engineers’ reports on any defects. These form part of our daily work and we have a dedicated system to provide fairly immediate response, often providing a next day visit and issuing of the report the day after. On occasions we have issued the report on the same day as the visit, as we appreciate many point of sale reports are urgent.
The most common are:-
General signs of movement
Subsidence concerns, previous underpinning
Bulging and leaning walls
Floor and roof loading problems
Such reports are often required by clients and lending institutions and their Surveyors as part of a property purchase. We have been providing these reports for over 25 years on a daily basis and provide a comforting customer service to talk our clients through their requirements.
Our jargon free reports are produced by Chartered Structural Engineers (CEng MIStructE is the appropriate qualification) and we aim to issue our reports very promptly as they often occur immediately prior to exchange of contracts.
Our fees for carrying out inspections and producing reports start at approximately £1,000 + VAT for a second opinion on a localised matter, for smaller local dwellings in South London and Surrey inside the M25.
Visits can be arranged at short notice and we often issue the report (if urgent) the same day or within 48 hours.
Professional Indemnity Insurance is of course provided.
Full back up is available to speak to clients, Surveyors, Solicitors, Insurers and Mortgage advisors etc afterwards.
We can specify and supervise subsequent repairs.
Budget costing advice is provided if requested.
