COVID-19 (Corona Virus) Critical Information
Things are evolving rapidly, so we will keep this information updated, but as it stands we are still taking bookings for all survey types, but are not carrying out site visits.
We will carry out site visits for booked surveys at the earliest possible opportunity once restrictions are eased.
Whilst there is currently uncertainty in some quarters about whether people who are not key workers but can't work from home should still go to work, our position is that it would be irresponsible to have surveyors travelling from town to town entering multiple homes and businesses, regardless of protective measures they may take. As we will be able to quickly carry out surveys again as soon as restrictions ease, we feel that traveling to carry them out now could not reasonably be classed as ‘absolutely necessary’.
We will be taking bookings throughout the crisis, and expect to be very busy when it is eventually deemed safe to carry out site visits again. When this happens we will be carrying out jobs on a ‘first come first served’ basis, so book now to ensure we can survey your property as promptly as possible once normal service resumes!
Whatever type of survey, we approach the work the same way, with a positive 'can do' attitude. We work as part of your team to find pragmatic and innovative solutions to your problems, and to help guide you through the sometimes complex legislative requirements found when developing, selling and renting both commercial and domestic property.
We have been providing Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) since they were first introduced in 2007. We carry out all different types of EPC survey, and are just as happy working on individual domestic properties as we are on huge shopping centres or public buildings. We have surveyed just about every type of building you can imagine, and worked in every part of the UK.
The changing legislation for landlords means understanding exactly what types of surveys and certification you need to have in place at change of tenancy can be confusing. As well as being able to carry out a wide range of survey and certification services for rental property, our expert team is always on hand and happy to provide you with expert guidance on the latest requirements.
If you are in the process of a property transaction we can provide you with the survey and certification services you need. Our sister company Hatchwell & Draper Ltd has been providing RICS accredited surveys and valuations since 1947. We also provide everything from EPCs and floor plans to asbestos surveys and abatement. Contact us today for expert advice and a no-obligation quote.
The complex requirements of the UK building regulations can be a minefield for property developers. Our expert team of surveyors and technical advisors can help guide you through the process, providing tailored advice to ensure your buildings achieve compliance in the most cost effective ways possible. We have worked on a wide range of commercial and domestic projects across the UK.
If you want to ensure your property portfolio is safe from the new Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard (MEES) legislation, then we can provide detailed guidance and help to structure a plan of action. We also provide consultation services for a wide range of other matters related to energy performance of buildings for both domestic and commercial, new build and pre-existing properties.
If your UK company (combined with any subsidiaries) has 250 or more employees, an annual turnover above approx £39m or an annual balance sheet in excess of approx £33.5m, then you require a full ESOS audit. We provided this service for numerous organisations in round one, most of whom began by viewing it as an unwanted expense, but finished delighted by the cost savings identified!
