Our team of surveyors are passionate about inspecting properties in Leytonstone whether it be as part of a pre-purchase survey, to establish a property’s value or to prepare a schedule of condition prior to works commencing next door.
If you are planning a building project in Leytonstone you’ve probably started thinking about party wall procedures. The first step is to establish whether the works fall within the scope of the Act – if you’d like us to do that for you, free of charge, just send us copies of the drawings and we’ll normally come back to you within 24 hours. If you’re on the other side of the wall, we can also assist if you’ve decided that you need to appoint a surveyor or just need some initial advice without obligation.
Our senior surveyor, Shaun Blake was instructed to undertake a pre-purchase survey of a flat in Mornington Road in Leytonstone. Being a purpose built leasehold flat in a block, a Level 2 Home Survey was chosen to provide a concise and economic report upon the urgent and serious issues. The inspection included the interior of the subject flat and common parts, together with the outside of the block as a whole. Defects identified included problems with the external maintenance of joinery and decorations, potential asbestos containing materials, concerns over fire separation and damage caused by leakage from the flat above. The report was turned around quickly, with Shaun ensuring that he was available to chat through the issues.
Our client was pleased with the report and commented that she found it “clear and easy to understand”. She thanked Shaun for “taking the time to reply to me personally when I had a couple of questions”.
