Our client chose to instruct a Level 3 Building Survey for this maisonette that forms the upper floors of a converted middle of terrace house built in about 1900, with the inspection undertaken by our senior surveyor Shaun Blake.
The maisonette shared a separating floor with the flat below so, bearing in mind that it was an older style conversion, one of the significant factors raised was the potential problems that can arise with the construction of the separating floor providing inadequate fire separation and sound insulation. In modern conversions, a sound test would be undertaken but that was not the case when these works were undertaken.
Other key issues addressed by the survey related to the conversion of the roof space to provide the second floor, where problems were identified with the means of escape provision, the condition of the flat roof (by means of GoPro camera and camara pole) and inadequate levels of insulation. Each of these factors presented significant costs to address.
