Most Popular Surveys

Harris Associates carry out pre-acquisition surveys and provide technical due diligence advice to ensure our clients are fully appraised and aware of any issues before they commit to a purchase.

Usually, this comprehensive building survey would include an assessment of the condition of the building fabric and engineering services, the identification of any defects & necessary remedial works, advice on any proposed alterations / fitting out works and advice in connection with on-going maintenance or dilapidations liabilities. Where necessary, we arrange for other consultants, such as structural engineers or mechanical and electrical engineers to provide specialist advice to assist our investigations.

We also carry out defects analysis surveys to identify and report on a specific issue or defect to pinpoint its cause and recommend remedial works.

Schedules of condition are produced for a number of purposes, such as prior to carrying out alterations or for appending to a lease.  They provide a formal detailed written and photographic record of the existing condition of a property.

With all building survey instructions, our flexible approach accommodates our clients’ needs and provides all the information they require.
