It is important that regular and detailed building surveys are undertaken to ensure the asset value of Clients buildings is fully protected.
Defects dealt with quickly solve the immediate problem and prevent future large scale difficulties.
Detection of materials failure and design faults in buildings is important. When an imperfection comes to light, it is essential, not only to work out the solution but supply various options and costings as a basis for negotiations.
Identification of problems and negotiation of settlements need to be undertaken on behalf of Purchasers in the acquisition of premises.
A full knowledge of past and current legislation is important. Contamination and environmental matters have come to the forefront in recent years, particularly as property owners are facing an increasing liability in this connection.
Some of the past and most recent legislation and issues requiring particular attention includes:
- - Building Regulations
- - Environmental Protection Act 1990
- - Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations 2002
- - Disability Discrimination Act 1995
- - Construction (Design & Management) Regulations (CDM) 1994
- - Risk Assessment/Environmental Audit
- - Energy Performance Certificates
