Subsidence issues and cracking are predominantly inspected by a qualified and experienced surveyor with advice given on causes and remedial work recommended, along with budget cost where appropriate. Sometimes additional inspection or advise such as drainage and occasional soil testing will be advised.
This is not something that will generally need a Structural Engineer unless there are elements of construction needed as part of any remedial works that are in addition to the original construction of the property.
If it is your lender that has requested this survey, please check that my qualifications are acceptable to them before proceeding. I am RICS and CIOB member.
No, this is normally done by the freehold, landlord or managing agents and is carried out by a specialist company. I cannot provide this type of survey.
Your legal adviser should be able to find out if the managing agents or landlord has had the building assessed previously.
Andrew came to survey a recently fitted conservatory roof that continually leaks. He arrived promptly and did a thorough survey, taking photos and explaining everything to me. I found him very pleasant, thorough and knowledgeable and received his detailed report within the time he stated. I would certainly recommend Andrew to anyone needing a Surveyor.
