Building Surveying

If you’re buying a new property or about to make significant changes to a property, you will need a chartered building surveyor on hand to ensure the building is safe and not suffering from any structural damage or faults that’ll cost you safety, time and money later on. At Adkins Consultants, our building surveyors in Kent are on hand to ensure you have all the information you need to make informed choices about your building.

 

Building surveys Kent

Building surveys are a valuable service, helping you to determine the condition of a property, and this comprehensive inspection includes information on all consumable items, such as sanitary fittings and internal joinery. Our building surveys include information on roofs and roof voids, internal and external walls, floors, grounds and boundaries and more.

Building surveys are particularly useful for property buyers as they can be used to negotiate a more favourable sale price.
