Abercorn Surveyors Ltd can provide structural reports for specific defects relating to residential and commercial properties. These reports will be prepared by a Chartered Building Surveyor.

Structural Reports are often required by Building Societies or Lending Institutions where a potential structural problem is highlighted on a Mortgage Valuation Report. A structural report is then required from a Structural Engineer or Chartered Building Surveyor.

Structural Reports can also be undertaken where movement has occurred to a property due to subsidence, landslip, heave or drainage damage.

A Specific Defect Report is normally commissioned where a building suffers from a specific defect or a series of related defects. A Specific Defect Report will provide detailed analysis on the likely causes of the defect and give advice on remedial works necessary to alleviate the problem.

Abercorn Surveyors Ltd can provide Structural Calculations where these are needed for alterations to existing buildings or the complex construction of new buildings.

Structural Calculations are required by Building Regulation control where works of alteration are required to a building, for example, replacement of defective lintels, removal of supporting walls or alterations to chimney breasts.

All Structural Calculations are undertaken by a qualified Chartered Building Surveyor.

Abercorn Surveyors Ltd can provide a new build supervision facility. During this process the construction of the property is inspected at various stages. Upon completion a Supervising Surveyor’s Certificate is issued. This certificate is accepted by most institutional mortgage lenders as being equivalent to an NHBC/Zurich/Foundation 15/Architects Certificate. This supervision scheme is of benefit to small building firms who construct less than 10 houses per annum and individuals constructing single dwellings.
