Suggested reads about Building Surveyor

What do a building surveyor’s services include?

A building surveyor’s job is to do a comprehensive inspection of the structure, including its external and internal parts. While they won’t look into the foundation or footings of your building, you can expect the Tasker to look at the doors, windows, walls, roofs, stairs or elevators, garages, and ceilings. 

While the exact checklist of the commercial property surveyor may vary, you can generally count on them to do the following:

Internal inspection for commercial buildings

This can include checking dampness, condensation, broken ceilings, rotting wood, and woodworm. A local building surveyor checks the chimney breasts and joinery as well if ever there is one in your building. They’ll note anything that needs to be repaired or replaced and may even recommend ways to fix these issues. 

A commercial surveyor usually looks at the materials used in your building since these can affect any risks when using your facility. Hazardous materials like asbestos will be listed in the report. 

External inspection of commercial properties

When you hire a local building surveyor, they usually do an external check as well. This covers the roof, the outer part of the chimney, gutters, and drainage. They also check the stability of the main walls as well as your windows and exterior doors. 

Aside from these externally visible parts of the building, a commercial property surveyor may also check on any outhouses on your property. These include garages and conservatories. Any plants or trees that might compromise your building’s structural integrity will also be included in the surveyor’s report.

Just like with the internal inspection, you can expect the building surveyor to take note of issues and recommend repairs or modifications. 

Building survey report

The result of the inspection is usually emailed or delivered a week after the building surveyor’s visit. The report uses a “traffic light” system that makes it easy for you to understand. For example, green or Condition Rating 1 means the building needs maintenance and that any maintenance protocols you currently use are working great. An orange colour (Condition Rating 2) means your building has issues that need to be repaired, but they aren’t considered serious. Lastly, a red colour (Condition Rating 3) on the report means you need to fix some parts of your building as soon as possible. 

In terms of market valuation, a Condition Rating 2 may not impact the building’s selling price, but a Condition Rating 3 may render the purchase void. For quick and easy repairs, consider contacting a local handyperson or plumber through Airtasker.
