Frequently Asked Questions
- What exactly is a Chartered Surveyor?
A Chartered Surveyor is a highly trained and experienced professional, qualified to provide advice and guidance on a number of matters relating to buildings and properties. See our team’s qualifications and experience here. Only those who have undergone rigorous training and who are members or fellows of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) can refer to themselves as Chartered Surveyors. RICS is the leading professional body for residential and commercial surveyors and property professionals in the UK and worldwide and membership of RICS is a highly respected mark of professionalism, competence, technical knowledge and ethics.
- What do chartered surveyors do?
Commercial surveyors assist with a wide range of specialist services concerning buildings, properties and construction related matters, including residential accommodation and commercial properties such as offices, retail spaces and industrial buildings. At Squarepoint Chartered Surveyors, we specialise in all types of commercial building surveys, party wall matters, architectural design services, building extensions and alterations, refurbishment and restoration advice, commercial property project management, contract administration and much more.
- When do I need a chartered surveyor?
There are many reasons when the services of a Chartered Surveyor may be needed. You might be a building owner with plans for a loft conversion or basement extension, which will affect a party wall. Or perhaps you are the adjoining owner having received a party wall notice from your neighbour about the proposed works. Maybe you are looking for a high-quality building survey for a property you are about to invest in. Or you are a commercial landlord or tenant about to enter into a new lease arrangement for your premises. In all cases, an experienced commercial surveyor will be able to provide expert guidance and assistance.
- What are the responsibilities of a commercial surveyor?
The responsibilities of an independent commercial surveyor are extensive. Depending on the client’s requirements and property goals, a surveyor can be involved in:
• Assessing the building’s condition prior to purchase or lease, identifying any defects and suggesting remedial action
• Providing advice on managing and supervising building maintenance and upkeep
• Providing up-to-date expert advice on building regulations and relevant legislation
• Managing projects to ensure their completion to schedule and on budget
• Preparing schedules of condition and dilapidation surveys, and negotiating on the landlord’s or tenant’s behalf to achieve a resolution
• Advising on health & safety related matters including disability access
• Providing advice and guidance on sustainable construction, energy efficiency and the project’s environmental impact
- What types of building surveys do commercial surveyors carry out?
Commercial building surveys are designed to provide you with an insight into the condition of the property, highlighting any issues you need to know so proper action can be taken. At Squarepoint Chartered Surveyors, our expert team offer a full range of commercial building services to help with the acquisition, management and disposal of your property asset. These include acquisition surveys, building surveys, condition surveys, dilapidation surveys, disability access surveys, home surveys and specialist surveys including for damp, drainage, structural problems, timber decay or asbestos.
- What is the best way to choose a commercial surveyor?
Look for professional membership of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and other specialist organisations such as, in the case of party wall matters, the Faculty of Party Wall Surveyors (FPWS), as well as relevant experience in the specific field you are seeking advice in. RICS have an online directory of all accredited commercial surveyors and you can filter by location and specialism. Check customer reviews and feedback ratings too – you can read our testimonials here. Ask for recommendations from other trusted property professionals, colleagues and friends – word-of-mouth referrals are one of the best ways to find a good commercial surveyor.
