Development & Construction Consultancy
As a home owner, commercial landlord or tenant, you may experience a number of issues with your property including leaks, damp, condensation, cracking, movement as well other potentially unexplained problems which may be causing disruption and distress. To help, we provide inspection and reporting services to help you better understand the causes and provide solutions.
New Build Snagging Surveys:
Buying a new build house off plan or a house which has been recently built can be daunting. You are normally provided with a 10 year NHBC guarantee, however, this unfortunately doesn’t prevent issues being experienced such as; use of incorrect finishes, incorrect work undertaken, poor workmanship or defects such as leaks, cracking, damp and movement.
We undertake a variety of snagging survey’s including identification of any outstanding works as well as identification of failures in design and workmanship. From this we can provide detailed reports which help our clients better understand their property defects experienced, the causes of these defects and provide advice on how best to address the issue with the developer. Where necessary and possible, we can also provide representation for our clients, liaising directly with the developer on your behalf.
When undertaking these types of surveys, we review construction drawings, deeds, purchase agreements and undertake tailored surveys of your property. This enables a better understanding of your property and ensures that anything that falls short of the standards of the property agreed with the developer are identified.
Defective or poor quality building work:
When undertaking building work, there is always a risk that works undertaken may not be completed to the standard you were expecting, or worse yet, fall short of building regulations and other statutory regulations which can become a health and safety risk and/or invalidate building insurance policies.
AMC Property undertake surveys tailored to your particular concerns and needs, providing independent reports and recommendations on how to proceed and the options available to you.
We work closely with specialist solicitors and sub-consultants, ensuring you receive the best support to help address your building work matter.
Whether building defects or poor workmanship have been identified, AMC Property can assist in design and specification of suitable repair works, administer building work contracts, as well as provide project management services. Ensuring the repairs needed at your property are correctly identified and implemented under agreed terms and conditions.
