All properties suffer defects from time to time. Sometimes they can be straightforward and a builder can resolve them for you. Sometimes they are more complex, and solutions are not always obvious.

At LBB Chartered Surveyors we offer a specialist building surveying consultancy – advising property owners, occupiers and property managers on the repair and maintenance of their properties.

Our expert Building Surveyors provide advice to clients on all aspects of building condition, repair and maintenance. We regularly advise on issues such as roof leaks, dampness, condensation and structural movement. Wherever possible we seek to recommend remedies that are cost-effective and practical. There have been many occasions when our advice has proven invaluable in resolving long-term problems.

We can consider lease liabilities for leasehold blocks and can advise who may be responsible for repairs under the terms of a lease. We are familiar with service charge procedures and with the various statutory notices required for works to long leasehold flats.

When required we can provide expert advice about building defects in connection with building disputes for Court or Tribunal. John Byers regularly acts as an expert witness in property disputes for clients.

Many property management companies make use of our services when considering long-term maintenance plans for their buildings.
