Building Pathology – Building Defects and Repairs

At LBB Chartered Surveyors we offer a specialist building surveying consultancy advising property owners, occupiers and property managers on all aspects of building repair and maintenance.  

All properties suffer from problems every now and then. Sometimes they can be straightforward, and a builder can resolve them. Sometimes they are more complex, and a solution is not always obvious.

Our expert Building Surveyors are able to assist you with the diagnosis of a wide range of defects. We undertake inspections and provide advice on all aspects of building condition, repair and maintenance. We regularly advise on issues such as roof leaks, dampness, condensation and structural movement. Our advice has often proved invaluable, helping our clients to resolve long-term problems. 

We can recommend remedies that are cost effective and practical to achieve, helping you weigh up the pros and cons of different repair options. 

We offer an expert witness and litigation service to provide expert evidence and advice in connection with disrepair, building disputes and litigation, including for court. 

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