The role of a building surveyor in listed building works

Listed building surveyors specialise in evaluating historic buildings. They are knowledgeable in all aspects of older buildings, including the mortars, timber types, bricks, and roofing materials used to make them. No building surveyor is more qualified than one with a listed building accreditation.

If you need a property survey for your home, you must choose the best survey for your particular needs. Unfortunately, most homeowners don’t realize at least three different home surveys exist. Each survey type corresponds with the specific depth of the evaluation and the kind of information you want to discover about the home.

A home’s age, size, and shape all play a role in selecting the best surveyor and survey level. Here are the three primary functions of a building surveyor in listed building works.

1) Evaluate the Condition

A listed building surveyor must be knowledgeable of historic buildings in the United Kingdom. Their job is to evaluate the condition and value of the buildings. These would be buildings at least over 50 years old.

2) Give a Detailed Report

A listed building surveyor will deliver a comprehensive report on the home, everything from the current condition to the original materials used to make the building.

3) Give Recommendations

Our surveyors can give you their best recommendations on the fastest and most affordable solutions for repairing the building issues. Further inspections may be required if the building’s current condition calls for it.
