Whether it be to assess the condition of a property that is rented, a property that is being purchased, or even a new build that has issues that fall under the new build insurance.

Alpine Structural undertake accurate, independent surveys to the correct standards including specifications according to Section 11 Landlord & Tenant Act, RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) and the NHBC National House Build Council guidance.

Outstanding Service

“Mark arrived on time and carried out a full survey and gave me good explanations of the root causes and proposed corrective actions. The report provided the same day with detailed analysis of several issues.
We’ve not yet been able to confirm that the proposal will solve the problem, because the suggested works in the proposal are quite expensive and disruptive, but I do believe the Mark has identified the roots of the problem.
I hope we can report back good news once we can afford to carry out the works.”

Building Defect Survey

A specific building defect survey, also known as a specific structural survey, is an assessment of a building’s particular structural problems.

The survey inspects a specific issue with the building’s structure.

For residential properties, these issues are commonly a specific defect that another surveyor has uncovered during a Homebuyer or Building Survey.

The surveyor then recommends further structural inspection to more comprehensively investigate and rectify the issue.

Owners, tenants and potential purchasers of commercial properties can also require particular structural investigations. These are commonly known as specific structural inspections.
