Building Surveys

When buying, selling, occupying or funding a property, it is important that you fully understand the condition of the property as well as understanding the initial on ongoing liabilities prior to purchase.

Alternatively, you may already occupy a building and have concerns about the condition in general, a particular defect or are considering undertaking alterations to the premises.

Whether you are looking for a pre-acquisition survey or a more specific report we are vastly experienced in reporting on commercial properties, we are able to provide survey reports to suit your requirements.

Our reports include a detailed analysis of the building structure; the condition of the building as a whole; maintenance requirements and defects identified. We will also advise on the legislation that affects the users, owners and occupiers of commercial premises. Finally, if appropriate, we can provide a cost analysis of any required repairs or works required.

In the event that works of repair of alteration are required, we are able to provide design and specification services as well as managing any works through to completion.


At the request of the owners of the property, Peacock Stevens were commissioned to carry out a detailed Building Condition Survey of the Internal and External elements of their existing industrial premises.


Professional and pragmatic advice from an experienced building surveying practice who we are always happy to recommend to our clients.

I recently used Peacock Stevens when looking to purchase a new house. In the end I instructed two surveys as the depth and quality of the report on the first property identified defects that would have meant significant costs to me, meaning I did not proceed.

I am pleased that my second choice was defect free and the quality and detail in the survey was again of the highest standard.

Peacock Stevens recently carried out an RICS Building Survey for me on a house I was looking to purchase. The report was thorough and detailed but was also easy to understand. We are very happy in our new home.

Mr S Davenport

An excellent and comprehensive report and we will take heed of its findings. We are proceeding with the purchase and hopefully all will go according to plan. Thank you and with best wishes
