Spencer Lion Ltd specialises in the following services:-
Full Building Surveys
A full building survey is a structural survey of the property including a description of visible defects and potential problems caused by hidden flaws. It will provide an outline of repair options, advice for your legal adviser and details of any serious risks or considerations. A full building survey is suitable for both commercial and residential properties, especially for older buildings and converted or extended properties.
The report will allow the vendor to negotiate for any serious defects to be corrected or the price to be reduced. It may in some instances prevent making an expensive and ill advised investment.
Party Wall Advice
Where building works are proposed to a party wall structure or excavations and foundations are to be undertaken nearby, then the Party Wall Act 1996 applies. Acting for residential and commercial owners in excess of 25 years, Spencer Lion Ltd has vast experience of the Party Wall process.It is important that the legal process is followed in order to protect both parties.
