Subsequent Awards (usually resulting from loos or damage will incur a further reasonable fee. These may or may not be required depending on how matters progress.

Schedule of Condition - A short, pre-building works, condition report (usually with accompanying images) covering the areas of the neighbouring property most likely to be affected by the proposed work.
In some instances it may be sufficient to record a photographic only record. Our fee will depend on the level on detail required. We pride ourselves on undertaking only the level work required depending on the specific circumstances and no more.
Our fee for a Schedule of Condition is from £200-£395 + VAT per Schedule depending on the size and condition of the property.
