Building Defects Reports & Structural Movement Analysis & Monitoring

If there is a particular defect with a property that requires further investigation, Robson Walsh is able to provide a Specific Defect report. This type of report includes a detailed analysis of the issues, recommendations for investigation repair, and includes budget estimated costs.

We act for the National House Building Council (NHBC) as an approved consultant in resolving major defects.

We offer the service as a standalone report, or as a follow-up to an RICS Homebuyer Report.

Structural Movement Analysis and Monitoring will often involve monitoring of the building or structure movement, investigation of the ground and foundation conditions, determining the location and condition of below ground drainage and services, and the influence of environmental factors including trees roots.
