Structural Appraisals of houses and buildings and Structural Reports

We frequently carry out Specialist Structural Investigations of houses and buildings for prospective purchasers, often after a surveyor's report has identified structural defects.


It should be noted that the term "Structural Survey" may be interpreted in a number of different ways but has no legal definition.


Professional bodies such as the Construction Industry Council ( CIC ), the RICS and the IStructE therefore recommend that the term " Structural Survey " is not used.


Different types of survey are described in the CIC pamphlet " Definitions of Inspections and Surveys of Buildings". Unless otherwise noted, surveys carried out by Tottenham & Bennett are either


a) An Elemental or Specialist Structural Investigation

which is carried out where concern exists over specific parts of, or defects in, a property or

b) An Investigation of the Structure prior to alteration


Here are some buildings which we inspected and advised on.
