Building Surveys and inspectionsJ G Hughes & Associates are experienced in diagnosing building defects and undertaking building surveys to assess both a building’s current condition and to predict the future condition, for maintenance requirements and obligations.

We provide a prompt professional report collating all the key information, assessing the building’s condition and recommending the most appropriate solutions.  We also use our extensive knowledge to highlight any potential issues that are yet to fully manifest to ensure your property is able to function for its intended purpose.  Below are the typical range of surveys and inspections we regularly undertake:

  • Specific Defect Surveys providing a detailed report on the cause of a defect and suggesting the most effective remedy including an estimate of costs. We can also manage the subsequent rectification works.
  • House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) Assessments undertaken of properties being considered as potential HMO’s.  We can assess the existing facilities and recommend the improvements necessary to obtain a HMO licence.
  • Investment Option Appraisals of properties being considered prior to acquisition.  We assess the building’s current condition and provide a fully costed schedule of works, allowing you to decide if the investment is financially viable. Valuations of the current and expected values post refurbishment works can also be arranged.


  • Stock Condition Surveys to assess the current and future maintenance and repair obligations for Landlords and Property Owners.
  • Schedules of Condition providing an impartial record of a building’s existing condition, cross referenced with photographs.
  • Inspections of Works in Progress to ensure compliance with the client’s brief and to highlight any workmanship issues.
  • Snagging Inspections prior to handover of works carried out by house builders or following extensive refurbishment works.
