At Allcotts, we are truly residential property experts, carrying out over 300 residential surveys each month. 

We have an in-depth understanding of the issues faced by housing associations, charities, local authorities and other residential property owners.

Our RICS surveyors carry out condition and structural surveys on houses across the UK.

Working for a wide variety of clients, we provide stock condition surveys for planning and forecasting purposes, damp and condensation survey series, retrofitting and surveys for Need to Sell schemes / compulsory purchase.

Expert Housing Stock Surveyors

We are experienced in balancing the needs of our clients with those of the people who call their properties home. We are sensitive to the needs and concerns of residents, and to the pressures and priorities of the portfolio owners.

Our surveyors are all members of the RICS, and as a regulated firm all our work is done to RICS standards. Our surveyors are knowledgeable on how the age and construction type of a house will affect the issues present, and the repairs and maintenance required.

Likewise, our administration team are highly experienced in liaising with residents to ensure smooth access, and provide flexibility when access arrangements need to change at short notice.

As well as reporting on the condition of each building element, we support our clients with forecasting and budgeting by categorising defects according to urgency. When surveying large series of housing, we develop pro formas to ensure that reporting is consistent across the portfolio. We also hold regular team reviews to ensure a uniform surveying approach and straightforward reports that meet our clients’ needs.

We can also provide planned preventative maintenance schedules and lifecycles, helping clients spread costs over a period of time by advising on the consequences of delaying works. Dashboards and macros allow our clients to easily filter the data and find what they need at the touch of a button.
