We don’t work from a standard template at Fourth Wall. Our surveys are bespoke and developed with you in mind. We believe this sets us apart.

Architectural Feasibility Review

When conducting your survey, we can also provide you with a initial Architectural Feasibility Review if you have any alterations or extensions in mind.

This will include a review of feasibility of your project and initial Planning, Building Regulations and Party Wall considerations.

Building Reinstatement Cost Assessments

If you own a property, no matter what size or for what purpose, you need to ensure you’re insured to the right level should anything happen.

Our experts will provide a report outlining the insurance reinstatement value based on the latest cost data and our expert knowledge.

Drone Surveys of Roof Area, Chimneys and hard to reach places

If you invest or develop property, we conduct reports focused at seasoned investors with key considerations included when purchasing a buy to let property.

If you own or are purchasing a portfolio, we can inspect and report on the condition and the key considerations of the entire portfolio.
