A condition of banks or lenders providing loan facilities to fund building projects is often that a professional, such as a chartered surveyor, monitors the project from inception through to practical completion. This monitoring advice includes overseeing all building issues relating to a new construction project. Carter Jonas has a number of chartered surveyors who are experienced in this field.
Once appointed, we visit the proposed development to become familiar with all physical aspects of the site and we request copies of relevant information from the developer or builder. This information will often include construction details, costs and programmes, flood risk assessments, ecology and ground reports, statutory planning, listed building consent, building regulation information, approvals relating to health and safety, and relevant legal documents.
