Period / Listed / Abstract or Unusual Buildings

If they’ve built, we’ve surveyed it!

Dawson & Associates are experts in assessing the condition and defects of all types of property drawing down knowledge from our wealth of experience, obtained over the last 45 years of being in practice.  Our head office is based in near Rye and Winchelsea, both historical and some parts medieval towns with structures dating back to the 1400’s which we are regularly asked to inspect.

Period, listed and unusual buildings are often requested for inspection, most of which form part of our usual daily inspections, occasionally however we are asked to survey the weird and wonderful. We have a detailed experience in surveying anything from;

Non-standard construction; Churches, chapels, mosque’s, barn conversions, water towers, Oast houses, Cult Houses, concrete and steel frame, public houses, breweries and wineries.

Public sector; Care homes, Hospitals, government buildings, offices, hotels, pharmacy, schools, art galleries, warehouses and shops.

Rural; Grade I, II, II* listed buildings, Agricultural buildings, industrial, commercial, ancient timber framed, barns, well houses, boat houses, workshops and air craft hangers.

We are fully qualified Chartered Surveyors, offering advice and support for Listed & Period Buildings.

A thorough Property Survey by a RICS accredited surveyor ensures that any items requiring attention on your property (or a potential property purchase) are brought to your attention.

Dawson Surveyors will help you to understand your statutory obligations when owning a listed or period building. It is equally important to be aware of your environmental or build responsibilities if your property is located in a conservation area.

We advise everybody to appoint a professional surveyor before a listed or period property is purchased or before the commencement of construction works. Please feel free to contact us for free initial advice.

The above types of property cannot be quoted via our online service. If you are in need of a survey/inspection or advice for any of the above or similar buildings; please call our office for free, without obligation advice from a qualified member of staff.
