AH Surveys are able to advise clients on how to set up condition surveys, approaches to sampling, alternative survey designs, different IT options and customer liaison processes as well as undertaking the condition surveys ourselves, we are likely to undertake the survey far quicker and importantly we are able to provide an independent view on the condition of the stock that any in house surveyors are unable to do.
Surveys can be undertaken for a variety of reasons including the following:
- Assessing current and future repairs and maintenance liabilities of properties.
- Assessing existing condition and health and safety issues under the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS). This is a risk based evaluation tool to help local authorities identify and protect against potential risks and hazards to health and safety from any deficiencies identified in dwellings.

- Assessing properties against the Decent Homes Standard in the social housing sector. View website.
- Identifying life cycle costs for the purposes of business planning and valuation.
