Property Survey

To complete any work via grant funding, a full survey of the property will be required to prove that the property meets all the funding criteria, for each individual measure.

The survey will be completed by fully qualified RETROFIT ASSESSORS.

To ensure the building is safe and check for any additional work that may be required to keep the work within regulation. (Be aware, that sufficient ventilation is required and certain measures may not be installed without it). 

If required an EPC will also be completed for the property.
