Developing a professional response
Although referrals to the ‘specialists’ can help protect a surveyor’s liability, the responsibility can no longer be passed on to others. Faced with reoccurring dampness problems, homeowners and tenants are just as likely to blame the person who recommended the specialist in the first place. When asked whether they have faith in the damp proofing industry, our experience shows most surveyors reply with a resounding ‘No’. Yet pick up any condition report on older housing and you will be able find a specialist referral in most of them. So why do we do it?
This seminar will challenge this dominate culture, this established paradigm. It aims to be provocative and challenging day that will help surveyors break out of this wasteful, vicious cycle.
