Lea Hough’s team has recently been instructed to undertake a number of Quinquennial Survey Reports on several churches in Lancashire, Cumbria and Greater Manchester.  

Quinquennial Surveys, which are due every five years, are required to ensure that historic, ecclesiastical properties remain in good condition and that any repairs and maintenance works that are needed are identified.

The commission will see Lea Hough’s team carry out a full survey of the condition of sixteen Methodist churches located in the Oldham, Kendal and Lancaster areas.

Lea Hough’s team are also undertaking a further series of Quinquennial Reports for Church of England faith buildings.

Quinquennial Reports are required to be undertaken by Methodist Churches, and Lea Hough’s Building Surveyors are able to assist with this requirement. Our team can be appointed to inspect every five years, and to assess the condition of the external structure and fabric, internal condition and finishes, services and external grounds. Following our inspection, we prepare a condition-based report that assesses any disrepair that exists, along with providing recommendations for any remedial works, along with anticipated budget costs.

The reports assist those that manage the upkeep of churches to identify and carry out repair works over the forthcoming five year period. Where repairs and upgrades are needed, a Quinquennial Report assists in identifying the urgency in which works are required, allowing for these to be scheduled.

Any repairs to older buildings are likely to incur significant costs, and our team are able to advise on suitable contractors and also a budget for the necessary repairs and upgrades.
