A Building Survey (formerly known as a Structural Survey)
is a detailed report regarding the condition of a building. It is suitable for the majority of property types, especially older buildings, listed buildings, buildings where various extensions have taken place or are of unusual construction.
The report is provided following a detailed inspection of all accessible areas of the building, pertinent outbuildings and grounds. A detailed description of the construction is provided together with recommendations for short, medium and long term repairs and improvements. A schedule of photograph's regarding existing, potential or developing problems and defects is provided together with recommendations for any further specialist reports.
We provide the report in PDF format by e-mail so other parties such as the client's legal advisers
can be furnished with a copy or part of, as required.
The report will clearly recommend any action to be taken prior to commitment to purchase.
Our Building Surveys include:
description of visible defects & potential problems
outline of repairs needed & consequences of no action
advice on services, risks & dangerous conditions
a schedule of photographs of problem areas
