Building Survey

Formerly known as a Structural Survey, the Building Survey report is particularly suitable for old, very large or unusual properties such as typical stone/thatched houses, Listed buildings, etc, or when specific advice is required on proposed alterations. It can be tailored to the needs of the client and type of building.  You will also require a Building Survey if the property is of non-traditional construction such as steel frame. This survey involves a comprehensive inspection of the property and a detailed in-depth report.  The features of the Building Survey include:

  • A detailed appraisal of the method and materials used in the construction
  • A technical assessment of significant defects and advice on appropriate further actions
  • Identification of less significant defects, general disrepair and shortcomings in physical condition , maintenance and design
  • A photographic inventory of the property defects, important structural elements and other issues
  • Market valuation
