A Building Survey is suitable for all residential properties in any condition.
The report provides a full picture of the property’s construction and condition. Guidance is also provided for remedial works and associated impending problems – including estimated costs of repair/improvement works.
A Building Survey is likely to be needed if the property is, for example: of unusual construction; is dilapidated or has been extensively altered; or where a major conversion or renovation is planned. It can be tailored to the client’s individual requirements, so if requested, our surveyor’s can give you a more in-depth explanation to certain aspects of a property that may concern you. The report includes technical information on construction and materials as well as details of the whole range of defects – major to minor.
This service is broadly equivalent to RICS level 3, which is described on the RICS website at www.rics.org/homesurveys.
