Property Purchase and Building Surveys

EAP’s team of experienced surveyors located in Colchester and Cambridge has for many years provided a range of services, the most common of which are outlined below.

Property Purchase Surveys

Buying a home is a major investment, therefore ensuring that the property is sound, becomes high on the agenda of a prospective purchaser. A Property Purchase Survey will advise on significant aspects of the condition of the property to a perspective purchaser. Minor items of disrepair which do not materially affect the value will not normally be reported.

Building Survey (Structural Survey)

A Building Survey is an investigation and assessment of the construction and condition of a building and will not normally include advice on valuation. The survey will generally include the structure, fabric, finishes and grounds; the exposure and testing of the services are not normally covered. This type of survey is appropriate for large, older or non-standard buildings and can also be adopted in the purchase or lease of a commercial building.

Schedules of Condition & Dilapidation

A Schedule of Condition will record condition of the building at that particular time and may be supported by photographs. It is usually prepared at the beginning of a lease as opposed to a Schedule of Dilapidation which will identify wants of repair normally at the the end of a lease. EAP Property Services Ltd have many years of experience in preparing schedules for commercial, industrial and residential property.
