Building Surveys (Structural Surveys)

The survey

A building survey is an in-depth inspection that is predominantly suited for old and unusually constructed buildings. It will not normally give advice on valuation.

What's involved?


A building survey will include a thorough building investigation and assessment of the construction and condition of a building. This is followed by an easy to understand report that will include references to visible defects. If appropriate, the report may recommend elemental or specialist investigations; this may include a detailed study of movement, timber decay, or testing of services.

What will be inspected?


The survey will inspect all visible and accessible parts of a building, this includes roofs, floors and walls, windows and doors, chimneys, cellars, garages and outbuildings. This does not include the investigation of enclosed or concealed parts of a building, such as sealed roof spaces and foundations.

What if I have concerns?


You can request that certain areas are included in the investigation to cover particular concerns that you may have about the property.
