Building Surveys (Structural Surveys)
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.
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.
