Building Surveys

A more detailed survey and is especially useful for older, larger or non-traditional properties

This is a more detailed survey and is especially useful for older, larger or non-traditional properties e.g. Timber. This sort of survey can take up to a day to complete depending on the size of the property. A full-structural survey such as this provides a comprehensive report with a breakdown of the fabric and condition of the property, with detailed advice on necessary repairs and maintenance advice.Whilst the full-structural building survey is more expensive than the HomeBuyer’s survey, the main benefits include a thorough report that can end up paying for itself if a defect or issue is identified that allows for re-negotiation on the purchase price. If you would like to arrange for a survey then please contact us.

A building Survey does not include a valuation however the survey will often reveal issues that can be investigated and costed before any legal commitment to purchase. This will ensure that the price you are paying is correct in light of the recommended repair works, and could save you a significant amount.
