What is a building survey?

A building survey is the most comprehensive type of survey offered and looks at the property in great detail. It will include information on how the property was built as well as materials used and how these will affect its future. It will list visible defects as well as non-obvious ones and outline the repairs needed as well as what will happen if the work isn’t done.

The building survey also looks at key areas such as urgent or serious problems that are found. It also lists things that will need to be looked at to prevent further problems in the future or things that are already dangerous.

Do you need a survey?

The aim of a survey is to provide you with all the information you need when you are considering buying a property. For older properties or ones with non-standard construction, the higher level survey is a worthwhile investment as it involves looking into parts of the house that other surveys don’t cover.

"Great service from a friendly, local business and very cost effective too."
