Building survey or also known as full structural surveys
Building surveys or full structural surveys are the most comprehensive survey available. In our opinion this is the only survey suitable for houses built pre-1930. Larger or significantly extended post 1930’s properties are also more suited to a Building Survey. This report is accompanied by annotated photographs illustrating the main defects we have found.
Every element of the building’s fabric is inspected and commented upon.
We can also comment on any alterations you are considering, provided we are informed of these details in advance of our site inspection.
If a building has recently been refurbished, in our experience it is not safe to assume it is in top condition as not all construction works are undertaken to the highest standards for a varying number of reasons.
