Our Building/Structural Surveys Service

For most people the purchase of their home is the most significant item of expenditure they will make in their lifetime. A Building Survey (or Structural Survey as it was previously known) is a detailed inspection of each of the external and internal elements of a property, as far as they are accessible. Once the inspection is completed a comprehensive written report is provided to you that includes photographs of particular issues of concern as well as advice on what to do next. We also provide extensive post-survey support by telephone and/or email so as you are as fully informed as possible before you make a purchase commitment.

Why get a Building/Structural Survey?

Contrary to popular belief the mortgage lender's valuation is not a survey and is not carried out for benefit of the borrower but rather it is an assessment of the suitability for a loan for the benefit of the lender. When investing significant sums of money on a property it makes sense to obtain an independent opinion of condition from an experienced Surveyor who works solely for you. The survey will establish the condition of the property in as much detail as possible and will allow you to make an informed decision on whether to proceed with the purchase. You can also use the information to re-negotiate the purchase price and to plan for future repairs expenditure.
