Why it is important to have a building survey and what does caveat emptor mean?

Caveat emptor translated means buyer beware and is why you need to have a building survey to find out if there are any property problems within the property; the estate agent certainly will not advise you of any.

Bear in mind the building Surveyor that you employ will be the only person working for you with your interests a principal concern.

What do the circles and ovals mean in our building surveys?

The circles and ovals are a method that we use within our structural surveys and building surveys to highlight property problem areas so that you are not left wondering what the property problem is. In addition to this if the photographs do not we believe explain the property problem enough together with our survey report we also insert in one of our own survey sketches to explain the property issue further.

Our Good, Bad & Ugly surveys!

We would also like to introduce to you what we call our Good, Bad and Ugly structural survey which is a building survey, sometimes known as a structural survey, and is something that we have developed over many years, in fact several decades. We have listened to feedback from our clients (in fact we have not just listened to feedback we have had marketing company carry out research for us) and amended and altered our building surveys to make them easy to read, cover the points that you wish them to cover and describe property issues clearly and any associated costs as well as of course how to solve the property problems. The key factor we believe is that our surveys are easy to understand as they are written in plain English. In addition we use sketches and photographs having survey sketches drawn exclusively for us.

Specialised equipment and instruments we use as Surveyors

As building Surveyors we use various pieces of equipment that aid us in reaching decisions such as thermal imaging cameras and resistance meters.
