Building Survey

(Formerly Structural Survey)

We market the services of independent Surveyors.  Surveyors pride themselves on a high standard of work.  We can offer Schedules of Condition with regard to leases, Property Reports, Schedules of Dilapidations, Section 18 Valuations, Scott Schedules, Commercial Building Surveys, Structural Reports, Specific Defects Reports.  Note these are not for bank lending but are to advise you how much we feel the property is really worth.  If you have a property problem we may even already have written an article on it and we would refer you to the many articles we have on our free property articles page click here  we use independent surveyors who are more than happy to chat. Please Free Phone us on 0800 298 5424 and Surveyor will call you back.

This report is really the best report to open your eyes to all of the potential or actual problems in your new business.  Our structural survey report goes in depth on all areas from minor to major and looks at the property from top to bottom, inside and out.  You will be advised on areas that concern the Surveyor, why he feels there is a problem there and in most instances what he feels you need to do in order to rectify them.  Our structural survey report include full colour photography, technical definitions, and a Helpline service after the report has been sent to you.

You should also be able to ask the Surveyor to advise you on specific areas of concern or perhaps alterations or extensions that you may be considering within the Building Survey (or structural survey).

The Building Survey is suitable for any property old or new (although people tend to think of it more in terms of older, unusual properties).  It is particularly useful if the property is older or has been extended or altered or perhaps been kept in a poor state of repair.  However, this may mean that your decision about which building to make an offer on is more informed from the start (it should be borne in mind that these days they are not designed to replace a full independent survey, however the cost of this will usually be reduced as you are a repeat customer!).
