Building Surveying

Full Building Surveys

Whether purchasing a property to occupy or as an investment or taking a lease, it is essential to fully understand its condition and the cost of repair, together with its suitability for the intended purpose and potential cost of necessary alterations or refurbishment.

Previously known as a Full Structural Survey, the Full Building Survey is a very detailed report. We will examine closely the structure and condition of the Building and undertake a surface examination of the services.

Some restrictions may still exist to prevent complete inspection (such as fitted floor coverings, limited floor and roof access) but within these limitations, the survey will be complete.

Although Building Surveys are suitable for all properties, they are especially important for buildings that are:-

  • Older and/or listed
  • Unusual or non traditionally built
  • Dilapidated
  • Extensively altered or extended
  • Having known or suspected problems
