Building surveys

Building surveys involve the visual inspection of a property and subsequent reporting upon the condition of the various elements of the building fabric including structural matters and defects. A detailed report is prepared recording the nature and condition of the building on an element by element basis highlighting any defects, recommendations for repair and where necessary, the need for any further investigations.

These surveys are typically carried out pre-acquisition of freehold or leasehold interests, in order to ascertain the condition of a property and our reports will therefore provide broad indicative costs for carrying out any works required to address the issues raised. Alternatively surveys may be carried out on behalf of property owners seeking to ascertain the condition of and any future repairing liability of the building(s).
