Thank you again for your very thorough and helpful report. it will become the backbone of our efforts to maintain the house in the coming months and years, hopefully, if all goes well.
A Building Defects Report is useful when a full Building Survey is not required. If you’re worried that there’s something particular amiss with your property—for example, damp, structural cracks, subsidence, woodworm or poor workmanship—then this is the report for you, whether you already own the property or are considering buying it. We are regularly instructed to advise and report upon a variety of building defects, both actual and suspected.
We’ll provide a report which covers only the worrying aspect of the building, in detail, rather than a more general report, offering a full diagnostic survey and defect appraisal based on the observations we make. While focusing on one defect, the survey will still involve inspection of the whole property as well as its surroundings and external conditions which might have a bearing on the problem. Our report will also provide recommendations for the appropriate remedial action, establishing a strategy for repair.
