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.
Our highly detailed Building Survey Reports are recommended for buildings with an individual character and history. That includes buildings which are listed, built before 1800, of unusual construction, or have been extensively altered or will be altered in the future.
We’ll pay particular attention to any element which causes you concern. This could include outbuildings, grounds and boundaries as well as the fabric of the building. We’ll advise you what needs urgent attention or further investigation and the likely cost of repairs.
Homebuyer Report vs Building Survey – what is the difference?
In-Depth Building Survey
A Building Survey is highly detailed. The scope is similar to our Home Buyer Report, but here you have a far more in-depth analysis of the findings. If you are interested in purchasing a flat or house that requires a lot of work, particularly a larger or older property, this type of survey is the one we’d wholeheartedly recommend.
Our full Building Survey will not only describe visible defects but also take into consideration potential issues caused by hidden flaws. Buying a property is a huge financial commitment, so knowing exactly the condition of whatever you’re buying is sensible, if not essential.
