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.
This is a mid-price range survey which gives you the option to have a valuation as well. It’s suitable for most residential properties built after 1800. We’ll look at all critical elements which may need urgent attention and advise you accordingly.
Our appraisal will determine any elements which may need urgent attention, so you can make an informed decision before you sign on the dotted line, budgeting for necessary repairs or re-negotiating the purchase price if necessary.
We inspect the interior and exterior of the main building and all permanent outbuildings, but we don’t disturb the fabric of the building by, for example, lifting carpets and floorboards or removing roof tiles, neither do we move furniture or empty cupboards. We also examine any visible elements of the electricity, gas/oil, water, heating and drainage systems, but we don’t test them.
