Building surveys are wide ranging inspections of property, which are useful for getting a detailed evaluation of the condition of the property you are either living in or buying. There can be different “levels” of report, which go into detail about the condition and other aspects of the property.
Whilst a structural survey London is a useful report for most property, these types of surveys can be most appropriate for:
- Listed buildings
- Older property
- Unusual constructions
- Buildings you expect to renovate or alter
- Buildings which have already been altered or renovated
A building survey will look at all visible and accessible parts of the property, including the roof, walls, floors, windows and doors, chimney, cellar, garages and outbuildings as appropriate. The building surveyor is legally responsible to discover and report on any major concerns within a property, so we actively look out for potential problems and defects with the building.
