The most in-depth RICS survey and report available for residential properties, fully qualified Chartered Surveyors will assess every accessible part of the property for structural defects and potential issues. This survey type is recommended for non-traditional properties such as timber of steel frame, as well as properties that have had intensive alterations. The Building Survey is designed for older buildings, especially Listed properties or houses within a conservation area, as the reports can give advice on specialised maintenance.
The report is in-depth, with technical advice and details on the structure, any defects, and future or current maintenance. Any defects highlighted will also include advice on fixing the problem including costs and work needed. The report is not in a standardised format, so can be tailor made to meet your specific requirements and issues. Whether you have particular worries about a potential defect, or want to assess the future extensions or alterations, our RICS Building Survey is for you.
This mid level RICS survey and report is performed by fully qualified Chartered Surveyors, and is designed for modern properties built out of common materials. We recommend this survey be performed on modern properties older than 10 years built with traditional construction techniques, such as bungalows, houses or flats. The HomeBuyers Report highlights any structural issues or costly maintenance, as well as an inspection on all connected services and utilities.
This survey is vital for prospective house buyers, as the report will highlight any costly maintenance or structural issues resulting from hidden defects, informing the house buying process. The report even includes an independent valuation so you can assess if the asking price is fair, and a reinstatement valuation for insurance needs.
