If required, your surveyor will also talk you through each issue and show you the problems in the property to ensure that you understand the results.
If your property is a listed older building constructed with unusual materials and either has or plans to undergo any reconstruction work, then Kevin Shaw and Associates’ Building Survey is for you. Your survey will be carried out by a RICS verified chartered surveyor with a wide experience of surveying a variety of different building types. This survey is more in-depth than any other, looking behind furniture and below floorboards.
