The Building Survey provides a more detailed picture of a property’s construction and can be carried out on practically all residential properties.
The report is bespoke and tailored to your requests.
It is most suitable when the building is less conventional. This could be because it is very old, it has been built using unusual construction methods, or it is dilapidated. Similarly, it can be very informative if a building has been extensively altered.
A full description of the property including measurements of the structural elements to ensure that the structure of the property is understood.
A list of all the major elements of the property and services with a comment as to condition urgency, and suggestions as to methods and costs of repairs if appropriate.
Investigations that should be undertaken by legal advisers before exchange of contracts
A summary of items requiring either urgent repair of further investigation.
Identification of serious risks to the property and people.
A market valuation and insurance re-instatement cost can be added if required.
Due to the time taken to measure the property Building Surveys cost considerably more than the Homebuyers Report, however you should bear in mind that they are unlikely to tell you any more infomation about serious defects to the property than the Homebuyers Report.
It is considered that the Homebuyers Reports will be suitable for most clients.
