Formerly called a Structural Survey, you could choose the Building Survey if you are dealing with a large, older or rundown property, a building that is unusual or altered, or if you are planning major works. It costs more than the RICS HomeBuyer Survey because it gives detailed information about the structure and fabric of the property. It includes:
- A thorough inspection and detailed report on a wider range of issues
- A description of visible defects and potential problems caused by hidden flaws
- An outline of repair options and the likely consequences of inactivity; and
- Advice for your legal advisers and details of serious risks and dangerous conditions
A Building Survey does not include a valuation although we will be able to provide this as an extra service should you require.
