The Building Survey is best suited for older, larger and more complex properties and for buildings which require a lot of work. They can also be undertaken on more modern properties if this is the type of survey you would like to have carried out.
Compared to a Home Purchase Report, the Building Survey is a far more extensive and detailed report. It details the property’s construction together with a comprehensive assessment of its condition using a traffic light system to clarify the urgency of repairs.
The report will highlight any matters that require further investigation and will provide you with advice on short, medium and long-term maintenance issues that you will need to be made aware of.
The report will contain photographs of some of the defects along with any relevant environmental issues and matters which your Legal Advisers should check.
If you are in any doubt as to which survey is the most suitable for the property you are buying, please contact us by clicking here.
