Not all surveys are the same. The one you need depends on the type of property you are buying and whereabouts it is. There may be no point paying for a full building survey if you are buying a relatively modern build home, for example. Whichever type of survey you go for, though, the good news is that if it does uncover some issues with the building, you can often use these to reduce the price - assuming you want to go ahead with the purchase. The appropriate survey for you will be discussed before the inspection.
Designed in conjunction with the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) this report will cover most normal property types, giving general information and advice in plain English, on the property’s condition and potential problems. It will also provide a rebuilding cost figure for insurance, and a valuation.
The Building Survey
This type of survey is more suitable for older, larger or unusual properties, or those in particularly poor condition. It will assess each aspect of the property and can be customised to address your particular concerns. Photographs are added to this report to help illustrate the issues. Mark will talk to you directly about your requirements and explain any areas within the report to ensure full understanding.
