What is Checked in a Building Survey?

 

In a building survey, all primary services will be checked, which include electrical installation, gas, water storage systems and plumbing, room heating and water heating.

 

The surveyor will inspect every room in great detail. Your surveyor will assess the general room condition, and moisture readings are taken to evaluate for dampness.

 

Surveyors will inspect the roof construction and the roof space (attic) and check any insulation for suitability.

 

Chimneys and guttering will be surveyed using specialist cameras or drones if required.

 

The inspector will assess the inspection of woodwork such as windows, doors, and double glazing to see if it meets the regulations.

 

All outside areas will be inspected as part of a survey, including trees, shrubs for root intrusion, boundaries for their legality and the whole property will be checked for possible subsidence.

 

Structural Building Survey

Structural surveys are important on old properties and buildings constructed from older materials or where the overall construction is unusual. Properties such as these regularly have defects that are difficult to assess to the untrained observer. 

Typically older properties suffer from structural integrity issues such as cracks and subsistence. The cost of repairs and remedial actions on old properties are often high, so a survey will ensure you are fully informed. The survey can also include the surveyor’s estimated repair costs for any required work. Repair cost estimates can be helpful in negotiating if any issues are found when buying a property.

 

Any property with adaptations or extensions should have a survey. Poor renovations or the removal of walls can have a catastrophic impact on structural integrity. As commercial surveyors, we can also provide architectural drawings or work with your contractors for new constructions, renovations or building extensions.

 

Our Structural surveys start from £850, including VAT and can be ordered directly through our website.
