This type of Condition Survey is suitable if you large, older or run-down property, a building that is unusual or altered, or if you’re planning major works. It costs more than the Homebuyer Report & Valuation 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, but your surveyor may be able to provide this as a separate extra service. We do not provide cost estimates of repairs identified.
