Our Services Include:
Commonly referred to as a RICS HomeBuyer Report, this is a licensed survey recognised by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors designed to provide a detailed assessment of the individual elements of the property including structural condition and both the interior and exterior of the property.
The inspection will normally last around two to three hours, dependent on the size and style of the property and will provide details as to any potential repairs or defects that have been noted within the property. A HomeBuyer report may include a market value of the property and is normally conducted on newer properties that are less than 150 years old.
As experts in surveying all property types, a building survey encompasses a thoroughly detailed report and assessment of the condition of a property, including all visible and accessible areas. It is always recommended to request a building survey when considering a property, as this report will highlight any potential defects that may need resolving before the property is fit to live in.
Ensuring that a property is safe and structurally sound before entering into negotiations is essential. A commercial building survey is designed to highlight any potential problem areas, outlining the extent of these defects as well as providing advice as to the potential costs involved in repairs or upgrades that may need to be made. A building survey is better suited to drastically altered properties or older properties including listed and period properties.
