VIEW ADVICE

Building Surveys by Allcott Associates | What to Expect

 

A RICS building survey is provided by our in-house team of RICS Chartered Surveyors. The building survey is very detailed and gives a comprehensive report regarding the current condition of the property.

 

The building survey is particularly useful when purchasing a property because:

 

● All defects to the property will be identified to allow
you to budget accordingly.
● The cost to rectify all defects will be included,
allowing you room for negotiation on the purchase
price of the property.

 

A Building Survey, or Structural Survey, is considered the most thorough property survey and can take several hours to complete as it examines all aspects of a property.

The Building Survey is suitable for all types of property, including property that is listed, unusual or old.

 

A Building Survey is particularly useful if you wish to have any further specific areas looked at, for example, the feasibility of adding an extension.

 

It is also ideal if you wish to perform renovation work to the existing property or if you want to ascertain the structural soundness of existing extensions.

The main details of the Building Survey include:

 

All major and minor faults found within the property and the implications of these faults.

How much the repairs for these defects will cost to rectify.

Testing for dampness of the walls, and results for these tests.

Testing of all woodwork for damp and woodworm, and the results of these tests.

An investigation into the condition of damp proofing, insulation, and drainage – although the drains will not be tested.

Technical information about how the property was constructed, and all materials which were used in the process.

Proposals for any further special inspections and subsequent work which may need to be done on the property, due to findings during the survey.
