essurveyWhen should I choose an Express Surveyors building survey?

You should choose a Building Survey if you want a report that is more detailed than a RICS HomeBuyer Report or RICS Condition Report, or if you’re dealing with a property that is:

  • Large;
  • Old;
  • In poor condition;
  • Unusual; or
  • Significantly altered and therefore not suitable for the RICS reports.

You’ll also want to choose this option if you’re planning major works on a property. It’s the most expensive type of survey but it provides you with greater detail about the structure and fabric of the property.

What does or report include?

A building survey (commonly known as a structural survey) ordered through Express Surveyors includes:

  • A thorough inspection of the property by a RICS qualified surveyor;
  • A detailed report on a wide range of issues;
  • A Market Valuation;
  • An outline of repair options and the likely consequences of inactivity;
  • Advice for your legal advisers; and
  • Details of serious risks and dangerous conditions.
