Full terms and conditions

N.B. Not all surveyors are the same!  We recommend experienced, locally-based, qualified Chartered Surveyors for  professional Building Survey inspections.

Mortgage lenders sometimes offer to arrange surveys via large corporate ‘panel’ firms, whose surveyors are under pressure to carry out several inspections per day, are generally less experienced, and are not always from the local area.




Building Survey

A Building Survey is a premium ‘Level 3’ RICS survey. These top-of-the-range surveys provide a very detailed description of a building’s construction and condition. Formerly known as ‘Full Structural Surveys’, these are ideal for period properties, buildings that you want to renovate or convert, or those that have already been extensively altered.

Building Surveys allow the surveyor to express extensive detailed advice, are typically at least 35 pages long, and illustrated with photos of defects and maintenance issues.  Carried out by a qualified MRICS or FRICS Chartered Building Surveyor a Building Survey is essential for properties older than about 1880, thatched cottages, larger homes with 5 or more bedrooms, and for buildings of non-conventional construction – or where you’re planning to refurbish, develop, convert or extend.

As well as covering all urgent and significant defects, a Building Survey will report on a wide range of less serious issues. You can even also tailor the report to your specific needs – by requesting that the surveyor comments on anything that’s important to you, such as the potential to extend the home or convert the loft.  A valuation is not normally included unless requested.
