A detailed bespoke building survey report is suitable for most properties built prior to 1930 or any subsequently constructed which have been significantly altered or extended. It is also the best choice when a client wishes to undertake significant alterations or additions and requires specific advice. I will inspect all accessible areas of the property but will not lift carpets or move large furniture items unless this has been arranged in advance. Where possible, I will test water pressure, central heating and the flow of water through the drains, but will not carry out electric or drainage tests, however, will advise if these are considered necessary. I will include photos of various elements of the property and highlight notable defects. A list of useful contractors and bodies is also included. A summary of defects will be included, however, costings are excluded.
In a nutshell, a building survey
will determine lingering structural defects or faults within the property before you proceed with purchasing or renting the property.
