There are two main types of property surveying which cover different levels of building inspection and are suitable for different types of residential property. A property survey should be undertaken and the results considered before you enter into any kind of contractual agreement.
Home Buyers Surveys
This type of survey is designed for particular types of homes, defined as "conventional in type and construction" and "apparently in reasonable condition".
This survey is less expensive than a building survey, (although more expensive than a valuation), and highlights any immediate problems or defects which will have an effect on the value of the property, allowing a purchaser to make a reasoned and informed judgement on whether or not to proceed with the purchase at the agreed price.
If you would like more information about this type of survey please e-mail any of our offices.

This type of survey is suitable for all residential properties and provides a detailed report on the construction and condition of the property. Because the level of detail is higher than the Home buyer's Report, a building survey is more expensive
You May Require A Building Survey
- If the property is of unusual construction
- If the property is old, dilapidated or in need of serious repai
- If the property has had extensive alterations
- If you are planning to convert or renovate the building in a major way
The report will include extensive technical information on the construction of the house, details about materials used in construction and a report listing all major and minor defects. The full building survey does not provide a valuation although this can be arranged as an extra report, on agreement with the surveyor.
