If your property was built in or before the 1850s, is listed, has had alterations, or is not in good condition, you will likely need a building survey.

What Does a RICS Building Survey Contain?

The Building Survey gives you a thorough assessment of the structure, condition, and construction of a property, as well as technical advice on any repairs needed.Beginning with a visual inspection and delving deeper into any potential issues, the RICS Building Survey Report will identify any serious defects or problems with the property and gives you technical advice on how these problems should be solved.

The Survey also advises on future maintenance issues, so that you can plan ahead, and highlights any potential legal issues that you might want your solicitor to investigate.

After discussions with you, one of our Chartered Surveyors will inspect the property and compile a RICS Building Survey Report. This Report is tailored to your specific requirements and follows best practice guidelines from the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors.

Does The Building Survey Contain a Valuation?

You can also add a market valuation and reinstatement cost assessment for a small additional fee. This is an accurate idea of the market value of a property based on the survey’s findings and an estimated cost of rebuilding a property in the event of total loss or substantial damage to a property that requires demolition and rebuilding.
