If you are purchasing a property you will want to ensure that there aren’t any hidden defects or surprises lurking within.
In order to ensure this, you will need to instruct an experienced RICS Chartered Surveyor to undertake a thorough pre-purchase survey.
Having a Full Building Survey undertaken in advance of purchase, ensures that a qualified and experienced Chartered Surveyor visits the property, fully inspects it and then finally confirms the findings in a thorough and comprehensive report.
A Full Building Survey is the most comprehensive and detailed pre-purchase survey that you can undertake in advance of purchasing the property.
The inspection covers all aspects of the property from the outside, to the inside, to the services to the ground.
The completed report should not only fully confirm and thoroughly explain the defect and issue within the property, but will also fully explain the cost implications of the defects.
The report will then conclude with numerous recommendations provided by the Chartered Surveyor who prepared the report, focusing on the repairs that are needed, the cost implications of those repairs as well as a number of recommendations of experienced and previous client approved contractors to complete the necessary construction work.
