Providing In-Depth Analysis
Using both text and photographs, our Condition Survey will provide in-depth analysis of the condition of the property at the time that it was inspected.
Where appropriate we will comment on the standard of materials, components and workmanship that have been utilised in the construction of the building
We will also categorise defects identified within the property:
- Defects that are significant and need to be repaired, replaced or further investigated soon.
- Defects that need repairing or replacing but are not considered to be either serious or urgent.

We may also provide recommendations regarding property repairs along with indicative costings,
