Does A Building Surveyor Check Everything?

Does A Building Surveyor Check Everything?

Good question! We certainly endeavor to check as much as we can during a property survey.

As described on our building surveys page, we will survey the interior, exterior, roof structure, services, grounds and check for asbestos.

What’s Covered During a Survey?

As standard we check as much as possible. We believe it sets you in good stead if you have responsibility for a building. We generally cover:

  • Building Condition and Defects
  • Structural Movements and Subsidence
  • Damp problems: Rising damp; Penetrating damp;
  • Condensation; mould growth
  • Wet-rot, Dry-rot
  • Woodworm, Insect infestation
  • Heating, Plumbing and Electrical services
  • Drainage
  • External elements: Driveway and parking areas, Paths and paved areas, Fencing, Planting
  • Asbestos

This list is not exhaustive. You will be presented with a professional written report with all findings. This helps give you the confidence in purchasing your new property.
