For a period property or one which is very dilapidated or of complex construction, a Building Survey is recommended. Once again, this is a detailed inspection of all accessible parts of the building but the report goes into more detail about individual parts of the building. It is in the nature of old buildings that there are different types of window, different types of ceiling etc. in the various rooms and these often require reporting individually. In the case of either type of survey, comments on the services are included after a cursory inspection but the testing of services is a specialist matter and tests have to be arranged separately. We can advise on this.
Once again, an insurance reinstatement valuation is included.
We constantly aim to provide a truly personal service and you may well get our answering service if we are out of the office or busy on another call. We invite you to leave a telephone message, with your contact number and we will respond swiftly to your message. We will then call you to take further information on the property you are interested in and provide a quote for the survey required.
Fees vary according to the type, size, value and location of the property and this will be covered at the time of taking your initial instruction.
Our surveys are usually turned around within 4 working days from the appointment time to receiving your report.
