Structural Building Survey
A Pre-Purchase Survey is an inspection carried out to ascertain the general condition of a property. A building survey will identify any obvious defects that would ordinarily be missed by the untrained eye, and report on these to the client whilst also outlining recommendations.
A Pre-Purchase Survey is frequently called a ‘structural survey’ or a ‘building inspection’ and is carried out on behalf of the potential purchaser of a property.
Pre-Purchase Surveys are generally carried out when the property has gone sale agreed and they are very frequently required by solicitors and lending institutions as they will highlight any planning or building regulation compliance issues and detail the extent of any remedial works required to refurbish a property or carry out any structural repairs.
Purchasing a house is probably one of the biggest financial commitments a person will ever make. Therefore many potential property purchasers find solace and peace of mind engaging the services of a competent and experienced professional to carry out a pre-contract inspection to highlight any issues with the fabric of the building and report these to the client.
There can be occasions where a house has been purchased only to find out that there are numerous defects attributed to the property.
