The House Purchase Survey takes features from the Full Building Survey, but reduces it to a more concise, manageable document at a lower price. In doing so, it provides an excellent 'middle ground' and the most suitable survey for most property purchasers.
The report is designed to assist a buyer of a property to make a reasoned and informed judgement on whether to proceed with a purchase. Its purpose is to report not just on matters which affect the property's value, like the HomeBuyer's Survey, but also on defects which affect the internal living environment and on maintenance considerations.
The subheadings covered mirror the Full Building Survey (including matters like structural movement, ventilation, damp, timber joinery etc.) and the main difference between the two lies in the level of detail. As such, it is suitable for any type of property - large or small, residential or commercial.
Building surveys involve a detailed inspection of the property and a report designed to address the specific needs and interests of the client, whilst providing a comprehensive overview of the property and its features. In this way, it is bespoke and thorough - the top level service from Building Surveyors designed by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.
A Full Building Survey can include arrangements for specialist tests, like structural calculations or drainage assessments. Guidance and detailed comment is given on individual defects and costings can be included.
A Full Building Survey is best carried out by qualified, experienced and independent Building Surveyors, who is a specific expert in diagnosing and predicting structure and building defects. Our expertise in finding defects early could save you thousands.
If you're on a tight budget, our Chartered Surveyor Richard offers Verbal Acquisition Advice. Instead of paying the price of a full written report, you can pay for Richard to attend the site, make the investigations he would usually make for a written building survey and report directly to you that day - by telephone or face-to-face. You save money, but still get the information you need.
Our high quality surveying services have left a trail of happy clients across East Sussex. See more on our testimonials page.
