A building survey is the inspection and investigation of the construction and services of a property in sufficient depth to enable a surveyor to advise what impact the condition of that property will have upon a client/owner. The extent of the survey must be sufficient to enable the surveyor to advise upon any future problems that may occur with the various components of the building. The surveyor must also be in a position to advise the client/owner of where the property does not meet the requirements of modern legislation and of any alterations that must be carried out in order to comply with those requirements. It is important to bear in mind that the building survey is the consideration of what is found applied to the particular needs of each client.
So what are the different types of building survey?
It is evident through the growing number of instructions that we receive, that property managers, landlords and tenants are becoming increasingly aware of the benefit of appointing a qualified surveyor to carry out tailored building surveys to suit particular client requirements.
