Pre-purchase surveys are most often instructed by a purchaser once an offer has been accepted on a property. Buying a property is the biggest investment an individual will make. A pre-purchase inspection will identify any major defects such as subsidence and less obvious, uninsurable defects like rising damp.
Our Building Survey report will use plain language and annotated photographs to explain any matters of concern. The report will ensure that you are able to make an informed decision and will either give you the peace of mind that you are making a sound investment or provide the ammunition to negotiate on price, or to arrange for necessary works to be carried out.
The cost of a building survey will depend on the size and complexity of the house that we are asked to survey. Our Building Surveys start from £600. Please call or email us to receive a Building Survey quote.
