When choosing to purchase a property, it is important to know whether or not any reparations or renovations are needed on the chosen property. A detailed survey provides a complete inspection of the property, including all visible and accessible areas of the property. Our surveyors will list all noticeable defects and any potential issues including structural damage, rot and mould. The conclusive report will list those defects in detail, documenting the potential cost of repairs and providing professional advice on what can be done to repair those defects. This gives you an accurate representation of the condition of the property.
