Home Buyer Survey / Home Condition Survey
This is a more in-depth survey that reports on what is visible to the surveyor at surface level. It is non-invasive meaning that the surveyor will not drill into walls, lift floorboards or move items that are in the way of inspection. It may well be suitable for more modern properties which are of standard construction and generally in a good state of repair. It can be very informative and is likely to pick up issues such as damp or subsidence that could impact on the property’s value and ongoing maintenance requirements.
Home Survey / Building Survey
This is the most thorough residential property survey and provides a more detailed report on the structure and condition of the building. It is highly recommended for older, listed, renovated or non-standard construction properties. The report will list any defects identified by the assessor and provide advice on relevant maintenance and repair requirements.
