Building Surveys for home owners

What is a building survey?


A Building Survey (which can also be know as a Structural Survey) is the most detailed level of survey that Morgan Sloane Chartered Surveyors offer. A building survey is a comprehensive inspection of a property reported to suit both the property and your specific requirements. It is particularly suited to older buildings, those of unusual construction, or if it has previously been altered or extended. The Building Survey is also the best choice where you know there are defects that need attention, or if you are planning to make alterations or improvements to the property.  


A Building Survey covers all accessible parts of the property. From a comprehensive visual inspection of the external and internal elements of the building fabric and structure we are able to determine the construction and condition of the elements of the property. The report will describe the construction and condition of the building fabric, the extent and type of remedial repair required or the extent of further investigation or other advice required, and potential future maintenance issues. 


Building Surveys do not usually involve valuations but these can be provided additionally if required.
