If you are you buying a property in Nottingham then a pre-purchse Building or Homebuyers Survey may help avoid future expenses.
We can provide pre-purchase general surveys or bespoke reports investigating particular defects.
Our suveyors specialise in surveying and valuing residential property in Nottingham , offering a rapid turnaround with efficient and competitive service.
A Building Survey will tell you about the condition of the property including the state of the chimneys, roofs, rainwater goods, roof edges, walls, floors, ceilings, partitions, windows and doors. We can tell you whether there is any structural movement or settlement, wet rot, dry rot, woodworm or damp problems. We give you an overview of the services such as the electrical installations, boiler, central heating, hot and cold water.
Our pre purchase Building/ Structural Surveys are prepared in a standard RICS format providing a thorough investigation of a property’s construction and can be carried out on practically all residential properties. They include:
A full description of the property including measurements of the structural elements to ensure that the structure of the property is understood.
A list of all the major elements of the property and services with a comment as to condition urgency, and suggestions as to methods and costs of repairs if appropriate.
Investigations that should be undertaken by legal advisers before exchange of contracts
A summary of items requiring either urgent repair of further investigation.
Identification of serious risks to the property and people.
A market valuation and insurance rebuilding cost can be added if required.
Due to the time taken to measure the property Building Surveys cost considerably more than the Homebuyers Report, however you should bear in mind that they are unlikely to tell you any more information about serious defects to the property than the Homebuyers Report.
It is considered that the Homebuyers Report will be suitable for most clients.
Bespoke reports covering a specific defect.
Often required by purchasers or insurers concerned about fractures or obvious past movement of properties or existing building owners considering making an insurance claim or requiring reassurance regarding fractures of other movement that is recently noticed.
These matters can usually be dealt with by a short visit and letter reducing fees considerably compared to a full structural survey of a property.

A valuation of the property and estimation of reinstatement cost for insurance purposes is included as standard in both our Building Survey and Homebuyers Survey reports.
