Its a building inspectors report. The Engineer Survey’s your building and compilers a report based on certain criteria. This report is done before buying your property.
Basically its a report on the structural safety of a building. Our pre–purchase survey inspection report contains more than just structural issues.
It is a written report (with photographs) of the condition of a property, and items observed that may affect its value. It will tell you about any significant building defects or problems such as rising damp, cracking in the walls, safety hazards or a faulty roofs and any other structural damage that may affect the overall cost of the building.
The Report is more suitable where a purchaser is not interested in the other factors that affect a buildings value. We also provide these.
Surveys and inspections/reports are usually carried out before you exchange sale contracts so you can identify any problems with the property which could prove costly to repair.
Do I need a structural engineers report?
The reason why you should get a house survey/engineers report done before buying a house or rental property:
You will know in advance what the problems are, cracked walls, chimney damage etc
You are able to negotiate a lower price for the house so that you won’t have to pay to repair the problems, i.e. a roof replacement, and know approximately what these problems will cost
