Full Structural Building Surveys are essential when an incredibly detailed report is needed. At London Chartered Surveyors, we inspect the structure and construction of the property in our Building Surveys and then conduct a surface examination of any connected utility services.
Occasionally, we are restricted from completing a full inspection due to constraints such as fitted floor coverings or limited roof access, but regardless of these limitations, we will complete a full structural building survey and issue a comprehensive report according to RICS guidelines.
Every building survey includes a check of the following:
- Internally: rot and woodworm, damp and condensation, walls, floors and ceilings, chimney breasts and joinery
- Externally: chimneys, roof, gutters, main walls, doors and windows, drainage and boundaries
- Roof space: detailed inspection of the roof
- Garages, brick outbuildings and conservatories
RICS Building Surveys
According to RICS, a Building Survey is categorised as Level 3, which makes it the most detailed RICS survey available. It looks for any problems or defects that may be concealed by flaws and provides a summary of the repair options and likely consequences of not taking any action, in addition to highlighting any visible defects.
Are You Planning To Extend Your Property?
Once the sale has been completed, you may want us to carry out a feasibility report for you assuming that the planning permission applied for will be granted. We also specialise in prioritising which works need to be completed first and planning maintenance work.
A building survey does not usually include a valuation. However, if you need a valuation, please let us know.
A building survey report will also include issues which will be useful for your legal adviser, hazardous materials, noise and disturbance, means of escape, energy efficiency and any health and safety concerns you may have.
