CONSTRUCTION SURVEY

There are various types of surveys available ranging from simple visual inspections through condition surveys of the property to full structural surveys with a geotechnical study of the existing ground conditions.

The most common type of survey for potential buyers is a condition survey which would involve the visual inspection of the structure looking for signs of movement or settlement, inspection of the condition of the roof, the condition of finishes internally and externally looking for signs of damp penetration or any signs of wood rot or deterioration of the wooden elements of the building, presence of cracks internally and externally and finally looking at the condition of the installations: Water, Electric, Gas, Sewage system and any Solar installations.

During the inspection other items may become apparent for example where the property may have been extended or altered previously.

Other inspections can include swimming pools, water deposits, garages, etc. the full extent of the survey would depend on the requirements of individual buyers.
