Residential Building Surveys

What is a Residential Building Survey?

A survey is a visual inspection of a property undertaken by a competent professional who understands buildings and building defects.  The impartial professional is able to inspect the property uninterrupted and provide you with a report on its current condition, existing defects, ongoing maintenance, and the risk of unforeseen defects which may be typical of the property type and age.

Why have a property survey done by an expert?

The purchase of a property is likely to be one of the largest financial investments you will make in your life.  Therefore, it stands to reason to spend a tiny percentage of this amount on having a survey undertaken prior to purchase.  It means, at very least you will go ahead with the purchase with peace of mind and your eyes open.  Alternatively, it may mean, that defects or legal issues are highlighted that can be investigated further prior to purchase.  Either way, you will make an informed decision on whether to make that property your dream home, with no nasty surprises.  Allowing you to enjoy making that house, your home.
