What is a Major Defects Report? Chris Newman may be able to help YOU!

What is a Major Defects Report?

IMGP2422A major Defect Report is similar in some respects to a building survey and a homebuyer survey. The level of inspection is usually between the two or close to the level of a building survey.

A Major Defects Report is often useful where a homebuyer report should not be carried out due to the age or type of property, or if the property is listed.
