What is a Building Survey?

Building Surveys / Structural Surveys

Building surveys involve a detailed inspection of buildings, and the preparation of a report that is designed to address the specific needs and interests of the client.

The extent of inspection and the method of reporting will be agreed when the client instructs a surveyor to proceed and will be confirmed in the Conditions of Engagement; including such matters as specialist reports (e.g. focus on services; environmental aspects etc). Guidance and detailed comment will be given on individual defects, cost of repair and any other aspects of concern.

Although a Building Survey is relevant for all types of modern buildings, it is particularly useful and informative for older structures, “Listed Buildings”, and those which have been extended, or are used commercially; for flats and other premises with leasehold title or as a preliminary to preparation of a Schedule of Condition.

Building Surveys were formerly called structural surveys but the RICS changed their name. Building surveys involve more detailed inspection of buildings, and preparation of a report that is designed to address the specific needs and interests of the client.
