A building survey is a detailed investigation or inspection of the construction, building fabric and services of a property. It enables the building surveyor to highlight structural defects and other shortcomings of a maintenance or repair nature and to advise what impact its condition will have on the client. As part of the building survey, detailed plans, elevations and sections can be produced / commissioned prior to the purchase of a buildiing to faciltate necessary works. The building surveying team carries out a thorough inspection or measure of the building and its fixtures and fittings, plus services installations. This is to ensure the client receives a comprehensive report / drawing on the condition of the entire building. The final report follows a detailed examination of the fabric of the building by a professionally qualified Building Surveyor.
