What is a Building Survey?

Previously known as a Structural Survey, a Building Survey is an in-depth inspection of a property. It is the most comprehensive of the surveys available for residential properties and will provide a detailed evaluation of a property’s condition.

The Building Survey (Level 3) report will describe the condition of each element of the house and identify the property’s defects, their apparent cause, the urgency of repair, maintenance options and may also include an approximate costs of repair.

Building Surveys are conducted by Chartered Surveyors. It’s important to check that the surveyor you select is regulated by RICS, as they set the guidance for surveyors and this will ensure that the advice you are getting is independent, expert advice from appropriately trained professionals.

What is included in a Building Survey?

A full Building Survey will include:

  • A building inspection
  • A full survey report
  • A property valuation (only if specifically stated by the surveyor).

The survey will inspect all visible and accessible parts of a building, including roofs, walls, floors, windows and doors, chimneys, cellars, garages and outbuildings. Surveyors have a legal responsibility to discover and inform of any major problems with a property, so during the building inspection surveyors will actively search for potential problems and building defects.

This includes looking into cupboards and manholes, and an inspection of the services but it does not, however, investigate enclosed or concealed parts of a building, such as sealed roof spaces.

You can request that certain areas are included to cover particular concerns that you may have about the property. In contrast to the HomeBuyer Report , there is no specific format for the Building Survey report, so the surveyor is able modify a Building Survey to your needs.

If you wish to have a property valuation included in your survey you will need to tell the surveyor. However, if the surveyor you use for the Building Survey is approved by your mortgage lender, it can be used instead of a mortgage valuation.

The Building Survey Report

When the survey has been completed, your surveyor will produce a final report which will reveal whether the inspection has discovered any major and minor defects. The report will identify and describe the problems and their cause, provide recommendations for further investigation and an indication of repair costs, and state what could happen if the problem is not remedied.
