This survey covers the main external structure of the building for the purpose of identifying any urgent repairs if they are needed. The report highlights major defects, with an assessment to clearly identify the condition of key elements of the structure.
These intermediate surveys are suitable for more modern traditional properties that appear in reasonable condition. My Condition survey reports are not prepared in a standard prescribed format, but will provide more detailed information, identify the most important issues, and describe the defects identified with recommendations for remedial works. If you would like a condition report from a chartered surveyor in Hurstpierpoint and West Sussex, then please get in touch.
The scope of this survey involves the forensic examination of particular structural defects. Typical issues this will uncover include structural movement, settlement, cracking, damp penetration and roof failures. My report will identify the cause of the problems, their importance, and what needs to be done to remedy the defects.
These are the most comprehensive surveys that I provide, with a detailed inspection of both the external and internal fabric of the building, including outbuildings, as far as they are accessible. This type of survey is recommended for older or period properties, and can be tailored to your requirements. The report will provide an in-depth analysis of the construction and condition of repair, and includes advice on defects, repairs and future maintenance. Mains services are inspected but service tests are not included.
