What is a Residential Building Survey?
A Residential Building Survey is described by RICS as:
A comprehensive, tailored report, including a structural survey of visible and potential problems. This report is designed for large, older or unique properties.
A Residential Building Survey will include:
- Diagnosis of defects, and detailed advice on repairs and maintenance.
- A full description of the condition and construction of each element of the property.
- An overall assessment, including an overall opinion and summary and suggested further investigations.
The Building Survey can include:
- A Market Valuation.
- A reinstatement cost for buildings insurance.
