RICS Building Survey
You should choose an RICS Building Survey if you’re dealing with a large, older or run-down property, if the building has been significantly altered or if you are planning major renovation works. This is a more in-depth report and includes details of the structure and fabric of the property.
The report includes:
- A thorough inspection and detailed report on a wider range of issues;
- A description of visible defects and potential problems caused by hidden flaws;
- An outline of repair options and the likely consequences of inactivity, and
- Advice for your legal advisors and details of serious risks and dangerous conditions.
An RICS Building Survey does not include a valuation. Estimated costs of repairs may be included as an option.
