Structural Building Survey

A full Building Survey from Chauntry Surveying Ltd gives you the assurance of a comprehensive report that will identify any potentially damaging and expensive problem areas within a property you are considering purchasing.

Our Full Building Survey covers the structural fabric of the building including:-

  • Foundations
  • Structural walls
  • Structural floors
  • Chimney stacks
  • Timber roof supports
  • Roof coverings
  • Damp proof course
  • Rain water goods
  • Timber defects

The survey identifies damp in any part of the building both rising damp and penetrative damp and includes any condensation problems.

Chimneys and roof structures are inspected for their structural integrity. Services such as gas, water, electricity, drainage etc are looked into on a cursory basis. Any alterations or extensions will be identified and advice will be given on their compliance with latest legislation.

Finally, the report advises on such legal implications as boundary walls, shared sewers etc and advice can be given on buildings insurance.
