Colleys Building Survey
A building survey gives you a detailed report on the condition of a property, including a broad guide to the cost of any essential repairs or maintenance. It also provides an assessment of value.
Why get a survey?
Sometimes it makes sense to get a building survey and not just a valuation. A building survey gives you:
- Peace of mind - we take a closer look at the property and report on any issues to give you more detail than just an assessment of value
- Better knowledge about potential problems - including the cost of essential repairs and maintenance
- A stronger bargaining position - you could be able to negotiate a better deal with the seller if you know there are problems with the property. A building survey could save you money
- Personal advice - you can discuss any specific issues or concerns directly with your surveyor
A building survey is our most comprehensive service and is particularly suited to large, older or individual properties.
