Buying a property is likely to be one of the most significant purchases you make in your life, and can seem daunting. As a buyer, having a survey provides you with detailed information as to the condition of the property – highlighting any elements that may need repair or renovation. This gives you the complete picture before you progress any further – limiting the possibility of costly surprises once you move in.
A full Building Survey Report is the most comprehensive type of inspection and condition survey report. Suitable for all types of residential and commercial properties, a Building Survey Report provides a buyer with full details of the construction and condition of the property, covering both minor defects as well as major repair works. The completed report will comment on the condition of all walls, floors and roofs throughout the property, both inside and outside of the main building and all permanent outbuildings.
From the outset, this gives buyers a full understanding of the property’s condition and what expenditure will be required if they go ahead with the purchase. In some instances, where a survey reveals lots of defects, buyers are able to use the report to renegotiate the purchase price.
As with all reports provided by Insight Surveyors the Building Surveyor who undertakes the report will be available before and after undertaking the survey to answer any questions and further explain the items raised.

The Level 3 Building Survey Report is a bespoke report that is catered to the individual requirements of a purchaser. As well as providing an in-depth review of the property’s condition, it can also be tailored to report on elements of a property including design, materials, construction techniques, and services.
Building Survey Reports are suitable for all property types but are particularly recommended for older properties or those that are known to be in poor condition. Other types of property that benefit from the in-depth nature of a Building Survey Report include buildings that have been unusually constructed or that have undergone alteration works.
