Types of Property Surveys
Property always has a lot of technical terms. In case you have the intention of buying a property, you may consider carrying out a survey. A survey will help you analyse the condition of the property, as well as ensure you get value for money.
Unbeknown to most, there are multiple types of property surveys available, each suitable for different applications. Kirk-Brown Ltd is experienced in all aspects of property surveys, and we'll be more than happy to offer guidance and advice if you are unsure which one is suitable for you.
Building Survey:Previously referred to as the Structural Survey, it's an in-depth survey in which the surveyor inspects all visible and accessible parts of construction, including the roof, windows and flooring. The surveyor will typically spend a day on site then produce a detailed report on the condition of the building. The report should highlight any defects and significant issues which should be acted upon.
Mortgage Valuation Survey: This type of survey will only focus on the value of the property at the time. It does not go into any further details concerning construction. As the name suggests, this survey serves to prove to the lender that the property is worth the value.
Home Buyers Report: This is a more in-depth survey that goes further into looking into the condition of the property such as dampness and other hidden issues. This survey is carried out based on the directions of the home buyer to the surveyor.
Home Condition Report:This survey simply describes the condition of the property without going into too much detail; it's predominantly commissioned to identify any legal issues revolving the property such as boundary disputes. This survey is suitable for newer homes which are unlikely to experience structural component failure.
