This provides a fully comprehensive and detailed evaluation of the buildings construction and condition. The report we provide will detail every aspect of the house and identify any defects, the cause of defects, any urgent repairs and maintenance issues etc.

A building survey can more than pay for itself. Not only will it give you peace of mind but also advises of any existing or anticipated defects within the premises and advice on the remedies available, together with anticipated cost consequences. This enables you to fully evaluate matters prior to proceeding and finalising the purchase of the property.

On completion of the survey Brittain Hadley can provide a report to help you budget for anticipated works over a 5-10 year period.

Building Condition Report

Provided in a set format, this gives a clear, concise picture of the condition of the property. It's aimed at buyers who would otherwise rely on a lenders mortgage valuation.

The Condition Report is backed by the RICS and written in plain English, using the easy to follow ‘traffic lights’ ratings system. The report also offers details of urgent defects and a section offering advice for legal advisors.

The report will not, however, comment upon services or installations in detail, nor will it allow for any detailed opening up or investigation. It does not recommend methods of repair or associated costs but simply states that defects are present.
