Investigating property problems

To solve property issues and make a home fit to buy or sell, it is often necessary to conduct a comprehensive site survey in order to identify the source of any problems and determine what solutions are needed. During the investigation our specialist surveyor will:

  • Conduct a thorough examination of the exterior and inside of the property
  • Determine the cause of any property problems
  • Utilise the latest technology to arrive at an accurate identification
  • Identify any related problems caused by the initial fault
  • Provide immediate consultancy over initial findings at the time of the visit
  • Deliver a full report to the client within three days of the initial visit

The report will describe exactly the scale and scope of any problem faced by the client, all observations will be noted along with detailed drawings if necessary, to allow fuller understanding of the nature of the problem. Whilst there is no obligation to follow up with our suggested repair work, all reports include a complete method statement and a breakdown of the pricing for repair work recommended to address the issue and get the property back on the market.
