Building Surveys - Full Building Surveys

The team of chartered building surveyors and/or other qualified/accredited experts specialise in delivering full building surveys tailor-made for you and your individual full structural survey requirements.

Chartered Building Surveyor Services

The Chartered Building Surveyor service offers a meticulous and highly-detailed approach when carrying out full building surveys. Customers should always be presented with complete full structural survey information on a property or project to make the most informed decisions. 


Full building surveys are essential for larger or older properties or if you are planning major works, but we recommend a level 3 building survey for any property being purchased to make sure everything is covered.

Building Survey Timeframes

Building Survey Services

There different types of building surveying reports, which include:

Condition Report (Level 1)

A Condition Report is the most basic of the three building surveyor services. It's designed for home buyers or homeowners who are seeking a professional and objective report on the condition of a property. They are often used for party walls, as they offer the basic outline of defects (only for part of the building).

Homebuyer's Report (Level 2)

A medium-standard report on a property’s condition. This is a house report compiled after a physical inspection of a property by one of the qualified/accredited building surveyor service team members, which provides property buyers with more in-depth information on the condition of the property compared to a Level 1 building survey report.

Full Building Survey (Level 3)

The most comprehensive report on the defects and remedies applicable to the property you are looking to buy. The full building survey covers all visible and accessible parts of a building including roofs, walls, floors, windows and doors. As part of building survey services, your expert surveyor will also look at any chimneys, cellars, garages and outbuildings. Architectural surveyors have a legal responsibility to discover and inform you of any major problems with any property surveyed.
