A Building Survey will not only show you the structural integrity of a building but also tell you if it is suitable for passing safety standards, and if so, what kind of pass standards you need. If you’re looking at doing any major works on a property then a Building Survey is highly recommended, whether you’re planning a new house or retrofitting an existing one, or whether you’re conducting major refurbishment. You should use a Building Survey Birmingham company such as Sam Conveyancing to have your building survey completed.
A Building Survey will also tell you whether the property you’re buying has been properly inspected and meets local building regulations. It will highlight anything that could cause future problems, including issues with safety and fire risk, and this means you’ll know from the outset if the purchase is a good one, or if it needs further work.
A Building Survey will let you know the condition of the walls and flooring within the property, as well as determining whether the roof offers adequate protection against the elements. If you plan on doing major work to a property, such as installing new windows or doors, then a Building Survey will tell you the condition of the walls and ceilings. If there’s any doubt about the condition of the walls and ceilings, then it’s important to find out what condition they’re in, as part of the Building Survey will be a condition report which shows you the current condition of the walls. It should also give you information regarding any damp problems, as these can lead to serious problems with the quality of the building.
