Building Surveys

A building survey is most suited to large properties, old buildings and properties that are unoccupied and/or in disrepair.

Our expert surveyors provide a detailed report on the condition of the property comprehensively setting out structural and other defects and providing a summary with our recommendations.

While a building survey does not normally include a valuation, if you require this in addition to the report we can arrange for it to be undertaken at the same time for an additional fee. You may find this saves you time and money in the long term.

In a survey all aspects of the building fabric will be considered and a report typically includes:

  • Detailed examinations of the floors, walls and ceilings both internally and externally.
  • Information on any signs of settlement, damp or timber decay.
  • Our professional opinion on the state and condition of all roof coverings, gutters and downpipes.
  • Comments on the visual condition of service installations (no separate tests are carried out).
  • A full appraisal of the current condition of the property including essential & immediate repairs.
  • Advice on items and issues that will need attention in the near future.

As a part of our service any particular items of concern can be addressed and additional advice and guidance given by our expert surveyors.

The timescale for a Building Survey is approximately 4–7 days depending on access.

5/ 5 Stars

"I have dealt with Castles Surveyors for over 15 years and can honestly say that they are the only company that I would use myself or recommend to friends and family. To say that they are experts in their field would be an understatement. Frank Hill and his team have always gone the extra mile whether it be with flexible appointment times or the aftersales customer care where they will actually take the time to speak to client to discuss any points highlighted in their reports. A truly great company with ‘old school’ customer care that’s rarely found these days. Top Marks!!!! "
