The good, the bad and the ugly

Our Building Survey, also known as a Structural Survey, has been developed over many years by our Chartered Building Surveyors in conjunction with feedback from our clients and is an easy to read document, describing issues clearly in plain English.

The first part of the report is called the Executive Summary, this is where our Surveyor will give a summary of the condition of the property , divided into Good, Bad and Ugly points.

Photos and sketches

During our many years of surveying we have come across most, if not all, types of problems associated with property. Here are a few that, as Chartered Surveyors, we feel are the ones that we come across most often during the course of our inspections.

Dampness, cracking, movement, cold bridging, condensation and Asbestos both externally and internally.

Within all our reports you will find that we utilise a selection of digital photographs and sketches that are relevant to your particular property and its problems. Our sketches have been commissioned exclusively for us and help to explain the problem or characteristic in more detail, these are also often highlighted within the photos and sketches using circles and ovals, as in some of our photos and sketches shown here.
