Structural Surveys and Reports for Your Property

reportingWe all want our home or property investment to be safe and sturdy; that means repairing any defects.

Perhaps an initial inspection has already shown a problem, or you have discovered something yourself – mould in the corner, a bowing wall, cracks in the floor, etc.- and you’re planning to sell the house, or instead would like a structurally sound house to live in, and you’re wondering what to do…

We advise you – before taking any action to repair the structure – to get a thorough structural inspection and report completed.

The Procedure

After a specific problem has been identified (even if you’ve caused something yourself – accidents happen!), the first step is to get an in-depth survey.

The engineers will inspect the problem – whether it’s a damaged window lintel, crack in a wall, subsidence, etc. – to ascertain the seriousness of the issue. And as well as giving a detailed structural engineers report of their findings, they will also include estimates for how much it will cost to repair.

Depending on the complexity of the problem and the time taken, the cost of a survey can vary. For information regarding the price, it’s best to email or call us directly so we can give you a more personalised response.

Do You Need a Structural Survey?

If you’re planning to sell your property, it’s always worth considering dealing with any defects as a third of house sales still fall through, or you could be letting yourself in for lengthy negotiations or less than reasonable demands from a potential buyer late in the process.  If you have doubts about any specific problems with the property, or they are obviously in need of repair, the best option is to get them surveyed.

This way, you can relax knowing what needs to be done or that everything is okay when you intend to sell.

And even if you are not planning to move —it’s best to get any potential problems looked at promptly to limit more costly repairs later down the line.

Whether you own and live in the home yourself, rent it out or help someone else manage the property, it’s important to repair any problems as soon as possible, including pre-sale.  Not doing so could cause unnecessary headaches down the line.
