Pre-Purchase Surveys

This thorough inspection enables the client make a well-informed decision on the feasibility of purchasing a property, based on its current condition.

My Engineer’s Report covers a thorough inspection of all visual constructive aspects of a property.

It is self- explanatory and user friendly.

What the survey covers:-

Boundary and building regulations compliance are checked.

The external focus is on all visual aspects of the structure- walls, roof, windows, drains, fascia and soffit.

Drains are examined and manhole covers are lifted to assess the condition of sewerage and waste pipes.

Footpaths and boundary walls are evaluated and noted.

The condition of outdoor garden sheds is also recorded.

Internally, each room is evaluated for its

(a) appropriate suitability

(b) ventilation

(c) heating

(d) safety measures

Moisture levels are recorded and the possibility of rising damp is considered.

Wall and attic insulation in inspected as are the water tanks and cylinder.

Recommendations with regards to electrical and plumbing inspections are made.
