Formerly called a Building Survey or structural survey, you should choose the building survey if you’re dealing with a large, older or run-down property, a building that is unusual or altered, or if you are planning major works. It costs more than the Home Survey Level 2 Report (HomeBuyer Report) because it gives detailed information about the structure and fabric of the property. During the survey we will use a thermal imaging camera which can help identify dampness in concealed areas and heat loss issues from the property.

The building survey is normally about 30 pages long, and includes a set of colour photographs.

We can email you a sample report so you can see what is normally included in the Building Surveys that Kennett Surveys produces.

This service includes an inspection and a report. It is designed for particular types of home. These are houses, bungalows and flats that:

  • are of traditional type and construction; and
  • are apparently in reasonable condition.

It identifies what the surveyor considers to be the most important issues, but does not go into the same level of detail as a Home Survey Level 3 Report (Building Survey).

The Independent Surveyors & Valuers Association has put together the following guide to help people choose the right type of survey for their needs.
We can carry out valuations for Purchase, Matrimonial, Inheritance Tax and Probate, Reinstatement Cost for Insurance Purposes and Right to Buy.

All valuations are carried out by an RICS Registered Valuer.

It is important to bear in mind that a mortgage valuation is for the benefit of the lender while a survey is for your benefit.
