The Building Surveys that REA Ltd provide comprise an inspection of properties that are usually being considered for purchase but can be carried out on any domestic dwelling. We look at a wide range of different aspects, including how the property is constructed, defects & deficiencies identified in the construction, and the cause of these and the required remedies, and maintenance issues and recommendations, so all key elements of the building fabric are covered.

The client friendly report that we provide is written in understandable prose and lists colour-coded condition ratings for the defects and maintenance matters. The report is written so that the defects are considered in relation to all the adjacent building elements, rather than split out into different sections, so that the cause and effect arising from any issues can be understood in context. The report is illustrated with photos for further clarity to help identify any issues and the location of these.

If you have a particular defect, or affected area, and are looking for diagnosis instead of a full building survey, we can help with this too. Our localised survey will focus on the relevant area and our report will provide a diagnosis of the building defects and provide appropriate recommendations for remedial works.

Our surveys can either be a full inspection of the property or a detailed inspection of a particular area of concern. A comprehensive technical report will be written after the inspection, detailing all of the defects that were found and listing all the recommended repairs that are required on the different elements of the building.
