FAQ: Commonly Asked Questions about Building Surveys

Building surveys can appear to be difficult, but the professionals at Peter Miko are there to explain the procedure and answer any concerns you may have.

What exactly is a building survey?

A building survey, usually referred to as a structural survey, is a comprehensive examination of the layout and condition of a property. Surveyors will assess the condition of the main structure as well as any outbuildings or surrounding land. Any problems, such as structural deterioration, required repairs, or potential safety hazards, will be noted in the survey report.

Why do I need a building survey?

You should approach the significant investment that is buying a home with as much knowledge as possible. A survey provides you with a thorough evaluation of the building’s condition so you can make an informed choice and see whether any expensive repairs are required before purchasing. Additionally, it gives you peace of mind knowing that the property has no serious problems that could end up costing you money in the future.

How much does a building survey cost?

The cost of a building survey depends on the size and type of the property. You can expect to pay between £300 to £1,000 for a standard 3-bedroom house. The fee typically includes the surveyor’s time to inspect the property, a written report outlining their findings, and a valuation of the property. The investment in a survey could save you thousands by identifying issues before you buy.

How long does a building survey take?

An average-sized residential building requires 3 to 4 hours for the survey alone. The entire property, both inside and out, will be visually inspected by the surveyor. They will examine the drainage, heating systems, windows, flooring, walls, ceilings, and more. Within 3 to 5 business days of the survey’s completion, you will receive the complete written report with all of the survey’s findings.

A building survey should reassure you about your house acquisition and let you know if any repairs are required that you should pay for.
