Structural surveys are a thing of the past. Our clients expect a greater depth of investigation before purchasing a property, whether this is for occupation or investment purposes. Structural surveys are described as technical due diligence. As well as considering the general condition of the property, we can investigate a range of other issues and carry out checks on the building. These include building regulations compliance, occupancy capacity, maintenance costs, insurance reinstatement costs, adjacent construction proposals, and party wall and easement issues.
This approach helps to minimise the number of unknown risks an investor is exposed to when purchasing a property.
