What makes a good property survey?

A good property survey is one that contains relevant information that will assist in helping you make an informed decision regarding the purchase of a house or commercial property. 

The property survey report should contain critical information to help potential purchasers understand the condition and risks that are present in the building, which may not be obvious to the untrained eye. These may include defects in the brickwork, areas of damp, moisture ingress, timber rot etc.

More often than not, a property survey is carried out by a qualified building surveyor, however, some firms will use unqualified surveyors with little experience. Finding the right survey and the right company for you is made all the easier with Alpine Surveys.
