Building Surveys And Structural Surveys

Building Surveys And Structural SurveysA Building Survey known formally as a full Structural Survey is a detailed and in-depth inspection of a property. It is not a basic Mortgage Lenders Valuation Report.

Which? Magazine and the Council for Mortgage Lenders advise that you obtain a Survey before you purchase a property and not just rely on a Lenders Valuation which is not a Building Survey.

Purchasing a property is the biggest financial commitment that most people make in their life. Paying a modest amount for a MGR Associates in-depth Building Survey will enable you to make an informed decision and give you peace of mind. It also allows you to negotiate a reduction in purchase price from the defects found, on average this can be up to £4,000 – recouping your initial survey outlay many times.

MGR Associates’ Building Surveys are comprehensive and cost effective. They are more detailed than the standard Home Buyer’s Report. The Building Survey can be tailored to suit your needs if required. The final report being some 20 pages plus and takes on average 4/5 hours on site to complete.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (which MGR Associates are regulated by) produced A Guide to Property Surveys. It can be downloaded here http://www.rics.org/propertysurveys/
