This is my most popular and frequently requested service. The pre-purchase survey is often referred to as a Building Survey, Structural Survey or a Condition Report – all descriptions are the same report. More precise details can be found in the Society of Chartered Surveyors guide – found here (https://www.scsi.ie/documents/get_lob?id=6&field=file )
My reports follow the SCSI/RICS property survey templates and will be a minimum of 40 pages and up to 80 pages with annotated photos, an opinion, list of repairs, further investigation, suggested upgrades and improvements. Many of my clients still refer to the report for years after the survey – as their schedule for maintenance and repair.
My unique range of experience in Architecture, Surveying and Construction – allows me to give the appropriate and considered attention to each property. In turn ensuring you are able to make an informed decision and not purchase a property disaster. I take my surveys and your interests seriously – I know the typical defects to each age and type of house.
I cover mainly the south east counties and on request can survey properties in the Dublin area.
