Specific Defect Surveys

We’ll get to the root of the problem, recommend how to resolve it and how much it’s likely to cost.

Specific Defect Surveys investigate a particular structural defect on a building that has been identified in a pre-purchase report or because the building owner has become concerned about some cracking or evidence of potential damage.

Specific defect surveys are a focused structural survey that focuses on the cause of the defect, recommends what is required to rectify the issue, and most importantly how much the work is likely to cost.

A Home-Approved surveyor works with both building and homeowners and will inspect, report and advise on a range of building defects including:

  • Roof problems
  • Damp and condensation
  • Cracks, subsidence and trees
