Building Surveys

A RICS building survey (formerly  known as a structural survey) will provide you with a comprehensive structural report, recommended for most building projects. This provides detailed information about the structure and fabric of the building, including indication of defects, repair and maintenance options.


Gully Howard Technical are proud to offer the full range of surveys in the RICS Home Surveys Suite. This includes:

RICS Condition Report

This shows the condition of the property and highlights any urgent defects. It is most suited to newer homes and conventional properties.

RICS Home Buyer Report

As above, but includes a market valuation and insurance rebuild costs. This building survey also includes advice on defects that may affect the value of the property, together with ongoing maintenance advice.

RICS Building Survey

This is essential for larger or older properties, or when planning major works. This is the most comprehensive report and provides an in-depth analysis of the properties condition and includes advice on defects, repairs and maintenance options.
