This report focuses on highlighting matters concerning the subject property negatively affecting its value. This chiefly includes building and structural defects.
This survey provides an excellent ‘middle ground’ and remains the most suitable survey for the majority of those buying or selling property in England and Wales.
A single fault assessment is the ideal option where there is just one particular fault or problem with your property. One of the best value surveys.
"Many thanks to yourself and Paul for such a thorough and helpful service. We will be in touch again as and when we find a property we hope we can progress with." L Fleming, Bristol
