Our surveys identify condition, cost and risk associated with the property, always ensuring our advice is bespoke to the type of acquisition.
Building Vendor Surveys
Similar to a building survey, but prepared by the vendor in advance of marketing the property, the vendor survey will assist in reducing delays in the sale completion. The report enables the vendor to have the building ready for the market to maximise the potential for a quick transaction.
