Specific defect report

Defect Inspections

At some point along the way of purchasing a property, you may have been made aware of a specific issue or defect. This might have been after a Valuation or Survey Report, or else perhaps you identified the defect yourself on a property that you already own and you want the issue to be professionally investigated.

Either way, it can be beneficial to have a Specific Defect Inspection carried out on your behalf.

What do Specific Defect Reports Cover?

These detailed reports, which usually relate to a specific individual defect or a particular problem that has been observed in a property, offer a full diagnostic survey and defect appraisal based on the observations. The Defect Report also provides recommendations for the appropriate remedial action.

Typically such surveys could cover a serious structural defect such as cracked or bulged walls, sagging and uneven roofs, or dampness problems.

These surveys are suitable for all types of property including residential and commercial buildings.

"I have read your report again and I appreciate the level of detail and the effort you have gone to in surveying the property - thank you. You’re looking at properties every day and you know what you’re looking for – so you’ve seen things that I would never have spotted. You have opened my eyes on numerous defects on this property and am seriously thinking about leaving the idea of buying. The report was money wells spent!"
