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.
