BOIC LTD (Consultancy) - Building Surveyors & Associated Chartered Building Surveyors
Buying a property is probably the largest financial investment you are likely to make. A professional survey, carried out by a Chartered Building Surveyor will help you reach an informed decision about the overall condition of a property.

It is important to recognise that a Mortgage Valuation Report is usually prepared on behalf of the mortgage lender and as such, serves to establish only the value and type of the property.

We can offer 2 main types of pre-acquisition survey:

RICS HOMEBUYER SURVEY & VALUATION
This is produced to a standard format and is designed specifically for particular types of residential property, which are both conventional in type and construction and which appear to be in reasonable condition. It focuses on urgent or significant problems, which are likely to affect the value of the property. This form of survey also includes a professional opinion as to the present market value of the property.

BUILDING SURVEY
This form of survey is suitable for all types of property and provides a much more detailed assessment of both construction and condition.

A Building Survey Report will include extensive technical information relating to a property and will consider those defects and problems which are likely to affect both market value and the future maintenance of the property.
A building survey report would not normally include a valuation, unless agreed otherwise.
Note: Our survey reports and inspections carry out Rule of Engagements
