A building survey is an in-depth inspection of a property. It is a detailed description and report of the design, construction and condition of the property and includes the areas which are tough to reach. The survey report clearly states the defects or issues in a property and their obvious cause. The surveyor might even prepare a list of necessary repairs and let you know the estimated cost of undertaking the repair work. A building survey is also known as a full structural survey.
