Building Surveys in Buckinghamshire

A building survey (or 'full structural survey' as it was once known) is the ideal survey if the property is very old, or if it has been significantly neglected over a number of years. The property may have a number of defects that require a more in depth diagnosis, which will all be covered within the building survey itself. 

A relatively small spend on a survey could save you thousands

This is a very extensive survey so at Donald Leslie & Co we aim to make it as straight forward and easy to read as possible.

We can spend up to a day on site to ensure every last extremity is covered.

What's covered in the survey?

Here are just a few points covered in the building survey:
A detailed visual inspection of the structural integrity of the property.
A schedule of costs so you can see the likely expenditure needed.
In the case of a very old property, a look at whether the appropriate building materials have been used.
Damp Test recordings and results.

Why have a survey?

This was video taken for a client , (first time buyers), needless to say they were very upset when they were shown this video but very relieved when they had time to re consider. The bank valuation was approved and did not highlight any concerns.
Client Nadine moved to an older property in Gerrards Cross she instructed us to carry out a Building survey.
"Professional, knowledgable and backed up by years of experience and excellent customer service. I went for a Building Survey report through them because I was buying an older property and needed to know what I was potentially letting myself in for!

 In return I received in-depth analysis of the property's condition and practical/useful advice on the defects, and what my repairs and maintenance options were. This is money very well spent and often people skimp on this outlay, which is a false economy. Also liked the fact that Donald was 'real' and he was happy to talk in person after the survey report had been issued to go through in detail any points that I was most concerned about.

 First class.”
