Specific Defects Reports


Independent Building Surveyors

Our Independent Surveyors carry out Specific Defects Reports if you have a property problem, i.e. severe dampness, woodworm, dry rot, wet rot, condensation, cracking and/or movement, etc.

We also carry out structural surveys, known as residential building surveys, or commercial survey reports, together with property valuations (Note our valuations are not for bank lending but are to advise you how much we feel the property is really worth).

Contact us on free phone 0800 298 5424 for a friendly chat with a Building Surveyor.


What do the circles and ovals in our survey reports mean?

Dampness problems


The circles and ovals are a system that we use within our structural surveys and building surveys to highlight problem areas and to help explain the issues with the property.

Our Sketches

Black mould on walls


In addition to this if the photographs do not explain the problem well enough we also include numerous sketches that have been created especially for our surveys.



Examples of our surveys

We would also be glad to email you several examples of our tailor made Specific Defect Reports.  We also find that Specific Defect Reports can be used where there is one problem or issue that needs resolving between the landlord and tenant.
