There are several variations on name of this kind of survey. These include:
House Purchase Survey
Major Defects Report
These are the most common kind of report carried out on properties typically built from 1900 onwards. These are a survey inspection of all the easily accessible parts of the property which will include such areas as the roofspace. For most more modern properties, this will be the most typical kind of home survey which will put a property purchasers’ mind at ease with a survey inspection and report being provided, often with a list of property defects and an indication of how important these would be to a typical property purchaser.
