Building surveys can take may forms. Sometimes a single defect requires investigation and at other times, the whole building needs surveying.

Buying or Leasing Property

Prior to buying or leasing a property, it is strongly recommended that you should commission a survey to establish its condition and any defects (current or anticipated). If you are taking a lease, or letting a property, a Schedule of Condition should be prepared.

If however, you are buying or already own a property, there are various types of survey that could be carried out:

1.Individual defect investigation

If you have a concern about a defect in your building, you may want a Building Surveyor to take a look for you. Examples of such defects are damp and mould, cracking, drainage problems, roof leaks and poor workmanship.

We will conduct an independent survey and produce an unbiased, professional report (written or verbal) according to your needs.

2.Full Building Surveys

This type of survey is the most thorough and comprehensive of all surveys. It is suitable for any type of property in any condition. Since the Building Survey is not restricted to a standard format.

The report will provide a detailed assessment of the nature and condition of the property, together with technical advice about any identified problems and recommended remedial works.


Additional specialist reports can be obtained and incorporated into the report. Castlemore can arrange all such additional inspections on your behalf and then incorporate these into the main survey report.

If you consider that you may need any such additional services, please feel free to discuss this. We would be pleased to offer advice as the most appropriate route for your particular property.

3.Mortgage Valuation

The survey is undertaken on behalf of the mortgage lender. It provides a brief statement on the condition of the property and identifies any urgent repairs that have a bearing on the property's value. The surveyor will also recommend an insurance figure and provide a valuation of the property.

Castlemore does not undertake this type of survey. It is a limited inspection to ascertain if the property is worth what you are borrowing. It also only identifies any issues which will affect your mortgage or the mortgage lender's risk

4.Homebuyer's Survey and Valuation

This type of survey is suitable for conventional properties with no apparent serious defects. It is prepared in a standard report format but will list any urgent or significant matters. The report does not include detailed advice and does not provide for specialist investigations. However, it does include a valuation of the property.

Castlemore are unable to offer this service, as we are not insured to provide valuations of property. However, please contact us and we can provide you with a quote from an associate company.
