Building Surveys in Brecon

Our Chartered Surveyors operate under the regulation of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, taking pride in precision, possessing extensive experience, and boasting a proven track record. We concentrate on aiding clients with building surveys, home surveys, house purchase surveys, and homebuyer-style reports to facilitate property acquisition. Our surveyor conducts building surveys for various residential property types, catering to diverse needs. The practice, in particular, emphasises its dedication to supporting clients with comprehensive building surveys and homebuyer reports, optionally inclusive of valuations.


These were formerly known as

Structural Surveys

and are the most comprehensive type of non-invasive survey inspection of a house, home or other property you can have.  As a visitor to the property that is usually a building not owned by the client, the surveyor cannot cause damage to the property.  We can however examine a lot more than somebody viewing the property with an eye to purchasing the property.  Based on our training and experience in building construction, a full survey report will be provided to advise the property purchaser.

Any property that is older than 1900 or is a period and/or listed structure is recommended to have a full building survey.


There are several variations on name of this kind of survey.  These include:

Homebuyers Report

House Purchase Survey

Major Defects Report

These are the most common kind of report carried out on properties typically built after World War One.  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.


A number of other building surveys and property inspections can be carried out but involve confirmation with our Chartered surveyor.  These include:

Major Elements Surveys

Acquisition Advice Inspections

and several other variations. It is recommended that you call us to discuss the most appropriate type of property survey or inspection that suits you as a client.
