WHY GET A STRUCTURAL SURVEY?
Many buyers believe that a mortgage lender’s valuation is a full building and structural survey, but this is most definitely not the case. A mortgage lender’s valuation is always for the lender’s benefit as opposed to the buyer/borrower, and assesses the suitability for the lender’s loan.
It is always worth seeking advice from an experienced surveyor, such as the team here at Westcolt, who can conduct a survey to establish the condition of the property in as much detail as is possible. This will help you to make an educated and informed decision as to whether you want to go ahead with the purchase, or renegotiate a price if you have to plan for repairs.
WESTCOLT SURVEYORS BUILDING SURVEYS
The Westcolt Surveyors Building Survey (or Structural Survey) is an in-depth inspection and assessment of all the internal and external parts of a property, as far as access is permitted. Once this inspection is complete, the client will be given a detailed report which includes images of any defects or areas of concern, as well as expert advice on how to proceed post-survey. All of our surveys can be custom-tailored to suit the client’s requirements, and is suitable for all types of residential and commercial property. Our Building Survey is independent of any lender.
If you require further advice and support, our highly experienced team is readily available for any more information you might need before committing to a decision on the property.

Party Wall Surveys
Party Wall Matters: The Party Wall etc Act 1996 came into force in 1997. It governs the relationship between a building owner and an adjoining owner and it regulates how certain building work is to be carried out on or near to the boundary between two or more properties. Typically the Act will apply in the following circumstances:
- Building on or near an existing boundary.
- Building new foundations at a depth lower than the foundations of the adjoining property.
- Carrying out various building operations on or to an existing party wall or structure.
We can check whether the correct Notices have been served and act as your appointed Surveyor to ensure that the procedures set out in the 1996 Act are complied with.
