Pre-Purchase Structural Survey

Avoid Buying A Money Pit

What is a Pre-Purchase Structural Survey?

A Pre-Purchase Structural Survey also known as a House Survey is a visual examination of the physical structure of a home, from the roof to the foundation.  It is just like a health check of the property.

Our Flagship Product

Buying a home is one of the biggest investments you will ever make. We understand this and that is why our Pre-Purchase Structural Surveys are our flagship product.

It is important to know the true condition of the property before you buy. Does the property need major repairs?

Our structural surveys will highlight potential issues with the home and could save you money in the long run.  After our inspection, you will have a much better understanding of the property.  This will help you with your decision to buy!
