The preparation of a Building Survey Report provides an opportunity for the surveyor to fulfi l two useful functions: First the client can be advised in relation to the condition of the building, the further investigations which may be needed and the advisability of the purchase; secondly by encouraging timely and sensible repairs the nation’s building stock generally can be improved. So this is a useful service and a supply of well-trained surveyors using appropriate methodology is likely to be needed for the foreseeable future.
