WHAT IS A BUILDING SURVEY REPORT &
WHAT DOES IT INCLUDE?

What is a Property Survey?: Property and Building Survey Reports, are considered previous inspection of the property, made by Surveyors and Building Engineers. They serve to highlight specific weak areas of the property, building and structure. 

It is an in-depth unbiased, and transparent opinion, of how the property is preserved, in order to protect the future investment interest of the buyer. To sum up, Property and Building Survey Reports, generally summarizes the condition of the property.

Undoubtedly, it also details the structural soundness of the property, by generally detecting hidden defects, that the buyer is obliged to remedy.

When should I order a Survey?: Always before signing any deposit contract or document related with the property sale. 

Why is important to order a Survey?: Our structural and property survey reports go beyond a description of the condition of the building. Our combined expertise means that we also include thorough structural and technical assessments of your property. Knowing what you are buying can even save you money. Your report can be used to negotiate the price of the property and will help you decide whether to proceed with the purchase

A building survey, which used to be known as a structural survey, is a comprehensive inspection of all accessible elements of your property. The report also provides a detailed evaluation of the condition of your property and will suggest which parts of the property might be a problem. In addition, the report will point out areas of concern that could need further investigation. What the report doesn’t do, though, is provide a valuation of the property.

A building survey will cover basically the following issues:

  1. Internally: Dampness and condensation, ceilings, walls and floors, chimney and joinery, chimney fissures and cracks, windows, insulation, asbestos, electricity and water connections, water and electricity supplies meters, woods, termites, and other particular issues.
  2. Externally: Full inspection of the roof, chimneys, gutters, main walls, windows and doors, drainage and boundaries. Facades.
  3. Other: Garages, BBQ, wells, septic tanks, conservatories, tenure, services, building community issues, land legality, rustic lands…

 

Building Surveys are suitable for all properties, but they are particularly appropriate for:

  • Building that is on the Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest
  • Old Properties – recommended for properties over 50 years old
  • Buildings constructed in an unusual way, regardless of age
  • Buildings that you intend to renovate or change in a future
  • Buildings that have already been renovated or significantly altered
  • Properties you are thinking of renovating

David went to an apartment 3 times at very short notice to discuss the various issues that were coming up, and actually... went so far as to go to a "showdown" meeting with lawyers and the vendors of the flat where he managed to agree a constructive solution to the issues with them. I would thoroughly recommend David's service.read more

David proved to be extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and efficient. His services saved us from what would have been a... horrendous financial mistake buying a property which was represented to be great but which David revealed to be nothing but lies. Thank you David for giving us an excellent service and for charging reasonable affordable rates.read more

My wife and I had a wonderful experience relying on David's expertise as we were considering a property purchase in... Valencia. After going through the survey process with David, we recognized how it is an absolute MUST to commission a survey prior to purchasing any property. David was incredibly professional, technical, detail orientated and consultative in his approach to performing the survey. We had a detailed debrief with him after the inspection, where he was able to guide us on the important points to consider, and also give us confidence in our approach, especially as we live in England, without the ability to travel due to the Covid restrictions. Highly recommended.read more

David is amazing and I highly recommend his services! When we found an apartment we loved in Valencia he surveyed it... and helped us ensure it was in good condition. He communicated wonderfully and was very patient answering all my questions.After we closed the purchase David oversaw fixing the apartment up and handled everything while we were 4,000+ miles away. Fantastic communication and attention to detail. Everytime we hit a bump he was there to handle it and make sure everything kept moving.About 6 months later we decided to redo the entire kitchen and he oversaw everything again. It took about 6 weeks and he oversaw everything and did an amazing job. He has an amazing eye for design. I attached a few pictures to show the results.read more

David is very responsive and efficient and is knowledgable about building regulations. He was able to survey the... property independently, and give us a very detailed report, together with some useful advice. This gave us the confidence to go ahead with the purchase. David also gave us a number of future recommendations to improve the quality of the building. His English is excellent and we would highly recommend his services.read more

ABOUT ME

Hi, my name is David Esteve and I am a Spanish Surveyor and Building Engineer. I completed my four years degree at the Polytechnic University of Valencia and also completed my final Project degree at the University of Applied Sciences in Oldenburg.

With my bilingual skills, I am ready to work for English speakers: UK, United States, France, Germany & Sweden, are some of my clients. This is one of the reasons why I decided to create “Valencia Surveyor Studio”, bringing over 20 years of my experience, and able to assist many foreign investors, guaranteeing their expectations with my services, and showing them what they need to know in order to have a safe property in our Country.

 

Member of the Building / Property Surveyors and Building Engineers Association (CAATV) since 2003

HOUSE RENOVATION MANAGEMENT

Do you have to contract my services as a House Renovation Manager after you hire my services as a Survey Reporter?: NO. They are two completely different services from each other.

My Survey Report services, are totally independent, and they do not necessarily have to be linked to the House Renovation ones.

 

Since my beginnings as a Property Surveyor, there have been many Surveys Reports that I have carried out. During all this time, the truth is, that many of my clients asked me to help them by repairing and fixing all the damages that their house needed, before they moved in, and some homebuyers went forward by asking me to manage their House Renovation process. So this is why, I really considered a good idea by expanding my services and offering a House Renovation Project Management Service, when my clients really need them.

This is why “Valencia Surveyor” also offers as a Studio, the possibility of hiring a qualified and transparent House Renovation Project Managements Service. With more than ten years of experience offering these services, I have been able to specialize in what are the main needs and concerns of many of my clients coming from other countries. I am very glad to say at this stage, that they have finally been more than satisfied, with all those improvements that they were asking for, by creating all together a modern designer life experience.

Valencia Surveyor Studio, offers a wide range of samples of modern house renovations, some of them shown below. We can offer you the multiple choices, regarding the different materials, layouts, and different budgets.  We basically listen to our clients, providing them with different proposals, according their needs and pockets.

 

I hope you enjoy having a look at some of our projects below, as much as we did by creating them.
