Caveat Emptor - buyer beware!
We recommend you always have an independent building survey as this will highlight any problems with the property. Caveat emptor means buyer beware and is why you need to have a building survey to find out if there are any problems within the property; the estate agent certainly will not advise you of any! Remember the independent building surveyor that you employ will be the only person working for you with your interests at heart.
Property refurbished by builders / property developers
Client met Surveyor at the property during the surveyThe client met the building surveyor at the property during the survey report. We recommend all our clients do this as it is great to meet you face to face to get a full understanding of exactly what the client requires from the survey and answer any questions they may have. We can also talk you through any issues we find with the property.

Our Good, Bad and Ugly Executive Summaries
Compare our surveys and compare our website
Within our building survey reports we have what we call our good, bad and ugly survey which is a building survey, which we have developed over many years, in fact several decades. We have listened to feedback from our clients and amended and altered our surveys to make them easy to read and describe issues clearly.
Please feel free to have a look at our www.1stAssociated.co.uk website to see for yourself the quality of our website, articles and our Building Survey reports. We pride ourselves on our professional standard and easy to read tailor made reports which we have been carrying out for many years on every age, type and style of property across the UK. The key factor we believe is our surveys are easy to understand in plain English but do not take our word for it call us on free phone 0800 298 5424 and ask for an example of one of our surveys to be emailed to you.
We use many photographs and sketches in our surveysThroughout our survey reports we use as many photographs and sketches as possible. Whilst the emphasis will always be on our written survey report, we enhance all surveys using photos and sketches using a powerful optical zoom camera, and which feedback from our clients agree that they like these included in their reports as it helps them to fully understand what we are saying in our survey reports.
Negotiating a retention / reduction in the purchase price based on what we found during our structural survey
Due to the amount of work still to be done on the property and various potential problems we found during our survey we recommended a retention of ten to twenty per cent is held against the builder/developer, which could be reduced from the purchase price of the house.
