This was an upper ground floor flat is within a four storey detached purpose built block of flats built around 1950.

The Building Survey aims to:

• Help you make a reasoned and informed decision when purchasing the property, or when planning repairs, maintenance or upgrading the property;
• Provide detailed advice on condition;
• Describe the identifiable risk of potential or hidden defects;
• Where practicable and agreed, provide an estimate of costs for identified repairs; and
