A type of Survey more detailed and more expensive than a Homebuyers Survey because the surveyor is instructed to report not only on the value and general condition of the property such as windows, damp, etc. but also to investigate the structure.
It should be noted that surveyors are not qualified to say definitively if there is a structural problem, if he suspects this exists he should only recommend the building be inspected by a structural engineer. Structural surveys are popular with those buying period houses or buildings who not only want to see the value but also any immediate issues. The surveyor, however, should not speculate on the costs of any issues he reports. For more information see What a Property Survey Really Means.
