Our Defect Diagnosis Reports consider a specific problem (or a small number of problems) and advise on their cause and significance.

We will indicate whether we consider them to be historic and nothing to worry about or whether they are more recent and a potential concern.

Where there are extensive works required we will alos give an estimate as to the cost of completing any repairs although we would recommned obtaining at least two or three qoutations from suitable contracors.

Default Diagnosis Reports

The mortgage Valuation, Homebuyer Report or Building on your new home has identified a defect, or a small number of defects, for which you need to obtain additional advice. 

Alternatively you have lived in your house for some time but have recently noted signs of deterioration or damage.

Typical defects include:

  • Structural Movement or Cracking and Subsidence
  • Dampness, timber decay or condensation
  • Defective roof coverings or other external finishes
  • Bowed or overloaded roofs or other structural parts
  • Previous alterations including walls or chimneys that have been removed
  • Compliance of loft or other alterations with Building Regulations
  • And other matters

If necessary we also advise on any further investigations or remedial works that may be needed together with providing an estimate as to the probable cost of such repairs.
