This report is designed to give an opinion as to the general condition of the main components of a property. Comments are made on the condition of the main fabric including roof, walls, floors and wall and ceiling surfaces. The purpose of the survey is to report on evidence of a major defect which may result in costly repairs and to give guidance on how to proceed if such defects are apparent. Roof void and cellars are examined together with checks on dampness and structural integrity.
