I always recommend to clients that they commission a full structural survey of the property they are thinking of buying, it helps to ensure they sleep well having bought it! Some surveyors are, to be honest, dull and seem to struggle at a human level. What most people want is someone who can confirm what the state of the property is, report in layman’s terms but who will flag up anything that really matters.
I’ve worked with lots. These are the firms and individuals I use regularly and am happy to recommend.
