SASS offer a wide range of building surveying services for residential and commercial clients.

A thorough and detailed examination of the structure & fabric to determine the condition of the building followed by a comprehensive report annotated with colour photographs. An invaluable document to assist home-owners and premises managers alike to prioritise and budget for essential repairs, and a realistic summary of the consequences of not addressing these repairs. In the majority of cases the works identified in the Building Survey may be used to negotiate the purchase price, or to identify necessary improvements before offering the property for sale.
