Which walls does the surveyor report on?

RICS surveyors assess the accessible areas of a property of which the roof structure, ceilings, walls and partitions are included. These areas are normally divided up into internal and external sections within the final report.

Often a surveyor will comment on the building materials of the walls or partitions, noting any structural movement or signs of subsidence and on any signs of damp/rising damp.

Also, if requested before the inspection, a surveyor can often provide their professional opinion on works you may have planned for the property.
