Structural survey

A structural survey, or structural inspection, is a survey carried out by a structural engineer on the structural integrity of a property. You will need a survey if you have home improvements planned that change the structure of your building or if a homebuyer's report or building survey has highlighted a potential structural defect needing further investigation.


The following factsheet explains how a structural survey will assist you with understanding your property and how it can help with your home project.
