A Defect Analysis Report sees a Surveyor visit your property to inspect and report upon a specific defect or issue.
Defects addressed through a Defect Analysis Report can be far and wide, over the years we’ve seen everything from damp, to bomb damage, to trespass!
The Report will ensure that you’ve got a comprehensive understanding of the matter, so that you can best address and resolve the issue.
What Does a Defect Analysis Report Surveyor Do?
The Surveyor’s role will be to comprehensively inspect the defect that exists within the property determining the cause of the problem.
Following on from the inspection they will then compile their findings into a report, giving objective and clear advice on how to rectify the issue.

Typical Defect Analysis Surveying Questions
Will the Defect Analysis Report identify the problem with the property?
Yes, in all normal circumstances our Surveyors are able to determine the cause of the issue that the property is suffering from.
Furthermore, they will go on to recommend the necessary steps that need to be taken in order to rectify and solve that problem.
How long does the Defect Analysis Report take?
This very much depends on the particular issue, the Surveyor’s inspection itself will likely take anywhere from 1 hour, up to 3 hours.
The completed Defect Analysis Report will usually be sent to the client within 2 to 3 days of the inspection taking place.
What should I do once I have the Defect Analysis Report take?
At this stage we’d advise instructing a contractor to address the defect in accordance with the Surveyor’s recommendations.
In all normal circumstances, this should rectify the issue and ultimately enable you to solve the problem to your property.
