Structural Inspections

Buying a property can be the biggest investment in both emotional and monetary terms; often, more so than anything else in our life.

At Thomas Consulting, we understand this, and work with all parties involved to expedite the inspection and report to allay your concerns and provide a thorough report regarding your new home.


Our structural inspection reports can provide you with reassurance regarding the structural integrity of your new home, with defects identified with recommendations for remedial works. The inspection is undertaken by a Chartered Engineer (CEng) either with the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) or Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE).

Your valuation report may have already indicated areas of concern that may need further examination; our structural inspection report can help address the queries the valuation report raises.

We will undertake a visual inspection of those items that are typically associated with the structural fabric of the property, such as floors, walls, roof and where exposed foundations. Where external factors such as, drains, trees and ground conditions may affect foundations, these will also be noted in the report with further recommendations for remedial works or investigation.
