A decent measured building surveyor can offer advice on what they think your measured building survey will include

Measured Survey Specification

When hiring a measured building survey company to produce drawings of your property it is important they are aware of exactly what is required. This can include elements such as extent and location of sections, quantity of elevations, floors to survey etc. Knowing exact specifications for surveying is important as you or your architect may be particularly interested in a certain section of a building, or your architect may only want a certain elevation rather than them all etc.

Knowing exact specifications for surveying is important as you or your architect may be particularly interested in a certain section of a building, or your architect may only want a certain elevation rather than them all etc. Providing your surveyors with a specification is important as it outlines exactly what you want. This means if your surveyor doesn’t pick up the required details they are accountable from the start. It can also help save costs as certain elements of your property may not need surveying.
