The procedure is non-intrusive.

If you are concerned about your property has subsidence, or any other defects then you MUST get a HomeBuyers Survey as the costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds.

Do I get aerial photos of my property as part of my survey?

Your surveyor will take photographs of your roof as part of your survey. These may form part of a Building Survey or may be referred to in a Homebuyer Report.

These photos are not aerial photos; they are normally taken from ground level and possibly from using a device which enables photos to be taken from an upper window.

The surveyor takes photos as part of their checking of the property for defects; they will inspect all accessible areas in order to do this, including the drains and the loft (if this is present and they can get to it).
