Building Survey Checklist

Download this free building survey checklist to conduct a thorough assessment of a commercial property.

Building surveyors advise their clients about the design, construction, maintenance, and repair of buildings through the surveys that they conduct, and their recommendations often serve as an essential tool for selling commercial properties. By identifying problem points or areas that require repair, customers are able to resolve issues quickly and gain an advantage that can help move the sale of their building along swiftly.

What are the requirements of a building survey checklist?

A building survey checklist should gather detailed information of a commercial property such as the building’s address, height, usage, utilities, local and official names, landlord contact, and occupancy status.

What are the benefits of using a mobile building survey app?

Building survey reports consist of data recorded at the time of the physical, on-site survey, but details can often be forgotten or miscommunicated when using paper checklists. In addition to ensuring a complete and thorough inspection report, a mobile building survey app offers the following benefits:

  • Photos can be taken from within the app and attached to the checklists for more detailed and accurate reporting.
  • Checklists can be completely customized to suit the individual needs of your business or the common building types that you survey.
  • All data is stored in the cloud, so there’s no need to worry if your smartphone becomes lost or damaged.

Building surveyors can utilize a mobile app to keep detailed, cloud-based records of all the data they collect while conducting surveys. This makes report generation simple, and the data can be shared easily with customers and other interested parties for the purposes of making property repairs, documenting issues, or just conducting due diligence reporting.
