The resulting comprehensive
report will therefore set out all the results of the above, indicating, for
example, any signs of structural damage (including roof, external walls, facades, etc) or humidity problems that may be

permits that have been issued, and an indication as to the existence or non-existence

of habitability of the property. We can also check that no future building developments are already planned for the area and advise you on what is and is not allowed.
We will give you a clear comparison of the factual

we will inform you of the necessary steps to take to resolve any issues, or, in
the event of more serious problems, we will advise you not to proceed with the
purchase. It will generally be possible to resolve most issues by requesting retrospective
