"If you are dealing with a large, older or rundown property, a building that is unusual or altered, or if you are planning major works, an RICS building survey (formerly called a structural survey) will give you a comprehensive structural report including defects, repair and maintenance options. A building survey costs more than the other RICS reports because it gives detailed information about the structure and fabric of the property."

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN ARCHITECT AND AN ARCHITECTURAL TECHNOLOGIST?
"Chartered Architectural Technologists and architects are qualified and competent to lead construction projects from design through to completion. The difference is within the specialisms that they will bring to a project. Chartered Architectural Technologists’ training and emphasis is the science and technology of architecture and architects’ training and emphasis is the design and philosophy of architecture. Whilst both disciplines have their own distinct training and specialism, there is considerable overlap between the two professions."
