Extent of inspection

Accessible timbers will be inspected for woodboring insect attack. Roof timbers will be inspected if safe access is available. This means a suitable ladder or steps and a large enough loft access trap that can be opened without damaging the surrounding decorations. Floor timbers will be inspected where accessible. This means that fitted carpets will not be lifted and furniture will not be moved, by us. Floorboards will not be lifted, unless they are loose. Staircase timbers will be inspected, except that again carpets will not be lifted and soffits to the underside often prevent inspection of those timbers. Any visual evidence of timber decay will be reported on. External joinery will not normally be inspected. Accessible surfaces of internal joinery will be visually inspected. Internal and external observations will be taken, and comments on general building defects likely to affect internal timbers will be included where appropriate, in the report, if submitted.
