What Survey Do I Need for a Semi-detached Home?

Semi-detached houses are the most common property type in the UK, with around one-third of the population living in such homes and about 7 million properties built across the country. While they are usually more affordable than detached homes while still offering decent space, semis are often older properties with some dating back to the mid 19th century. A post-war boom in their popularity led to more construction in the 1940s and 50s, so many of these properties have been adapted and modified to suit modern living. For this reason, it’s important to get a comprehensive survey before buying a semi-detached home.
