How much is a Building Survey on a second-hand property in Ireland?

Updated: Dec 1, 2023

A Building Survey anywhere in Ireland is €599 for all apartments, €699 for houses up to 175m2 and €799 for larger houses from 176m2 to 300m2.

This Building Survey is based on the SCSI Type 2 standard and is the most common survey type for people purchasing second-hand properties.

The survey will give you a comprehensive overview of the condition of the property so that you can make an informed decision on whether or not to proceed with the purchase and lets you buy with confidence.

Apart from the structural condition of the property, the surveyor will also comment on the general condition throughout the property from floors to ceilings, walls to doors and offer advice for your solicitor with planning requirements or boundary issues.

Although these surveys should be conducted to the SCSI Type 2 standard, Get House Survey reports go far beyond that level of detail and our report format is designed to make it easy for you, your solicitor, and your lender to find exactly what they are looking for.

Here is a sample of a recent survey we conducted on a 3-bed in Dublin to give you an idea of what is included:
