Building Surveys on apartments

Should I opt for a full structural survey prior to purchasing a substantially modified fifties mansion apartment in Ambleside?

Building Survey is the new name for the Structural Survey following its reclassification a while ago by RICS. When purchasing a modified apartment e.g. a neglected house, this is the best choice of home survey to commission.

Typically a couple of days after a thorough survey of the accessible parts of the apartment a written report (pdf and written copy) will be supplied to the buyer outlining comprehensive and relevant information in relation to the state of repair of the building.

There are certain limitations with any survey insofar as a RICS surveyor will not be able to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, open up the fabric of the of the Ambleside property e.g. lifting up fitted carpets.
