Sequel to the inefficiencies found in building maintenance, which has reduced the satisfaction level and resulted in many ugly incidents like building collapse and fast dilapidation, this work was conceived with the aim of evaluating the building survey as a tool for efficient building maintenance. The study adopted a survey design involving literature review, personal interviews and questionnaire survey. The collated data was analyzed in percentages and it was found that building survey is a very vital tool in building maintenance and it has been neglected in the study area. The study therefore recommend that building survey should be put into consideration before any maintenance work will be carried out, both in private and public buildings and there should be full funding and monitoring of the process to yield better results.
