Home Condition Report

Why Get A Building Survey or a Home Condition Survey?

In a report from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, it was shown that 80% of buyers do not arrange any kind of survey of a property before they commit to purchasing it. In some cases, this is due to mistakenly thinking that the mortgage valuation is a kind of condition report, while others simply misunderstand the value of having a professional assess the structure for defects. In either circumstance, without a survey, buyers risk taking ownership of a building which is riddled with hidden defects that are expensive and time-consuming to rectify.

Investing in a professional Building Survey will avoid unpleasant surprises further down the line, and will often give buyers a stronger position when negotiating with the property sellers. It’s not uncommon for our customers to negotiate significant sums off of the asking price, or have the seller fix a costly structural issue before signing contracts. We also have customers thanking us for the reassurance when a report comes back all clear, so the value of a Building Survey or Home Condition Survey should not be underestimated.

Our reports offer an easy to understand assessment of a property’s condition, raising any structural or legal concerns that you, the buyer, should be aware of prior to sale. We ensure our service is cost-effective, and report in the most efficient way to make sure you can make informed decisions and proceed with your purchase without undue delay.
