WHAT IS A CONDITION SURVEY?

A Home Condition Survey from Alan Rance offers excellent value for money. This type of building survey covers all visible and accessible aspects of a property, with findings submitted to you in a clear, thorough report. This is the best way to uncover any potential faults or issues with a property, and enabling you to make an intelligent decision about how to proceed with the purchase.

All our Home Condition Surveys are carried out by experienced property surveyors with full Residential Property Surveys Association (MRPSA) or Surveyors and Valuers Accreditation Scheme (SAVA) accreditation.

WHY HAVE A SURVEY CARRIED OUT?

Most buyers will need a Mortgage Valuation via their lender to ensure that the property provides sufficient security for the loan. Please be aware that these surveys are purely for the benefit of the mortgage company; they’re not designed to provide you, the buyer, with any information about the condition of the property or alert you to issues that may need to be dealt with.

An independent Home Condition Survey, on the other hand, provides a detailed assessment of the condition of the property, so that you fully understand the structure you are buying. In a best-case scenario, few (if any) problems will be identified and you can buy the property with confidence. Should defects be uncovered, you may wish to use our findings to support a renegotiation of price or even reconsider your purchase altogether.

Some buyers mistakenly believe that there’s no need for a survey if the property is modern or a new-build. It’s important to remember that housebuilders are only human and mistakes can be made. A more recent build does not give any guarantees of quality, so you are still advised to commission one of our Modern Home Surveys
