Your lender will usually require a Mortgage Valuation once your offer on a property has been accepted. However, this type of appraisal must not be confused with a Home Condition Survey. The Mortgage Valuation only serves to confirm the value of the property to the lender, and there is no obligation to comment on any part of the property’s condition.

As a buyer, you may think you have the measure of a property from your viewings, but there is only so much that the inexperienced eye will be able to see. Once you take ownership of the building, any hidden defects become your responsibility, and many buyers spend thousands rectifying issues that could have been revealed by a professional Home Condition Survey.

A qualified surveyor will not only identify property defects but establish how serious they are, and the requirements for setting them right. With the help of a home survey, you can avoid potentially costly and stressful problems after the sale by using the Home Condition Survey findings to re-negotiate with the vendor before exchanging contracts.


Our Home Condition Survey consists of a full inspection of the property, covering every visible and accessible area. The surveyor’s findings will be listed in a comprehensive, easy-to-follow report, making any concerns clear and offering expert advice about how to deal with them. The entire process is designed to give our customers a thorough understanding of the property, and support them in their decision to proceed, re-negotiate or walk away from a purchase.

Our Home Condition Surveys are carried out by one of our experienced SAVA or BRE certified Residential Property Surveyors. Our team members undergo regular auditing to ensure our customers receive the highest service quality, every time. With local expertise and training to the latest standards, you can be confident when choosing an Alan Rance Surveyor.

Detached property on the Grove Estate, Tring. Built 1940.

This property was suffering from a lack of supporting lintels over the windows and expansion of the brickwork under the garage window as the brickwork was cracking and dropping. Another classic problem we identified was that the downlighters on the first floor had been fitted into the insulation in the loft space and not fitted with fire caps. This means that the insulation was either moved out of the way or could potentially be heated up by the light below, leaving the possibility that a fire could occur. We recommended that these should be fitted with fire caps.

The downpipes at the front of the building were allowing water to seep from the connectors up the wall, requiring either a clean-out of the downpipes or the soakaway. The tiles were broken on the side lean-to, which could not be seen from the ground. This is where a camera on a pole was invaluable to be able to detect the issue.
