Property Purchase Surveys
Property Purchase Surveys and valuations go one step further than a standard condition report, advising on value and assessing the condition of a property internally and externally on behalf of the prospective purchaser. Areas inspected are: external structural elements; internal structural elements; general observations of electricity, gas and water; garage and outbuilding.
Building Surveys provide an in-depth, room-by-room analysis of the condition of a building, but do not include advice on valuation. This survey will generally include: structure, fabrics, finishes and grounds of the property; proposed development/ alternation and drawings for planning building regulation applications.
Schedules of Condition
Schedules of Condition record the condition of the building at that particular time and may be supported by photographs, sketches and drawings. They are usually prepared at the beginning of a lease or to a neighbouring property where work to a party wall is proposed. A Schedule of Dilapidation identifies wants of repair, normally at the end of a lease of following these works.
