Why Is This Better Than its Forerunners?

These types of surveys are prepared in a much more collaborative way than previously, meaning that more resources are utilised. 

Each report is written with you in mind, and is written in non-technical language. Other advantages include:

  • All Home Condition Surveys are lodged with the accrediting body(SAVA), and 5% of all reports are independently audited.
  • Each Home Condition Survey is insured for professional negligence, removing the need to target the surveyor for recompense.
  • A reinstatement calculation is included with each of these reports,which is very useful for insurance purposes.
  • All reports carry photographs, which complement the text

More Detailed Building Surveys

For older buildings with more complex issues, a fuller building survey may be required. This is more detailed than a Home Condition Survey and in addition to including all of the information that would be normally provided in a Home Condition Survey,a more detailed description of the property and a more in-depth discussion of any defects and their possible causes would be offered.A quotation is available from our experts, and can be obtained by completing our enquiry form. The inspection itself takes around three hours, and a professional report,extending to more than 30 pages, is provided within five working days.
