House Purchase Report and Valuation

This service has been developed as an economy survey in a standard format comparable to the RICS Homebuyer report.  It comprises a reasonably detailed inspection of the property with a concise report based on the inspection, including a Valuation.

The report concentrates on:

  • Significant and/or urgent matters
  • Matters requiring further investigation
  • Features which affect value
  • General condition
  • Current Market Value
  • Insurance Valuation
  • Points for your Legal Adviser

The report is provided in an easy to follow layout.  The objective is to provide professional advice to assist you in making a reasoned and informed judgment on whether or not to proceed with the purchase.  The report will also help you decide if the property is reasonably priced, and will highlight any major drawbacks.

The report will give clear advice as to any decisions or actions that should be taken before contracts are exchanged.

It is important to remember that this is a standardised report and is not suitable for all properties.  We would recommend this report for properties falling within the following general parameters:

  • Built after 1880/1900
  • Up to 4 bedrooms (or 5 bedrooms if modern)
  • Of traditional construction
  • In reasonable condition
  • Not substantially altered or extended

For further advice or to discuss your needs please feel free to contact us.

For larger or older properties, or those with known defects, we would recommend a Building Survey.
