House Purchase Survey & Report

House Purchase Survey & Report has been developed as an economy service 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.

Building Construction & Condition

Prior to our inspection we will undertake a brief desktop study for ‘due diligence’ to assess whether there are any potential risks at or close to the property which may affect our report and the advice we provide.

The inspection at the property includes all those readily accessible and visible parts of the dwelling both externally and internally including full access to the roof void where this is safe and possible.

The House Purchase Survey & 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.

We 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. 

Once you have recieved the report and considered the contents we are more than happy to answer any queries or questions you may have.  We will also be pleased to look over and comment on any issues that may arise from your legal investigations including any ‘Environmental Report’ or the Land Registry Title.

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.
