Why should I get a RICS Condition Report?
A condition report highlights any defects, urgent problems or potential dangers with a property. You can use this information to renegotiate the price of the property, or to give yourself peace of mind that the property has no immediate and obvious problems.
The condition report is based on a visual inspection of all the main elements of the property, and is a cost-effective option for more experienced home buyers or property investors who know exactly what to look for, and already understand the costs involved with property maintenance.
A number of standard-setting and consumer protection organisations (including Which and The Council of Mortgage Lenders) recommend that you get an independent home survey before you commit to buying any property.
What can I expect from your condition report service?
Call our team to ask any questions you have or send us your details to get a quote. We’ll send you a quote and a detailed description of what is included in your final condition report.
One of our chartered surveyors will then inspect the property and compile a RICS Condition Report. This report is in a standard format that was developed by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors. The report systematically covers the key elements of the building, flagging any problems.
Issues are rated using a traffic light system so that you can immediately see what issues are critical.
