Property Condition Report
A brief report on the overall condition of a property in as far as it affects value, with no advice on repairs or other associated matters. Based on a short inspection of approximately an hour. No valuation or buildings insurance calculation is provided.
RICS Homebuyer Survey
The RICS Homebuyer Survey is the most popular type of report and is a general assessment of the overall condition of a property, commenting on items that affect value but not minor repairs. It is based on an inspection of approximately 1½ to 2 hours, uses Condition Ratings to assess the overall condition and provides both a valuation and buildings insurance calculation.
A Building Survey is a comprehensive report on the quality and condition of a property - ideal for older properties, those in poor condition, or for those wanting a comprehensive report on condition. It is based on a detailed examination of between 2 to 4 hours and provides an in-depth analysis on the condition of a property, reports on major, general and minor defects and recommends the extent and timings of repairs required and incorporates photographs.
Principal Elements Report
A Principle Elements report is similar in detail to a building survey but is limited to the main structural elements of the property, which does not include the fittings or services and does not include a valuation.
Specific Defect Report
This is a detailed report similar to the above but strictly limited to a single aspect of the property.
The cost of each survey is dependent on property size and value, and start from just £295 +VAT. We also offer a 10% discount to Dacres vendors on surveys on their new property, so be sure to contact us if you are selling with Dacres.
