We undertake:

Building Society/Bank Valuations  Limited inspection commissioned by your lender to assess the acceptability of a property for mortgage purposes.

Homebuyer Report  A licenced RICS product again providing "traffic light" ratings on urgent repairs and significant defects of a property, best suited to homes built after 1920.  This type of report includes a market valuation, a reinstatement cost for insurance purposes and advice regarding ongoing maintenance and any defects identified.  The Homebuyer Report will not highlight relatively minor defects or faults which do not materially affect the value of the property.

Building Survey An in depth and detailed report on the condition of the structure of a property, regardless of age or size.  The building survey is a bespoke type report providing advice on defects found, repairs and maintenance options.  This type of report is essential if the property is Listed or you are considering major works.

Energy Performance Certificates (EPC's) 

If you are planning to sell or let your property there is a legal requirement to have an Energy Performance Certificate.  An Energy Performance Certificate provides the environmental impact and energy performance ratings of the property.  The certificate will also give recommendations with regard to works which can be undertaken to improve the energy efficiency of the property.

Mundic Tests 

Professional testing for the decay of concrete undertaken in accordance with RICS Guidelines in order to establish if there is any "Mundic" or deleterious aggregates.  Please click here to link to our Mundic page.
