The purpose of a Condition Survey Report is to ensure that everything about a property is in the condition it should be. A Condition Survey Report is presented with a traffic light coding system to highlight the severity of any problems or defects a property may have that need to be repaired. Green means that there is nothing to worry about, Orange indicates some cause for concern while Red means that serious repairs are urgently required.
- A Condition Survey Report is designed for ordinary, modern, new-build properties that are in a good state of repair and you want the reassurance of knowing that everything is as it should be.
- A Condition Survey Report is intended to accompany a mortgage valuation and not replace it.
- It will also present you with a summary of the property’s defects and any risks that the property may face.
- A Condition Survey Report does not include a property valuation or any advice (unless you request it at an additional cost).
WHAT DOES A CONDITION SURVEY REPORT INCLUDE?
This is a report that is prepared after a building inspection has been carried out. It establishes its maintenance condition and state of repair at that particular time.
During the survey, elements of the building are inspected and described in the report with concise details of the current condition of the premises in London. A Condition Survey Report will also inform you of any risks, serious defects and potential legal issues that could arise.
The Condition Survey Report does represent the most basic type of survey we perform at London Chartered Surveyors. Although it provides an outline of the property’s current condition and identifies any important issues, it doesn’t go into as much detail as the RICS Homebuyer Survey Report.
