What’s in a home survey

What will a Home Condition Survey tell me?

Your Home Condition Survey will tell you all you need to know about the property in an easily understood way. Armed with an HCS, buyers can often negotiate the price of the property down by 5-10 times the cost of the survey.


It will cover:

  • Building condition and defects
  • structural movement
  • damp, rot, and woodworm
  • heating, drains, and electrical services
  • alterations and additions
  • rebuilding cost - for buildings’ insurance.

Each element will be rated with a simple 1, 2, 3 condition score and presented in a jargon-free, easy to understand report. The report will also include information on any defects that are discovered and how to go about getting them fixed.

It usually takes about a week from commissioning to the report’s delivery. It will be between 30 and 40 pages long, with plenty of photos so that you can easily see what the surveyor is talking about.

Buying a property can be very stressful. Decisions involving huge amounts of money, technical information, legal wrangling, and deadlines all demand your attention and most of them are outside your control or experience. The feeling of uncertainty can be overwhelming. We recognise that feeling!

Investing in a Home Condition Survey will reduce at least part of the anxiety. Be confident that your new home is not a nightmare in disguise because a trained and audited professional has thoroughly examined every nook and cranny, followed up every suspect symptom, and assessed the work you will need to do to keep the place in good condition.

"A good report and money well spent. I will definitely be referring the surveyor's details onto friends, family and relatives who may be purchasing a property soon."
