RICS Condition Survey
This RICS report is a report on the condition of the property including the structure, services, garage and outbuildings, the risks to the property and issues for legal advisers (e.g., regulations and guarantees). No property valuation is included.
It is suitable for reporting on more conventional properties in reasonable condition and built from common building materials.
RICS HomeBuyer Report
This RICS report covers the same items as the RICS Condition Report but also provides a property valuation, an insurance reinstatement figure, a list of problems that may affect the value of the property, advice on repairs and ongoing maintenance and issues that need further investigation.
It is suitable for helping the purchaser make an informed decision about buying the property – about the price being paid, any repairs of replacements required and what further advice should be taken.
RICS Building Survey
This RICS report is the most thorough of the suite of RICS Home Surveys. It provides detailed advice on the condition of the property and describes identifiable risks and recommends any further actions or advice that should be taken. If required, an estimate of repairs can be provided.
It is particularly suitable for large, older or run-down properties or a property that is unusual or altered or if the client is planning major works
What happens once I have accepted your fee quote?
You will be contacted by a member of the administrative team at Jenner Jones Chartered Surveyors who will take further information from you (your current address, a contact telephone number and the estate agent’s details) so that your instruction can be formally confirmed and an invoice issued to you.
How is the survey arranged?
Jenner Jones Chartered Surveyors will contact the estate agent to make arrangements for access to inspect the property. Once this is arranged, a formal confirmation of instruction and a fee invoice will be sent to you.
When will the home survey be carried out?
Normally, the house survey will be carried out within five working days of receiving your instruction but this does depend on when access is possible.
How long do I have to wait for the report?
The report will be issued within eight working days of the inspection, normally a lot sooner.
