Home Buying Surveys

A Home Condition Report contains information about the physical condition of a property, which sellers, buyers and lenders will be able to rely on legally as an accurate report.
It can let the seller and buyer be aware of any works or repairs that are needed to the property.
The report

• must be carried out by a certified Home Inspector

• must be written in plain English and not include technical jargon

• gives you comprehensive information on work or repairs needed to the property, reducing the chance of nasty surprises later on.

Benefits of a Home Condition Report

Sellers
You have an early opportunity to carry out repair work on the property or get quotes before marketing your property. By giving buyers a clearer idea of your property, it reduces the risk of a buyer pulling out later in the process due to an unforeseen problem and gives your property an additional selling point.

Buyers
If the seller has included a Home Condition Report, you can use it at the begining of the home-buying process to reduce the risk of being faced with unexpected repair bills and other surprises when you buy the property.
Buyers and their mortgage lenders have a legal right to rely on the report, so you can give the report to lenders when they make their valuation. This means they may not have to repeat a detailed site inspection at your cost.
