Houses can be money pits and buying a house is a major investment – so the homebuyer really needs to be able to make an informed decision. This is where the Home Condition Survey (HCS) comes in.
The HCS is a clear, concise and jargon free report on the condition of a domestic property. The surveyor gives a cost effective service and will inspect and report on the property quickly, allowing the homebuyer to make a speedy and informed decision.
Delivered by specially trained and fully accredited residential property surveyors, the HCS gives the buyer a plain English, jargon-free report on the condition of the property using a simple 1,2,3 rating guide, so it is easy to understand any risks or unforeseen expenditure that could crop up.
Buying a house can be stressful and it is not always in the seller’s best interests to be fully open about its quirks and idiosyncrasies. The HCS tells the buyer about any aspects of the property that need urgent attention or which present serious faults, as well as any longer term repairs that a home owner might have to plan for.
The HCS can only be produced by fully qualified and accredited members of SAVA –an organisation which trains and accredits the work of surveyors. Homebuyers can be assured of a comprehensive report produced by a professional, trustworthy individual.
The aim of the HCS is to make the home survey process quicker, easier and more cost-effective for homebuyers – something that is now more important than ever.
Domestic EPCs – Energy Performance Certificates – from £35.00
An EPC can only be produced by either a Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA) or by a Home Inspector (HI) who must be approved by either a government approved Accreditation or Certification scheme. The DEA/HI will visit the property to assess the energy related features. These are then entered into a computer programme, which is a calculation model developed by the government, known as RDSAP ( Reduced Data Standard Assessment Procedure).
