Home Condition Survey (HCS)
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.
is a clear and 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.
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 and BRE,
organisations which train 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.
