provides home buyers with a comprehensive building survey report that includes cost estimates for all defects which are identified during inspection of a property. Surveyors at home-approved®
are all members of RICS, have previous experience in building construction or costing repairs, and all cost estimates provided are impartial and independent of tradesmen.
full structural building survey involves a thorough visual inspection of a property. The use of specialist equipment, such as extension ladders and pole-mounted cameras, give access to parts of a property that could be easily overlooked. The property survey report is presented in a clear and accessible format, avoids jargon and is easy to understand. The survey report also includes photos and video stills of all identified defects and repairs required, to clearly illustrate problems. Where there are a number of defects and problems identified, repairs are colour coded according to importance, enabling the property buyer to plan and budget for future repair work to be carried out if they proceed with the house purchase.
service is responsive and efficient. The property buying process can be highly time sensitive, so home-approved®
supplies a written survey report within three working days of the building inspection.
AssocRICS Surveyor Matthew Brown, Director, home-approved®
says, "In ten years of working for major building insurance providers I surveyed over 8000 properties, providing specifications and costs for rectifying all sorts of building defects. Having seen the serious implications of properties left in poor condition or from repairs going unnoticed, or ignored, I realised there was real value in this aspect of my work.”
“The additional information supplied in a home-approved®
survey report gives prospective buyers the full facts about a property. They can then decide not to proceed with the purchase, or they can use the information to establish a stronger negotiating position, taking into account the property defects and associated cost implications.”
