Latest News Summer 2011

Work load continues to improve with a wide range of projects and building types.

At present, we are working on a number of historic and listed buildings for a variety of clients providing inspection, Planning/Building Regulations and employers agent services.

After an influx of residential surveys in April/May these seem to have slowed in recent weeks and agents report a slowdown in enquiries and an increase in price reductions.

The residential property market continues to struggle in this area with some sectors being better than others, although the level of survey enquiries and surveys undertaken has improved by comparison with the previous 12 months, but the quiet summer period beckons with a usually busy time of year for sales being quiet.

Condition Reports

The RICS have launched the Condition Report service which is now live. We are able to offer Condition Reports mainly as an alternative to the HomeBuyers Survey where perhaps a reinstatement figure, and more importantly a valuation is not required.

The fundamentals and presentation of the report are largely similar, although in some aspects the condition report is slightly less detailed than a HomeBuyers survey.

We offer a range of inspection projects and would be happy to discuss any particular requirements you have for property purchase or for ongoing maintenance.
