The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) recommends PCA Registered Surveyors to undertake, where required, further investigations in your Homebuyer report concerning:

  • Dampness/mould/condensation
  • Timber surveys/wet rot/dry rot/woodworm
  • Waterproofing/basement and cellar conversions
  • Wall ties and structural stabilisation
  • Ventilation within the habitable areas and in sub-floor voids
  • Property condition surveys
  • Specific defect surveys/reports
  • Building defect inspections/reports
  • CPR 35 compliant Expert Witness report

    Building condition survey

    Our Level 1 building condition survey is a complete unintrusive survey of the whole property, from the roof down to the basement. Not to be confused with a Homebuyer Level 3 survey, which informs you to instruct other surveys to undertake further investigations.

    Expert witness surveys and reports.
