This is a survey report in a standard format designed to provide concise advice on the condition of the property and any repairs needed. The report is suitable for conventionally built housing dating from the Victorian era onward. It incorporates colour coded ‘condition ratings’ that give an instant indication of any defects and includes a valuation and rebuild cost for insurance purposes.
