A condition survey is a factual record of the condition of a property, normally prepared for legal or contractual reasons prior to purchase, lease or refurbishment of a residential or commercial building. A building survey will identify any obvious defects that would ordinarily be missed by the untrained eye. It provides a complete record of the condition of the property on a particular date that can be used as a benchmark against which its condition can be assessed in the future and any changes identified.
Understanding the condition of a property is fundamental for all property owners, prospective buyers and lessors in order to;
– Adequately maintain building condition
– Record the physical condition of a property at a point in time
– Maintain the property in accordance with a lease
– Inform future spending and investment
