read more › The ISVA HomeSurvey Level 2 Report - This type of report is suitable for most conventionally built residential properties, constructed since around 1900. Properties that are unusual by virtue of their design or construction, or those that are particularly large, converted or extended and altered would require a more detailed report, such as a Building Survey Level 3. We will advise you further in this respect, during our preliminary discussion. The information is provided in a simple and straightforward layout, which is easy to read and understand.

read more › A Building Survey Level 3 is suitable for all types of buildings but is advised if the property is pre-1850, Listed, in need of extensive repairs or if it is constructed using non-traditional building methods and materials. The service consists of a detailed visual inspection of the building, its services and the grounds and is more extensive than a Home Survey Level 2. Concealed areas normally opened or used by the occupiers are inspected if it is safe to do so. Although the services are not tested, they are observed in normal operation.

read more › We are often asked to look at specific defects by current home owners or prospective buyers, rather than carry out a full comprehensive survey report on the whole property. This can prove cost effective especially if only one type of defect concerns you, but if there are a number of defects or possible shortcomings then either a Home Survey Level 2 or Building Survey Level 3 would prove more cost effective and appropriate. Defect analysis can be carried out by way of a Limited Defect inspection and report.

For many of us, property represents the biggest investment we will make in our lifetimes. Whatever the property type, a formal property valuation report will help you make an informed decision. A comprehensive report on value can help avoid inappropriate choices, whilst a combined valuation and survey can identify any potential problems or risks with your investment.

read more › We can provide a Help to Buy valuation if you are looking to purchase a greater share in the equity of your home ("staircase" up). If you are thinking of selling your property and have a "Help to Buy" loan that assisted with the deposit then, before you can sell, you will need to provide the administering organisation - probably Target (HCA) - with an accredited RICS Valuation. These organisations require a Valuation Report based on certain assumptions and in a certain format. This must be carried out by a RICS accredited Registered Valuer.

read more › A number of Housing Associations offered schemes which enabled the first time buyer to get on the property ladder by part buying and part renting. You may have purchased any percentage of the total value from 40% upwards. These schemes normally allow you to purchase more shares in the property up to 100% as and when your circumstances allow. This process is commonly referred to as "Staircasing". If the property value has risen sufficiently then a re-mortgage of the property will often be sufficient to allow more shares to be acquired.
