Be Reassured about Property Reports and Valuations in Basildon

Buying or selling a house is one of the most stressful things that we do in our lives. To be able to do it, we need reassurance that we are making the right decisions for the right reasons. ‘Caveat Emptor’ (let the buyer beware!) rings in our ears as we are confronted by the jargon of HBR’s, PVR’s and BSR’s -what they are and what they are used for. Here at My Conveyancing Specialist, we make sure you start your move the right way in Basildon and any surrounding areas.

RICS Condition Report (Level 1)

Choose this type of Survey if you are buying or selling a standard house, flat, or bungalow made of common building materials and in good condition.

The RICS Home Survey – Level 1 service comprises the following:

• a physical inspection of the property and an inspection report.

The RICS Home Survey – Level 1 service provided by our inspectors seeks to:

• Describe the part or piece in sufficient detail for it to be accurately identified.

• communicate the surveyor’s expert assessment of each part or element in a clear and straightforward manner.

• indicate the condition of the section or element that validates the surveyor’s evaluation and assists you in gaining an objective perspective of the property’s state.

Energy Performance Certificate

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a document that provides information on the energy efficiency of a property. The certificate is prepared by a qualified assessor and must be included as part of the RICS Home Survey – Level 1 service.

The certificate will provide an energy efficiency rating for the property, based on how energy-efficient the property is in relation to other similar properties. The rating will be given on a scale of A (very efficient) to G (inefficient).

The certificate will also contain information on the property’s carbon dioxide emissions and recommendations on how to improve the energy efficiency of the property.

If you are selling or letting your property, you will need to provide an Energy Performance Certificate to the potential buyer or tenant. It is also a legal requirement to display the certificate in the property when it is on the market.

RICS Homebuyers Survey (Level 2)

The most typical sort of survey is a Level 2 HomeBuyer Report. It may be utilized on a wide range of property types, although it is best suited to properties built within the last 50 years.

The RICS Home Survey – Level 2 (survey alone) service includes

•  a physical inspection of the property and an inspection-based report.

The surveyor who provides the RICS Home Survey – Level 2 (survey only) service aim to provide you with professional advice so that you can:

The RICS Home Survey – Level 3 service comprises the following:

• a detailed inspection of the property and a complete report based on the inspection.

• assist you in making a reasoned and informed decision when acquiring the home, or when planning repairs, upkeep, or renovating the property.
