BUYING A PROPERTY, CAN YOU AFFORD TO TAKE THE RISK?

Buying a house is a difficult and very expensive process. Therefore it makes sense to appoint the most qualified building professional. In our practice we have over 200 years of experience between our surveyors.

Jon Charters-Reid has been in the industry for nearly twenty-five years. We know that there are companies out there offering surveys for a very low fee. It is a fact you will get what you pay for. You must remember that when you employ our company we are Chartered Building Surveyors, Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Registered valuers, Chartered Building Engineers, Chartered Builders and over half of our staff are ex-trades personnel. This in itself makes our surveys worthwhile.

One of the things that we boast about is that you can have free advice and can ask us some questions over the phone. If you were to employ a dentist or a surgeon you wouldn’t go for the cheapest, and you should not do the same when you are buying a house.’

Buying a new home or selling your own existing property can seem daunting – after all, they say it is one of the most stressful things we ever do!

But it can also be one of the most exciting times too!

This FREE guide from Charters-Reid aims to take the stress and hassle out of the process. By following this step-by-step guide with Jon Charters-Reid we hope you’ll find buying or selling a pleasure and very soon be relaxing in the new home of your dreams…

We have written a book on buying and selling a house and it can be purchased here from Amazon’ and you can put the Amazon link in, that’s what we need.

WHAT IS A SCHEDULE OF CONDITION?

A Schedule of Condition is a detailed and factual record of the condition of a property. The Schedule of Condition is usually prepared for contractual reasons to establish the condition of the property at a set date in time, usually the commencement of a lease agreement or in party wall agreements, this can be carried out on either residential or commercial premises.

A Schedule of Condition can be instructed by the following:

  • Landlord
  • Tenant
  • Employer
  • Contractor
  • Neighbour

Having a Schedule of Condition completed by an independent expert provides greater gravitas to the record of condition in the event any party raises a claim or negotiation.

There is a big difference between how a Schedule of Condition is carried out and used, and a Condition Survey. The Schedule of Condition is a record of the condition of a building with descriptive annotations and photographs, usually appended to a legal document, whereas a Condition Survey is prepared to identify the condition of the building and also what works are required.
