PRC Repairs

Non Traditional Houses that require a PRC Repair Certificate

As a result of a shortage of building materials after WW2, Banks and building society’s and mortgage lenders require evidence from suitably qualified professional such as our people to provide a PRC repair certificate to allow the sale to proceed.

PRC (Prefabricated reinforced concrete) houses fall more or less within the more general category of non-traditional housing. This means anything that is not a conventional brick/timber frame structure and includes steel frame, cast in-situ concrete and PRC construction. Steel frame and cast in-situ concrete are not too problematical.

However there are issues with them and a buyer would be well advised to have a specialist building survey when buying one, as PRC houses are more tricky and many lenders will not grant mortgages on them. This is why they tend to be a lot cheaper.

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.
