A Schedule of Condition Report will ensure that a Surveyor visits the property adjoining the work, to prepare a through and impartial record of condition Report.
The Schedule of Condition Report will benchmark the condition of the neighbouring property, thereby ensuring that any defects, damage or issues attributed to the construction works are easily identifiable.
What Does a Schedule of Condition Surveyor Do?
The Surveyor’s role will be to comprehensively inspect all parts of the property both externally and internally that are in close proximity to the proposed construction works.
The Surveyor’s aim will be to record and detail the condition as thoroughly and clearly as possible, ensuring there is a robust record in place in advance of the construction works commencing.
The inspection will result in hundreds to thousands of high definition photographs being taken and a detailed report being compiled.
