The ISVA House Purchase Survey report has been put together by the Independent  Surveyors and Valuers Association  (ISVA). The survey is broadly equivalent to a level two type survey such as the RICS HomeBuyer Survey and is a concise report, written in a straight forward format that is easy to read and understand.

At JMO Surveyors Ltd  the House Purchase Survey Report is our most popular type of report and we feel it offers the client better value for money  than the RICS HomeBuyers report. Although based on most of the same elements  the House Purchase Survey Report, reports the property in more detail than the Homebuyers report and aims to bridge the gap between a full Building Survey.

At JMO Surveyors a Chartered Surveyor is always available to speak to you the client to discuss needs, and the differences between the surveys and offer advice as to which survey is most suitable to you and your property.

Typically a House Purchase Survey Report includes details of:

  • The general condition of the property
  • Any major faults inaccessible parts of the building that may affect the value
  • Any urgent problems that need inspecting by a specialist before you sign a contract
  • Results of tests for damp in the walls
  • Damage to timbers – including woodworm or rot
  • The condition of any damp-proofing, insulation and drainage (though drains aren’t tested)
  • The estimated cost of rebuilding the property for insurance purposes
  • Technical information on the construction of the property and the materials used.
  • The location
  • Any Garages/Outbuildings

A House Purchase Survey Report is typically suitable for most properties with the exception of listed buildings, pre 1900 properties, properties in need of major renovation and also properties in which major alteration or adaptation is to take place.
