What do you need to know about schedule of condition surveys?
A schedule of condition survey is a factual record of the condition of a property. They are usually done for legal or contractual reasons. The cost of having a survey done will vary depending on your location in the UK and the size of your property, though it should be simple and free to get a quote over the phone. On average, having this kind of survey done will cost something between £400 and £500. Remember that in the event you need to refer to the results of the survey to settle a dispute, it will carry much more weight if it was performed by a party not directly connected to a tenant or landlord.
It is important that you have your schedule of condition survey carried out by a fully qualified specialist. Look to see if any of your tradesman choices are a part of a national organisation such as the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors: this is solid evidence of expertise. The survey report should point out any issues that need to be resolved, including recommendations on how to proceed and for general maintenance. Your surveyor should have public liability insurance in the event that their survey fails to detect issues which end up costing you later.
