9780080971315: Inspections and Reports on Dwellings: Inspecting (Volume 1)

Inspections and Reports on Dwellings is a three-volume series that comprehensively explores the process of independent professional home assessment required for the purchase of residential property. This fully updated second edition of Inspecting retains a focus on the needs of the surveyor to recognise and interpret the significance of observations on site, whilst updating the market context within which surveyors and valuers are operating.

Inspecting includes a consideration of the important benchmarking by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) of three distinct survey service levels for independent surveyors and a review of the wider choice of survey options professional surveyors can now offer to potential clients in addition to the RICS Home Survey range. There is additional content on preparing for the inspection and on reporting, and there are expanded or completely new sections on a variety of subjects such as conservatories, renewable energy technologies, and innovative techniques and forms of construction. With over 500 colour illustrations and an enhanced structure, the new edition reflects the very latest approach to inspecting and reporting on services, risk and legal matters.

This book is essential reading for all those engaged in inspecting dwellings, whether experienced, newly qualified or studying for appropriate qualifications to become members of professional institutions.

From the Back Cover:

With the introduction of Home Information Packs and Home Condition Reports house buying is being revolutionised!

This second book in the series of four, following Inspections and Reports on Dwellings: Assessing Age, covers the entire field of inspecting dwellings, from ascertaining the clients' requirements, setting the instructions by way of agreeing the Conditions of Engagement for any one of the five types of report envisaged as being covered by the series, to the physical inspection itself. Desirable attributes in the surveyor are discussed - qualifications, necessary insurance cover, both in respect of liability for his work and his own person, together with his fees.

Court cases determining the scope and level of inspection are given full consideration and there is a concentration on ascertaining, particularly in regard to age, the materials and forms of construction that make up each part of a dwelling, the structure, finishes, services and surroundings and its condition, all by means of sight, sound, feel and smell.
