9780080971322: Inspections and Reports on Dwellings: Assessing Age (Volume 4)

Identifying the age of a property is a fundamental step in understanding its form of construction and in being prepared to differentiate between the characteristic defects of that age of property and defects which are more unusual and may warrant particular care in investigation and assessment. This second edition of Inspections and Reports on Dwellings: Assessing Age updates the market context within which surveyors and valuers are now operating. In particular it has a new section on post-2000 properties, reflecting the profound impact of Government policies and environmental concerns on the modern urban landscape.

The book is divided into thirteen age bands with over seventy color photographs of dwellings for each period. A commentary on each age band outlines the social, environmental and technical influences on properties being built at the time, helping to explain why they look as they do. A broad range of dwellings is covered: large and small, private and public sector, old and new, and particular features which help to place a dwelling within one of the defined periods are highlighted in comments on the photographs.

This book is intended 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:

Inspections and Reports on Dwellings is a series of four books covering all the procedures for preparing reports on dwellings for buyers, lenders or sellers. It follows the professional guidelines developed in the light of court cases on negligence and Government requirements for the production of Home Condition Reports.

Assessing Age is first in the series. All reports on dwellings require an age assessment, which may be a determining factor in a loan application and is a necessary prerequisite for calculating reinstatement costs for fire insurance purposes. In addition defects are usually related to forms of construction commonly adopted at particular times and it is essential for the inspector to be able to relate these two factors.

The book is divided into 12 age bands with 72 colour photographs of dwellings for each period. Each age band has a commentary outlining the social, economic and technical circumstances of the time, which helps to explain why they look as they do. An overview of the photographs draws attention to the particular features which help to place a dwelling within one of the defined periods.

The broad range of dwellings covered, from the new to the old, the large to the small, with those built privately and those built by local authorities should provide the necessary assistance towards identifying the age of a dwelling in any part of the United Kingdom.

The book is intended for all those engaged in inspecting dwellings, whether experienced, newly qualified or studying for the appropriate qualifications to become members of professional institutions. It is also intended for practitioners who are preparing for accreditation to become one of the Home Inspectors who will be in great demand following the Government requirement for a Home Condition Report to be prepared before a dwelling is marketed.

The authors, Chartered Surveyors, have considerable practical experience in both the private and public sectors of inspecting and reporting on dwellings for all purposes. They have written extensively on the subject of building surveys and on the diagnosis of defects in dwellings and are joint authors of the successful EG Books publications The Repair and Maintenance of Houses, 2nd edition and Structural Surveys of Dwelling Houses, 3rd edition.
