From the Back Cover:

This standard work was first published in 1964 and has been in constant demand ever since. This Third Edition has now been completely revised, enlarged and illustrated with over 300 photographs (210 in full colour) and 88 line drawings integrated with the text.
The new Edition covers in depth all aspects of the work from settling the instructions, agreeing the terms and conditions, preparing for and inspecting the property with advice on how to deal with the various defects found, completing the survey and finally producing the report. No less than 4 complete sample survey reports are included to provide a comparison of different types of property and methods of presentation.

Full consideration is given to the guidance issued by the professional bodies and also to the ""consumer's"" viewpoint. Throughout, particular attention is focussed on the decisions of the Courts as to what should be provided to prospective purchasers and what the surveyor should do in particular circumstances. An entirely rewritten Chapter on the legal position of the surveyor has been included, which gives practical guidance to the surveyor not only on this important aspect but also on associated matters usch as the procedure to be adopted in the event of a claim.

The introduction of the RICS and ISVA House and Flat Buyers reprot forms has led to a number of qudstions being asked by practitioners and a new Chapter providing guidance on these shortened forms of report has been added.
