At Countywide Properties we offer comprehensive RICS RED BOOK Valuations
Surveys are a vital tool in establishing the structural state and condition of a property. They provide essential information to owners, investors and property stakeholders on which investment; risk; pricing and development decisions are made.
The majority of surveys are undertaken before a property is purchased or sold. Surveys should be undertaken prior to contract negotiations, as any defects or issues can be identified, allowing potential investors and stakeholders to make informed decisions. Often a survey is used in purchase negotiations, as buyers use this knowledge to account for the cost of rectifying defects within their offer.
Whether you are considering purchasing your first property or are purchasing a property for a second time as your family expands or as you change jobs, if you are moving to a new area or are retiring or downsizing we have a form of survey reporting suitable for all types of property and all pockets.
Professional Standards (the ‘Red Book’) contains mandatory rules, best practice guidance and related commentary for all members undertaking asset valuations. The Red Book is issued by RICS as part of our commitment to promote and support high standards in valuation delivery worldwide. The publication details mandatory practices for RICS members undertaking valuation services. The latest edition of the
Red Book came into effect on 6 January 2014.
