Condition Surveys

Condition Surveys

An inspection of church buildings or other charity properties is recommended at least every five years to ensure the condition is not deteriorating and a pro-active repair programme is in place.

The survey normal includes:

  • Studying all documents provided;
  • Inspecting the exterior and interior of the property;
  • Recording the condition of the property in schedules and by photographs;
  • Making recommendations on works required over the next five years and estimated costs for these works;
  • Providing a sketch plan of the property to identify various parts

It does not include:

  • Full specifications and detailed prices for repair work required;
  • Detailed scaled plans of the property;
  • Structural survey or specialist survey work, such as electrical or appliance inspections;
  • Reporting on parts of the property that are inaccessible or covered or testing services;
  • Valuation for capital, investment, rental or reinstatement purposes.
