                              What is a Home Condition Report - (HCR)

A Home Condition Report is one of the optional documents that can be included in your Home Information Pack.

The report contains information regarding the physical condition of a property which buyers, sellers and lenders will be able to legally rely on as an accurate report. It is similar to a Homebuyer Survey and makes both the seller and the buyer aware of any works or repairs that may be needed to the property, prior to purchase or sale.

It is a legal requirement that the report is:

  • Carried out by a Certified Home Inspector
  • Must be written in plain English and use no technical jargon
  • Gives you comprehensive information on work or repairs that may be needed to the property, so reducing the likely hood of hidden surprises.
  • A Surveyor may only carry out a Home Condition Report if he has a Certified Home Inspection qualification.

Benefits of a Home Condition Report for both buyers and sellers:

  • Sellers have an early opportunity to carry out repair work on any defects prior to sale
  • By having an accurate report on the property there is less likely hood of buyers pulling out later in the sales process because of unforeseen problems and defects
  • If a seller has included a Home Condition Report the buyer reduces the risk of being faced with unexpected repair bills and any other potential surprises
  • Buyers and their mortgage lenders have a legal right to rely on the report, so can be given to a lender when they make their valuation and a detailed site inspection will not be required at your cost.

Please note by law a Home Condition Report must be carried out by a Certified Home Inspector
