Property Inspection Reports
Both residential and commercial Inspection reports.
The property reports provided to the customer from The Company are designed to help highlight issues within the premises that are reasonable to believe may exist. The customer will not hold The Company accountable for any missed issues or safety hazards that are in unreachable places such as corners of roof spaces and inside cavity walls or joints that may be located in side and plastered over wall boxes. The Company will take all due care and consider all reasonable issues that may exist and will action these while carrying out the inspection. These reports are not to be used, viewed or considered as installation safety certificates, as they do not contain the high level of testing required to for fill those test certificates. The Property Inspection reports are designed to highlight safety concerns that the homeowner can resolve and may not have been aware of. If the Home owner requires an installation safety certificate they must request one and a different form and series of tests will be conducted to establish if the physical wiring installation and its electrical properties are to current regulatory requirements as of this year – this type of testing will be charged out at a different price to Property Inspection Reports.
