13 March 2015


Basic CMYKFACT: More than 70% of homebuyers do not commission an independent survey on the property they purchase. The main reason for this is that 80% of mortgage borrowers think their lenders valuation is a survey – which of course it is not!

According to a WHICH? Report, consumers who have their property surveyed save an average £2,000 on the property price.

What is the Home Condition Survey?

The Home Condition Survey (HCS) has been developed exclusively with homebuyers and their conveyancers in mind and offers comprehensive benefits that other surveys simply do not offer.

The survey provides a clear and concise report allowing the homebuyer to make an informed decision about the property they are buying.

One news item has dominated the headlines over the last week – cyber-attacks and, in particular, the WannaCry ransomware. It is a well-known and well-documented fact that the legal industry, and conveyancing in particular, can be a vulnerable and high value target. This ranges from property hijacking – where fraudsters pose as legitimate owners of a property and sell it on without the real owner’s knowledge – to ‘Friday afternoon fraud’, with criminals contacting a busy law firm to ‘update’ their bank details to redirect funds.
