RICS Survey background
In this case the RICS homebuyer report stated;
“4.2 No evidence of significant damp ingress was noted to the property during our inspection.
To the rear elevation walls, injection holes at low level indicate that the property has had an injected Damp Proof Course added at some point in the past. You should make enquiries with the vendor to understand whether a long-term insurance backed guarantee is available for the work carried out and whether this is transferable between owners.
4.3 It would be prudent in any event to instruct a timber preservation company to inspect the property, raise a number of floorboards to inspect the sub floor areas and to provide a quotation for any remedial works required.”
Other report might say;
The entire property should be inspected by a Property Care Association registered specialist damp proof and wood preservation contractor as a precaution
