Jersey granite outhouse at La Haule, St Brelade, with deteriorated wood doors and windows in need of a 3rd-Party condition report for renovation.

What's a 3rd-party condition report?

These serve the need for independent witness and evidence gathering โ€” including imagery, documentation and expert opinion โ€” to report on the condition of a site or property; externally, internally, or for specific areas, fixtures and fittings.

This should be, as near as possible, an adequate substitute for site visits from those that need to see and understand the situation. It includes wide-angle context, and close-up details. Irrelevant personal data, such as number-plates, family-photos, etc, will be removed from images.

You may have engaged an architect who needs a materials and historic techniques expert opinion, it could be for evidence and opinion on an insurance matter, or you wish to undertake this necessary first-step, in evaluating your planning permission needs and options.

Service providers can request our help for an unbiased and professional assessment of a property's fixtures and fittings, or property owners can commission us directly.

The third-party condition report, provides an evaluation of the condition, and can include materials expert suggestions for suitable solutions, such as; repair, renovation, or replacement.
