Independent Valuations

When buying a property in Mallorca as much care is necessary as back home. An independent valuation of your prospective purchase will not only reassure you that you are paying a fair price for your future home but can assist negotiations with the vendors. 

Thus in addition to their core investment and development services, including investment agency, development management and investment / development consultancy, Mallorca Chartered Surveyors offer clients an independent RICS property valuation service including:

Market Valuations -  A report, for various purposes setting out standard property value with supportive descriptive information. These reports make reference to the condition of the property but should not be confused with a more detailed property survey or RICS homebuyers' report.  

Development Funding valuation -  generally carried out on behalf of a bank / funding provider and valuing part or all of a proposed development scheme.
Such advice can be provided at the outset and earliest stages of any development - valuing off plan through to completion for individual unit purchasers or as part of a large scale redevelopment project.

Property Surveys

Chartered Surveyors in Mallorca, in partnership with Property Works Online, are also able to offer clients a full selection of property survey services including: 

Homebuyers' survey / report -  comprises an inspection of those parts of the property which are readily and safely accessible; in other words visible and readily available for examination from ground and upper floor levels without risk of causing damage to the property or injury to the surveyor.

It provides a concise report based upon the inspection and incorporates a valuation which forms part of the report. The surveyor's main objective is to give clients considering buying a particular property the professional advice which will assist them with that decision.

The Homebuyer service therefore provides a snapshot of the general condition of the property and particular features which affects its present value and may affect its future re-sale. The report focuses on what the surveyor judges to be urgent or significant matters. Significant matters are those which are taken into account in negotiating a purchase price.

Full Building Survey Report -  a detailed appraisal of the condition of the fabric of the building. It is not a Structural Engineers Report. The report will advise on the condition and state of repair of the visible parts of the property. It will describe the method of construction where visible, detail any defects which are apparent at the time of inspection and indicate the need for remedying such defects. Areas requiring future maintenance, repair or further inspection will also be highlighted. Proposed alterations should be discussed with the Surveyor prior to inspection.

Whilst the inspection and the report will be as comprehensive as possible, it will be subject to certain limitations, as indicated in the conditions of engagement. In particular, it should be noted that it is often not practical to inspect woodwork apart from that which is visible or to raise fitted carpets and fixed floorboards or gain access to areas which are covered, concealed or obstructed such as wall cavities, sealed roof and floor voids, or areas in ducts and behind paneling. Heavy furniture will not be moved. Roofs will only be inspected if safe and easy access can be obtained either by a 3 meter surveyors ladder off the ground or by direct access from within the property. Roof voids will not be inspected if the access is considered dangerous.

The report will incorporate general comments only on the garages and other outbuildings, grounds and boundaries. Where defects are revealed by the inspection, this will enable the prospective purchaser to carefully consider the suitability of the property for their needs and either revise their offer of withdraw before being legally committed to purchase.
