  • For local authorities, housing association and other landlords to meet their ‘duty of care’ responsibilities to their tenants.
  • As a pre-purchase survey where a property changes hands
  • As an insurance report following a specific claim or incident.
  • As a detailed safety report for the householders peace of mind.
