Stock condition surveys of your home

What is a stock condition survey?

A stock condition survey is a visual inspection of the inside and outside of your home; it takes around 30 minutes. The surveyor collects information on the condition of your home, looking specifically at two areas:

  • Stock condition – the surveyor will assess the age and condition of major elements in your home such as the kitchen, bathroom, windows and doors
  • Energy survey – the surveyor will carry out an energy survey, collecting information on features which allow us to calculate how energy efficient your home is.

What happens during a stock condition survey?

This survey does not collect information on any outstanding repairs to your home. If you need a repair visit our report a repair page.

Why are we carrying out this survey?

The data gathered from the surveys will be used to plan for repairs and future investment programmes.   

Who will be carrying out the survey?

Michael Dyson Associates Limited has been appointed to undertake stock condition surveys and their surveyors will have an ID badge and letter of authority from the Hyde Group.

What happens after the survey?

Once Michael Dyson Associates have completed all their surveys for the year, they send all the information to us, along with a report on the overall condition of the stock. They do not provide us with written reports for each property so we would not be able to provide you with this.

Please note that we only replace components when it is too expensive to repair them. Whilst Michael Dyson Associates will provide us with recommended re-inspection dates for elements of your home, based on recommended lifecycles, these dates are used to support financial planning only and are not a confirmed year of re-inspection or replacement dates.

If you have a particular problem within your home, please visit our report a repair page.
