It is understand that the scope of inspection· is limited for the purpose of valuation only. Due to integration of skill and knowledge,the condition survey and assessment of building is foreseeable to help the Valuers in preparing an accurate valuation for sub-sale houses. Questionnaire survey forms were distributed among Valuers from various public and private sectors to discover the professional perspective on this approach.
