HOUSE CONDITION SURVEY
I am writing to ask for your help with a survey of the housing in Purbeck. The Council has a leqal responsibility to assess the condition of houses in the area to help it make decisions such as how to allocate financial assistance, and how to help improve home energy efficiency~ With this in mind, the Council is about to start a house condition survey. The survey is being carried out for the Council bv~ CPC Ltd, who specialise in this type of survey for Councils across the country~
Your home has been chosen, in a random sample, for inclusion in the survey and I am writing to ask if you would assist in this task by allowing a surveyor to carry out a survey when he or she calls at your home. The survey should take approximately 30 minutes. All information will be treated in the strictest confidence. Following the survey, the Council then recetves collated information, such as the percentage of houses that may qualify for financial assistance for repairs or insulation, and will not use data for any other purpose. Data is presented in a statistical form that does not identify individual property details.
Each surveyor carries a Council identity card, which they will show to you at the beginning of the survey. If you are in any doubt as to the identity of the callerr please do not let them into your home and call one of the telephone numbers listed be’ow. If you would like to arrange an appointment time with a surveyor this would be very helpful. The appointments can be made at a time to suit you including in the evenitigs and at weekends. To do this please contact the CPC Survey Office on Freephone 0800 783 1079 during office hours~ Alternatively you can wait until a surveyor calls on you at your home.
The answers to some frequently asked questions about house condition surveys are set out on the reverse of this letter which has been sent out from the offices of CPC who are carrying out the survey on behalf of the Council. It therefore bears a Portsmouth postmark. Your co-operation with this survey will be of great assistance~ It could help w secure h~creased funding from the Government for investment and assistance in Purbeck. I would like to take this opportunity to thank-you, on behalf of the Council, in anticipation of your help.
