Solicitor Summary Reports: how it works

Historically, communication between solicitors and surveyors has left little to be desired. As a solicitor, you might require your client to pass on a RICS Survey report to you before getting in touch with a surveyor to comb through the jargon.

But in the property industry, solicitors often depend on surveyors to be their eyes and ears when it comes to property matters. To do your job with your clients’ best interests in mind, you need a surveyor to highlight major matters, from structural alterations to required warranties, so that you can ensure all the paperwork is in place and regulations are complied with.

Partner with Novello, and we can produce an in-depth Solicitor Summary Report along-side the survey, giving you all the ammunition you need to do your job efficiently – and without risking missing any of the finer details.

With simplicity in mind, we’ll reach out to you when your client instructs us to survey a property. We can then find out whether you have any bespoke requirements while always ensuring smooth and clear communication.

What’s included in the Solicitor Summary Report?

Our Solicitor Summary Reports prevent you from having to search through every detail of the survey report just to find the information that’s relevant to you. Our reports are detailed yet concise, easy to understand yet actionable. In short, our Solicitor Summary Reports are broken down into four main categories:


All our reports state the date of a property’s inspection, any surveying limitations and the reasons for compiling the survey.


We highlight all urgent defects and safety risks to occupants in our reports so that you can take fast action for the sake of your clients.


We’ll summarise all the key details you need to know about your client’s property, including its age, size, outdoor areas, and number of rooms.


We’ll clearly detail all matters that require further investigation. These matters may include test certificates, building regulation approvals for works, and any guarantees that might be available.

Our Solicitor Summary Reports are becoming increasingly popular because they:


Our reports are designed to be clear and concise, enabling you to gain an in-depth understanding of key legal matters without having to spend hours combing through a full property survey.


By liaising directly with you concerning property matters rather than expecting the client to be the liaison, we open up new communication channels, making life more straightforward and efficient for everybody.


Improve communication between your client and surveyors while ensuring you never miss a detail, and you can assure your client that they’re in safe hands.


Why rely on outdated methods in a fast-evolving industry when we can help you modernise, save money and improve your overall offering?
