RICS Stock Condition Surveys Webinar led by Senior Partner Colin Farrell

25 July 2023

In his RICS webinar, FFT Senior Partner Colin Farrell led an informative presentation on Stock Condition Surveys, sharing insights into how they work, why they’re so valuable to social landlords, and what is driving demand for them in 2023.

Colin went into detail on how survey data is collected and validated, what’s included in a typical survey, and what can go into the final reports, including highly valuable data such as priority areas of investment, and forecasts for years or even decades ahead, all of which can be used by social landlords to devise key strategies for the coming years.

Ahead of opening the floor for questions, Colin concluded his presentation with insights into practical issues around Stock Condition Surveys, including useful advice on minimising disruption to residents during inspections.

Feedback from the RICS community included:

​“Very comprehensive yet easily understood for a valuation surveyor who doesn’t have experience of these surveys but relevant to those carrying out asset valuations of social housing stock. Some really good practical points which mirror my experience in terms of arranging inspections”


​“Good, clear, and succinct presentation”
