Property Condition Report

You will probably never see a Property Condition Report (PCR) as comprehensive as the one shown here. This PCR is the HUD Property Condition Report used by many Real Estate Brokers and Home Inspection Professionals. I decided to include this PCR so you can see how detailed a report is submitted by brokers and home inspection professionals. As a Property Preservation Contractor you will be dealing with property condition reports that are far less comprehensive – normally a small sub-set of this form.
