A Timely Reminder
The time of year is no upon us when the clocks go backwards, and the amount of daylight during the evenings is therefore reduced.
Assessors are reminded to plan their forward diaries with this change in mind. Please remember it is a QA requirement that clear pictures of the external elevations are required for all properties, and these cannot be satisfactorily taken in the dark!
We understand that some householders can only arrange evening appointments. It is acceptable to go back the following morning and take the external shots or to take these earlier the same day when the light conditions allow. Please annotate your site notes to indicate if two visits have been made for this purpose.
