The Property MOT® solution embraces the proven knowledge and services of Cornerstone Professional Services (UK) and brings together key elements designed to impart credible fact-based information pertaining to the health of a structure and ultimately, its occupants.
This unique surveying process is like a Health or Vehicle MOT in that it is a recognised planned or periodic assessment designed to provide a moisture related survey of a structure whereby, following a detailed exterior and interior assessment of the property with any advisories noted and acted upon, a ‘Certificate of Condition’ can be issued.

The Moisture MOT® solution embraces proven knowledge and understanding of moisture in buildings pertaining to the accurate determination of current atmospheric conditions.
Cornerstone recognise the majority of reported damp, condensation and mould issues relate significantly to the control of atmospheric moisture in a dwelling.
Property Analysis Model
The Property MOT® embraces industry recognised data/parameters to carry out an analysis of the property including Geographical location and UK Mean Temperature data from the Met Office in order to align its UK site to the expected construction behaviour.
A pre-set defined surveying process serves to acquire credible fact based data through all areas of a property with an interactive acknowledgment of existing and potential conditions.
Algorithms within the Property MOT® align to recognised British Standards including BS 5250:2002 Code of Practice for control of Condensation in Buildings. Annex B – Moisture generation and ventilation in occupied buildings.
A unique component of the Property MOT® is the ability to undertake accredited training with the D.A.M.P Alliance to secure a certified CMOTS qualification enabling interested surveyors to undertake the Property MOT® surveys. All data submitted by an accredited surveyor is analysed by the receiving SMART Portal with certificates and applicable advisories issued back to the surveyor for distribution to their clients.
