A home is the single most expensive purchase most people ever make. As an owner you will benefit from expert advice on the condition of your premises whether you plan to live in it, rent it out or sell it.

In an RICS Home Survey an RICS member conducts an in-depth visual inspection of the property. Their report provides an expert account of the properties condition and highlights any problems in clear and easy to understand traffic light ratings.

Different homes require different types of survey. There are now three levels of service in the RICS Home Surveys suite:

Survey level one:

RICS Condition Report Shows the condition of the property offers guidance to legal advisors and highlights any urgent defects. Typically, the lowest priced of the surveys; it is aimed at conventional properties and newer homes.

Survey level two:

RICS HomeBuyer Report

Includes all the features of the RICS Condition Report, plus a market valuation and insurance rebuild costs. It also includes advice on defects that may affect the value of the property with repairs, and ongoing maintenance advice.

Survey level three:

RICS Building Survey

Essential for larger or older properties, or if you’re planning major works. The most comprehensive report provides you with an in-depth analysis of the property’s condition and includes advice on defects, repairs and maintenance options.
