What is a HomeBuyer Survey?
The RICS HomeBuyer Report (Survey) gives you clear ‘traffic light’ ratings showing the condition of the property, advice for your legal advisors and details of urgent defects. The report also recommends necessary repairs and ongoing maintenance advice. It includes a detailed visual examination of the property that are available for inspection.
The RICS HomeBuyer Report (Survey & Valuation) also includes a separate market valuation and insurance reinstatement costs.
Who needs HomeBuyer Surveys?
A HomeBuyer Survey is ideal for more conventional residential property built within the past 100 years. It provides extensive information and is ideal if you are buying or selling a house, flat or bungalow, built from common building materials and in reasonable condition.
For properties over 100 years old, or those that have undergone a major extension/alteration, we recommend a Building Survey.
