RICS Home Surveys


The RICS Home Surveys suite is designed to help tackle problems and issues around residential surveys. The suite includes the RICS Building Survey, the RICS HomeBuyer Report and the RICS Condition Report

 

RICS Building Survey (Level 3)

The RICS Building Survey is recommended for large, older or run-down properties, buildings that are unusual or altered, and properties that will be subject to major works. It costs more because it gives detailed information about the structure and fabric of the property.

It includes a thorough inspection and detailed report on a wider range of issues, a description of visible defects and potential problems caused by hidden flaws, an outline of repair options and the likely consequences of inactivity, and advice for legal advisors and details of serious risks and dangerous conditions.

 

RICS HomeBuyer Report with or without Valuation (Level 2)

The HomeBuyer Report is recommended when more extensive information is needed on conventional houses, flats or bungalows built from common building materials and apparently in reasonable condition.

It costs more than the Condition Report, but includes a more extensive inspection, the surveyor’s professional opinion on the ‘market value’ of the property, an insurance reinstatement figure for the property, a list of problems the surveyor considers may affect the value of the property, advice on repairs and ongoing maintenance, issues that need to be investigated to prevent serious damage or dangerous conditions, legal issues that need to be addressed before conveyancing is completed, and information on location and local environment.

 

RICS Condition Report (Level 1)

The Condition Report is a ‘matter-of-fact’ assessment of the condition of a property, without any advice. Like the other RICS surveys, the Condition Report is based on a thorough visual inspection, but in this case, the scope is slightly reduced and information is presented in a minimalist style.

This report format is recommended for conventional houses, flats or bungalows built from common building materials and apparently in reasonable condition. It focuses purely on the condition of the property.
