FROM A QUALIFIED RICS SURVEYOR

RICS HOMEBUYER
REPORT

A Level 2 Survey, formerly known as a Homebuyers Report, is undertaken by an RICS regulated surveyor. This entails a detailed visual inspection of the subject property. The report issued includes easy to understand ‘traffic light’ condition ratings to enable you to easily identify the most pressing areas of concern.  The surveyor will be delighted to address any specific concerns or observations you have prior to the inspection and provide specific advice.

It includes comments on the condition of the property, provides guidance to legal advisers, highlights any urgent defects, gives advice on defects that may affect the value of the property with repairs, and ongoing maintenance advice. A reinstatement build cost for building insurance purposes can be provided for a small fee if requested. Local environment issues are included such as radon gas, mining, subsoil conditions, flood risk and other issues such as the HS2 proposed railway.

A COMPREHENSIVE PROPERTY SURVEY

RICS BUILDING SURVEY

A valuation can be added for an additional small fee. The report includes detailed advice on defects, required repairs and maintenance considerations. The surveyor will be delighted to address any specific concerns or observations you have prior to the inspection and provide specific advice.

The Building Survey is the most comprehensive home survey, and is ideal for older properties constructed prior to 1900, properties considered to be in poor condition or if you’re planning any major works. This report includes all the elements of a Homebuyer Report together with a more in-depth analysis of the property’s condition, more comprehensive advice and an insurance rebuild cost.
