RICS stands for Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and is the gold standard when it comes to quality assurance.
A RICS Home Survey is an assessment of a property’s condition. There are three levels of survey, 1, 2 & 3. Level 1 is the most basic survey, and Level 3 is the most comprehensive. RICS Home Surveys are now undertaken in accordance with the new RICS Survey Standard.
We offer two types of RICS Home Survey:
RICS Home Survey (Level 2) – Previously the HomeBuyer Report
RICS Home Survey (Level 3) – Previously the Building/Structural Survey
You can find guidance on choosing the right survey for your needs here.
This is the most popular of the two types of surveys that we offer and is suitable for conventional properties in reasonable condition. The report is written in a standard format set out by the RICS, providing ratings of each element of the property in a ‘traffic light’ system. It provides ratings on all permanent structures in the property, e.g. garages and conservatorys. It also highlights important problems that could affect the property’s value as well as giving on-going maintenance advice for the property.
This is a more comprehensive report, offering a detailed inspection of the inside and outside. This type of survey is recommended if the property is particularly old, made of unconventional material (like thatch or timber), or has had significant building work done to it. Similarly, if you intend to do building work to the property, a RICS Home Survey (Level 3) would be the best choice of survey.
We are regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors meaning we can be trusted to deliver the highest standards of service at the lowest possible price.
