RICS Homebuyer Service

The RICS Condition Report – survey level one

Choose this report if you’re buying or selling a conventional house, flat or bungalow built from common building materials and in reasonable condition. It focuses purely on the condition of the property by setting out the following:

  • clear ‘traffic light’ ratings of the condition of different parts of the building, services, garage and outbuildings, showing problems that may require varying degrees of attention
  • a summary of the risks to the condition of the building
  • advice on replacement parts guarantees, planning and control matters for your legal advisers. An RICS Condition Report is straightforward and does not include a valuation, but your surveyor may be able to provide this as a separate extra service

The RICS HomeBuyer Report (Survey) – survey level two

Choose this report if you need more extensive information whilst buying or selling a conventional house, flat or bungalow, built from common building materials and in reasonable condition. It costs more than the Condition Report but includes:

  • all of the features in the Condition Report
  • a list of problems that the surveyor considers may affect 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 completing your purchase
  • information on location, local environment and the recorded energy efficiency (where available)

The RICS HomeBuyer Report (Survey & Valuation) – survey level two

As the RICS HomeBuyer Report (Survey) above but includes:

  • the surveyor’s professional opinion on the ‘market value’ of the property
  • an insurance reinstatement figure for the property
  • a list of problems that the surveyor considers may affect the value of the property
