Level 2. Home Buyers Survey

  • The Home Buyers Survey is an inspection of a property’s general condition and is a good value option when looking to buy a home. This is an intermediate level of service and is suitable for most conventionally built houses.
  • A RICS qualified surveyor will assess the condition of all parts of the property. The surveyor will assess a variety of areas such as cracks, damp, roof, etc.
  • The report is easy to understand and uses a traffic light system to high light where attention is needed. The report objectively describes the condition of the different elements and provides an assessment of the relative importance of the defects/problems. The report also gives advice about repairs and any ongoing maintenance issues.
  • The customer has the choice to include or exclude a Market Valuation figure within their report (additional costs apply).
  • This level of service is unlikely to suit those that have been extensively extended and altered, unique or older historic properties or properties in poor condition. Please see Level 3. Building Survey.
