RICS Building Survey

This is the most comprehensive report available and would be suitable for you if you are dealing with listed buildings, older properties over 50 years old or buildings that you are planning major renovation works for. It thoroughly describes the condition of each element of the house, highlighting any defects the property may have, along with their cause and how urgent a repair would be.

Our surveyor would inspect all visible parts of your property. Remember, it is their legal responsibility to discover any major problems meaning they will actively search for them. They will take a look at the roofs, floors, windows and doors etc as well as looking into cupboards, outbuildings and cellars.

Some examples of defects highlighted may include the presence of hazardous materials such as asbestos, discovering renovations that have taken place without necessary planning permission, positive test results for damp in the walls or even noticing large trees in the vicinity of the property.


RICS Condition Report

This report is ideal if you are looking for a newer home. It typically is used for conventional houses, flats or bungalows that are in reasonable condition. Our surveyor would provide you with professional advice about the construction and condition of the property, defects that are needing immediate attention and any aspects that may need further investigation by specialists.


RICS Homebuyer Report

If you are buying a conventional house, flat or bungalow in a reasonable condition then this would be the report to get done as it allows you to make an informed decision about a property you intend to buy. By having this survey completed it could allow for the reopening of negotiations with sellers, gives you peace of mind that there are no visible problems or may even cause you to re think the purchase of the property due to discovering repair costs for the future.

The final report will include background information on the property and location, an estimate for the cost of re-building the property for insurance purposes. Our surveyor would simply set out clear ‘traffic light’ ratings of the condition in easy to understand ratings. Condition Rating 1 means no repair is currently needed. Condition Rating 2 shows that there are defects which need repairing but not urgently. And finally, Condition Rating 3 highlights defects that are serious and need to be dealt with urgently. This is helpful as it will provide advice on whether specialist attention should be paid before signing a contact or demonstrate any major faults that may affect its value.
