A home is the most expensive purchase most people ever make. As an owner you will benefit from expert advice on the condition of your property – whether you plan to live in it, rent it out or sell it. By commissioning an RICS Home Survey you can feel assured that the service you receive is impartial and reliable.
WHAT IS A BUILDING SURVEY?
Survey Level 3: RICS Building Survey
Essential for larger or older properties, or if you’re planning major works. The most comprehensive report includes all the elements of a homebuyer report and provides you with a more in-depth analysis of the property’s condition and includes advice on defects, repairs and maintenance options.
In an RICS Building Survey one of our RICS professionals conducts an in-depth visual inspection of the property. Their report provides an expert account of the property’s condition and highlights any problems in clear and easy to understand ‘traffic light’ rating.
A Building Survey is generally better for properties that:
• are much older and built more than 100 years ago
• have undergone major extension or alteration
• are much larger and offer extensive accommodation
• you plan to alter in the future
• are of non-traditional construction.
