THE RICS HOMEBUYER REPORT
A RICS HomeBuyer Report, or Home Survey, is conducted by our RICS qualified surveyors, who carry out a detailed visual inspection of your property, or the property you are considering purchasing.
The surveyor will consider any specific areas of concern you may have prior to the survey and these will be examined thoroughly, and appropriate advice provided.
The report you are supplied with following the inspection uses the easy to understand 'traffic light' rating system, so you can clearly see the property's condition, and any areas of concern.
The report comments on the condition of the property, provides guidance to your legal advisers, and highlights any urgent defects. It will give advice on defects that may affect the value of the property with repairs, and on-going maintenance advice. An insurance rebuild cost can be provided at no additional cost if requested, and a market valuation can also be supplied for a small additional fee. Environmental issues are also covered including flooding, mining, soil types, radon presence, landfill sites or any other areas of concern.
