It Includes An Independent Market Valuation...

This survey report is our most popular product and will give a purchaser a detailed assessment of the property together with advice on future maintenance. Although slightly more expensive than the RICS Condition Report, the Homebuyer Report is still a very affordable survey and ideal for the vast majority of homebuyers. Importantly it includes a market valuation and a buildings insurance calculation.

The report is written in plain English using easy to understand “traffic light” ratings to reflect the seriousness of defects. The report also has a section on advice for your legal adviser.

The benefits of a RICS Homebuyer Report Include:

  • A concise description of construction and condition of the property
  • The identification of problems which are serious or require urgent attention
  • Information on items requiring further investigation
  • Information on problems which may be dangerous or pose a risk to the building
  • Advice on future maintenance
  • A market valuation
  • A building insurance reinstatement calculation
