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. In an RICS Home Survey an RICS professional 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' ratings.
Different homes require different types of survey. This video and the information above explains which survey we recommend for each property type. However, you should always discuss your requirements with your surveyor who will be able to advise you further.

Founded in 2006 by Matthew Symmonds BSc (Hons) MRICS, the practice has been developed using extensive experience and knowledge gained from working within some of London’s largest surveying firms, fused with a friendly, approachable manner.
The building survey report I received from Southdown for my proposed house purchase was extremely comprehensive and helpful. I had partly expected pages of general comments and padding. However it was very specific to the property and very detailed and it was clear that considerable amount of time and effort went into the survey itself and the report. It made very clear the remedial work and action points that are required and it will be very crucial in renegotiating the purchase price. Matthew Symonds who undertook the survey was genuinely interested and helpful in answering the various queries I had and gave me all the time I needed. He clearly understands customer service! The report was worth every penny and I have no hesitation in recommending Southdown Surveyors or using them in future.
