We can tailor our surveys and reports to suit your exact needs. We can provide all the information you need to make an informed decision regarding your property purchase.
A RICS HomeBuyer Report, now known as a RICS Level 2 Home Survey, is instructed by you and for your personal use. This report is suitable for properties which are of a standard construction standard, and of a reasonable size and condition. RICS provide this report as an 'economy' option which gives an overall condition of the property as well as identifying any defects and issues which may affect its value.
As well as the standard information in your RICS Level 2 Home Survey, we can also include a market valuation and insurance rebuild costs as additional extras. If your purchase is being funded by a mortgage, the lender will carry out a basic valuation but this does not address the condition of the building and is mainly for the lender's benefit rather than the buyer. A RICS Level 2 Home Survey report will give you all the information you need to make the decision as to whether it is worth re-negotiating the purchase price.
