RICS Home Survey - Level 2
RICS Homebuyer Report
Our RICS surveyor gives condition ratings to the main parts (the ‘elements’) of the main building, garage and some outside elements. The Condition Ratings are as follows:
Defects that are serious and/or need to be repaired, replaced or investigated urgently.
Failure to do so could risk serious safety issues or severe long-term damage to your property. Written quotations for repairs should be obtained prior to legal commitment to purchase.

This is a non-intrusive survey. This means that the surveyor will not look behind or move large furniture, or lift floorboards as part of the survey.
For a standard size property, we aim to have our survey of your building complete within 2-4 hours from arrival, which may vary for larger or smaller properties. We also aim to have the full report available to you within 5-7 working days of the surveying taking place.
After a survey has been completed you will receive advice and technical information based on the survey you choose.
This includes guidance on any maintenance or remediation necessary.
