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 purchase, rent or sell.
Different homes require different types of survey. The link below to the RICS brochure explains which survey is recommend for each property type. However, you should always discuss your requirements with one of our surveyors who will be able to advise you further.
Survey level one: RICS Condition Report

Survey level two: RICS HomeBuyer Report
Includes all the features of the RICS Condition Report, plus a market valuation and insurance rebuild costs. It also includes advice on defects that may affect the value of the property with repairs, and ongoing maintenance advice.
Survey level three: RICS Building Survey
Essential for larger or older properties, or if you’re planning major works. The most comprehensive report provides you with an in-depth analysis of the property’s condition and includes advice on defects, repairs and maintenance options.
