HOMEBUYER REPORT (level 2)
The Homebuyer report is a level 2 survey service for homebuyers who are seeking a professional opinion at an economical price. It is, therefore, less comprehensive than a level three service. The focus is on assessing When you want to survey a conventional, modern property in good condition and have more detail to help your big decision, choose our Homebuyer Report.
Is a Homebuyer Report right for me?
Should you want a thorough visual inspection and advice about the condition and necessary repairs, this intermediate report is for you.
Choosing a RICS Homebuyer report is right if the property is fairly modern, say from the mid-1980s – onwards and hasn’t already been extended or altered significantly.
This report is not suitable for older properties as it would probably flag more questions than answers. If you’re buying an older (pre-1985), altered or extended property, please choose our RICS Building Survey instead.
What will the report give me?
Providing a thorough picture of your property, we visually inspect the main aspects of the building – internally and externally – such as walls, roof, windows, floors and doors.
Unlike a Condition Report, we provide advice on the remedial work required and recommend any further investigations (should that be necessary).
Once you’ve booked your survey, we handle everything for you. Following a desk study, we arrange to visit your property and independently inspect it on your behalf. Your interests are always our focus.
We write your report in plain English, ensuring it’s easy to understand. And you’ll love our simple traffic light system that rates the issues we discover.
So you’re totally clear; you can chat with your surveyor directly should you have any questions after receiving your report.
Your survey will include:
- Full inspection of the structure (including lofts and basements)
- Assessment of fixtures and fittings (kitchen, doors, windows, etc.)
- Visual inspection of the gas, electrics, solar and plumbing
- Check for dampness and timber defects
- Visual inspection of outbuildings and grounds
- Review of environmental factors (such as flooding, pests and noise)
