Sample home survey reports
Getting a home survey can be a confusing process, but it doesn’t need to be. If you’re interested in finding out what the process entails and what a surveyor will look for, you can download a sample home survey report below to see what it includes.
What are the different types of home surveys?
There are two types of home survey we provide. Both adhere to RICS’ new Home Survey Standard, which was introduced in March 2021 to simplify the market and provide greater clarity, consistency and transparency to consumers.
RICS is the professional body for chartered surveyors and other property professionals. It promotes the highest standards and best practice across the industry.
Getting a home survey that meets the new RICS standard will ensure you’re getting the best possible quality, service and advice.
A Home Survey Level Two
Which used to be called a RICS Homebuyer Report – provides an extensive assessment of the condition of a property. It includes all the information covered by a standard property valuation, along with maintenance advice and guidance on any defects that may adversely affect the property’s value.
It is suitable for most types of standard properties in reasonable condition and constructed from common building materials.
A Home Survey Level Three
Which used to be known as a building survey – provides a professional opinion on a property’s condition based on a detailed assessment. It’s more extensive than a Home Survey Level Two and includes a thorough visual inspection of the building, services, and grounds.
