RICS HomeBuyer Survey

There are three levels of surveys undertaken by RICS members:

  • Level 1 — RICS Condition Report

  • Level 2 — RICS HomeBuyer Report

  • Level 3 — RICS Building Survey


Please get in touch or click here to find the RICS guidance helping you to choose the right Survey.


We provide Level 2 - RICS HomeBuyer Surveys for all types of residential property, on behalf of buyers, sellers, and owners planning renovation projects.

The HomeBuyer Survey is an intermediate-level survey of RICS suitable for all types of residential property in reasonable condition built from 1900 onwards. You can choose this report if you would like more extensive information whilst buying or selling a conventional house, flat or bungalow, built from common building materials and in reasonable condition.

The surveyor who provides the RICS HomeBuyer Service aims to give you professional advice to help you to:


  • make an informed decision on whether to go ahead with buying the property

  • take account of any repairs or replacements the property needs; and

  • consider what further advice you should take before committing to purchase the property.



An RICS HomeBuyer report can help you assess whether you’re paying a fair price and minimize the risk of unexpected problems and costs in the future.
