Home Survey

I want to receive news and updates


A RICS Homebuyer Survey can only be undertaken by a Chartered Surveyor who is also a Regulated Valuer. This is a survey completed to a standard format set out by RICS – it’s most suitable for conventional properties built within the last 150 years, which are in reasonable condition. It is a more detailed inspection designed to give the purchaser useful information in a "user friendly" format.

The inspection will look at all reasonably accessible parts of the property internally and externally (from ground level or publicly accessible areas) and comment generally on their state of repair and condition. The roof void will be entered (where practicable) to enable the surveyor to comment on the condition of the roof structure.

An overall impression of the services will be given (but they will not be tested). Permanent outbuildings such as garages will be commented upon but only in respect of serious defects.

The site, boundaries, paths etc will be reported upon in relation to special risks, such as large nearby trees.

Surveys are carried out by JRB Chartered Surveyors who are regulated by RICS

This report is suitable for most properties, but not those which are very large, old or of unusual construction.
