Types of Survey and Report

Houses can be money pits and buying a house is a major investment – so the homebuyer really needs to be able to make an informed decision. For this reason a well-informed purchaser will commisssion a survey of the property which they intend to buy.

Buying a house can be stressful and it is not always in the seller’s best interests to be fully open about its quirks and idiosyncrasies. A survey report based on a thorough inspection of the property tells the buyer about any aspects of the property that need urgent attention or which present serious faults, as well as any longer term repairs that a home owner might have to plan for.

There are two types of survey and report which I can offer as a Chartered Building Surveyor and Home Inspector. These are the Building Survey, which is described as a Level 3 survey by RICS, and the Residential Survey Report, which is described as a Level 2 survey by RICS. For more details of the Terms of Engagement for each type of survey, please refer to the appropriate information. If you would like to see a sample of any of these reports please click on the appropriate link below.

This includes an inspection of the property which is as comprehensive as is possible in the circumstances, as described in the Conditions of Engagement which are provided prior to the survey. The report is set out to the individual surveyor's format, and is not restricted in length or scope.
