The RICS HomeBuyer Report is the next step up from a private valuation. The report will help highlight any serious problems and advise you of the specific risks before you commit to the process of buying or selling a property. This type of survey can only be conducted by an RICS qualified surveyor which ensures that this report is provided with the upmost professionalism.
Thinking of buying a property?
It’s important to remember that a mortgage lender’s valuation report is not a survey. It merely tells your lender whether or not the property is reasonable security for your loan. An RICS HomeBuyer Report will tell you the actual condition of the property. That’s vital information that can be invaluable during price negotiations, and will also help you avoid expensive surprises after you’ve moved in. The report also includes a valuation of the property as a standard part of the service for your own purposes.
Selling your property or happy where you are?
An RICS survey can be an aid to selling your home. It will show you any problems that may delay your sale or cause price reductions later in the process. If you are planning on staying where you are, a survey of the current condition of your home will warn you of defects and help you avoid escalating repair and maintenance costs in the future.
