An RICS HomeBuyer survey is a professional service designed and recommended by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors to evaluate and report a property’s condition. It is easy to view a property and like the look and feel of it; A HomeBuyer survey looks beyond that initial impression.
An RICS qualified surveyor would assess the condition of all parts of the property. The surveyor will assess a variety of areas such as cracks, damp, roof etc. Based on the assessment, the surveyor will produce an RICS prescribed HomeBuyer report.
A HomeBuyer report will help you understand what you are really buying.
If you are making an investment in a property, you want to be well informed. While you might not find out the hidden issues of a home until after you buy, a HomeBuyer survey reduces that risk significantly.
A HomeBuyer survey is a comprehensive check of your potential property, so that you are well equipped to deal with possible issues. The survey can help you identify any likely deal-breakers that might make you think twice about your investment.
The report may also help you negotiate the property price due to any discovered issues.
Homes built within the last 50 years, made of standard construction material, and without any significant repair or extensions are suitable for a HomeBuyer survey.
