RICS Survey Comparison Guide
As all our property surveyors are members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), My Local Property Surveyor offers all 3 reports through our network of qualified surveyors all of whom are local to your home. The guide below shows you the main differences between each of the 3 survey reports.
Survey level 1: RICS Condition Report
Shows the condition of the property, offers guidance to legal advisors and highlights any urgent defects. Typically the lowest priced of the surveys, it is aimed at conventional properties and newer homes.
Survey level 2: RICS HomeBuyer Report
Includes all the features of the RICS Condition Report. It also includes advice on defects that may affect the property with repairs, and ongoing maintenance advice
Survey level 3: RICS Building Survey
Essential for larger or older properties, or if you’re planning major works. The most comprehensive report provides you with an in-depth analysis of the property's condition and includes advice on defects, repairs and maintenance options
