Home Survey and Valuation – Level 2

Request A Callback

    The RICS HomeBuyer report is designed for relatively straightforward and fairly modern properties which have no known major defects. We also tend to recommend this type of report for flats.

    It includes:

    • clear ‘traffic light’ ratings of the condition of all the different parts of the building, services, garage and outbuildings
    • a clear broken down summary of the risks to the building
    • advice on guarantees, planning and building control matters for your legal advisers
    • a list of problems that the surveyor considers may affect the property
    • advice on repairs and ongoing maintenance
    • issues that need to be investigated to prevent serious damage or dangerous conditions
    • information on location, local environment and the recorded energy efficiency (where available)
    • the surveyor’s professional opinion on the ‘market value’ of the property
    • an insurance reinstatement figure for the property

    To discuss your needs please telephone 0113 293 0600 or email admin@kgsurveys.co.uk.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    • What is contained in an RICS HomeBuyers Report?
      The reports is broken down into different elements of the building; each element is described in terms of condition and construction, and any defects or issues are flagged up and briefly explained
    • Do you look in the loft/cellar?
      Our surveyors will look in all areas of the property including lofts, cellars and any sub-floor areas providing reasonable access is available.
    • How is the RICS HomeBuyers Report different to the Building Survey?
      The RICS HomeBuyers Report and Building Survey cover most of the same elements, the key difference is that we are able to go into more detail with the Building Survey, particularly when we find an issue or defect with the property; this is why the Building Survey is more suitable for older properties, or those which have been extended/altered.
