The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors has designed the Homebuyer (Home Buyer) Survey and Valuation report to provide a prospective purchaser with basic information in a standardised format.
It includes details of:
- General condition and form of construction.
- Significant factors which might influence or affect value.
- Market value.
- Valuation for insurance.
Information is provided in a simple, straightforward form, easy to read and understand. It has recommendations for ‘action’ clearly stated. Inspection is limited to those parts of the building that can be reached safely and easily using a 3m (10 ft) ladder. It includes inspection of boundaries, outbuildings and overall visual inspection of services. It does not include examination of inaccessible parts or testing of services. Key defects will be identified. It is important to appreciate that the surveyor is not required to provide advice on repair or to comment in detail.

Your Home Condition Survey means you will know all you need to know about the house you’re about to buy.
