Home Surveys & Valuation Reports

The RICS Homebuyers report aims to give you professional advice to help you to:

  • make a reasoned and informed decision on whether to go ahead with buying the property

  • take account of any repairs or replacements the property needs

  • consider what further advice you should take before exchanging contracts

It contains:

  • the surveyor's professional opinion on the 'Market Value' of the property

  • an insurance reinstatement figure for the property

  • a list of problems that the surveyor considers may affect the value of the property

  • advice on repairs and ongoing maintenance

  • issues that need to be investigated to prevent serious damage or dangerous conditions

  • legal issues that need to be addressed before completing your conveyancing; and

  • information on location, local environment and the recorded energy efficiency (where available).

The Report is in a standard format and includes; 

  • A Introduction to the report

  • B About the inspection

  • C Summary of the condition ratings

  • D About the property

  • E Outside of the property

  • F Inside of the property

  • G Services

  • H Grounds (including shared areas for flats)

  • I Issues for your legal advisers

  • J Risks
