Your survey options

A survey by the ING showed that on average people spend more time choosing a new TV than they do a new home.
This may come as a surprise seeing as for most people, buying a home is the most expensive purchase they will ever make.
Getting a survey from an RICS Chartered Surveyor will help highlight any problems that could lead to expensive surprises later.
An RICS Home Survey will give you:
§  Peace of mind – You’ll know what you’re getting into before you make possibly the biggest purchase of your life
§  A leverage tool to negotiate on price if problems are found
§  Satisfaction that you’re paying a fair price for the property
Don’t make a move without an RICS Survey.
RICS HomeBuyer Report
Our RICS HomeBuyer Report gives you all of the above, plus separate market valuation and insurance reinstatement costs and advice on defects that may affect the value of the property, with repairs and ongoing maintenance advice.
Building Survey
The Building Survey gives you a comprehensive structural report including defects, repair and maintenance options. Essential for larger or older properties or if you’re planning major works.
