Looking to buy a new home or investment property?

If you're looking for a new home or investment property, you will need to ensure you know what condition the property is in before you complete the purchase. Our HomeBuyer surveys include checking on any alterations that have been made to the property, any planning permissions or approvals for building regulations.

Detailed property information

An RICS HomeBuyer survey provides you with detailed information on your potential property purchase. It includes an RICS  market valuation as well as an insurance assessment for the buildings.


The report will also highlight any apparent defects that may affect the value and will comment upon the overall condition of the property. This will help enable you to make a very well informed and safe decision on whether to purchase or not, or to re-negotiate the purchase price.


What does an RICS HomeBuyer survey look out for?

  • Problems with the structure and build materials

  • Defects with services such as heating, electrics, gas and drainage

  • Legal matters that may have an implication for valuation

  • Building alterations

  • Ownership of boundaries

Any findings in the report can be discussed with Mike once you have received it. He will be happy to put any issues into context so that you are aware of any matters that need attention before you commit to the purchase.
