The importance of getting an RICS Home Survey

Thursday, July 23, 2015

Dream home? Or worst nightmare? A home is the most expensive purchase most people ever make.

As an owner you will benefit from expert advice on the condition of your property - whether you plan to live in it, rent it out or sell it.

A mortgage valuation is for the benefit of your lender, while a survey is for your benefit. An RICS Home Survey will highlight any potential problems.

In an RICS Home Survey an RICS member conducts an in-depth visual inspection of the property. Their report provides an expert account of the property's condition and highlights any problems in clear and easy to understand 'traffic light' ratings.

Contact an RICS member to discuss which level of service best suits your circumstances and needs. Find an RICS Home Survey provider in your area
