RICS HomeBuyer Report

The HomeBuyer Report is recommended when more extensive information is needed on conventional houses, flats or bungalows built from common building materials and apparently in reasonable condition. It costs more than the Condition Report, but includes a more extensive inspection, the surveyor’s professional opinion on the ‘market value’ of the property, an insurance reinstatement figure for the property, a list of problems 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 conveyancing is completed, and information on location and local environment.
