Thank you again for your very thorough and helpful report. it will become the backbone of our efforts to maintain the house in the coming months and years, hopefully, if all goes well.
There are three main RICS survey types:
- Level 1 Survey (Condition Survey),
- Level 2 Survey (Home Buyer Survey),
- Level 3 Survey (Full Building Survey).
The level of RICS survey you require will depend on the age and construction of your property.
A property is a significant investment, and knowing what you’re buying can save you money, time, and stress in the long run. RICS surveys can help identify any potential issues with the property, negotiate the price of the property, and help you decide whether to proceed with the sale. In addition, RICS surveys can be helpful as a seller, as you’ll be aware of any problems with the building and prevent a sale from falling through.
If you’re purchasing a property through a government shared equity scheme such as Shared Ownership or Help to Buy, or you’re looking into using a Right to Buy scheme, you’ll also need a RICS Valuation, as this provides an independent valuation of your property.
Here at Robinson Elliott Surveyors, we offer a range of RICS surveys across the South East, including Sussex, Surrey, Kent, and London. We pride ourselves on providing our customers with an expert and knowledgeable service, offering the most relevant recommendations regarding RICS surveys. We understand that purchasing a property can be very stressful, so a thorough report is critical, as it lets you know exactly what you’re buying.
