What is a RICS Home Survey Level 1 Condition Report?
A RICS Home Survey Level 1 Condition Report, previously known as a RICS Condition Report, is one of the surveys available when purchasing a property. There are three commonly used surveys when buying your home, and the RICS Level 1 Condition Report is the least thorough of surveys undertaken.
When do you need a RICS Home Survey Level 1 Condition Report?
The Level 1 Condition Report Survey provides a basic overview of a property’s condition and any risks it may contain. Unlike more in-depth surveys available, it doesn’t include a valuation.
The Level 1 RICS Condition Report is a short, surface-level inspection of a property utilised to highlight any obvious defects. The Level 1 Survey is a professional inspection created by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) to ensure that a buyer is aware of any significant issues before committing to the purchase of a property.
However, it does not include recommendations, advice, or the cost of any repairs that may be noted and needed. It also doesn’t have a valuation of the property.
