Choosing the right survey

Our team is often asked which survey is the right one for you. There are three levels of the RICS home surveys: the Condition Report (level 1), the HomeBuyer Report (level 2), and the Building Survey (level 3). The best property survey will depend on the property and take into account the age and condition of the property, as well as what you have planned for it.

Grant highlighted that there are serious issues with a property that we were not aware of, we did not proceed. We learnt later on that had we proceeded with the transaction, it would have a huge financial impact on us.
