RICS Condition Report In London
The RICS Condition Report is the most basic of our property surveys. It is sometimes referred to as a Level One survey. It provides a professional and objective report on the condition of the property at an economic price. It is less comprehensive than survey level two and survey level three. It covers the defects, urgent problems or potential dangers of a property and helps you to make the most well-informed decision about your purchase of property in London.
Is A RICS Condition Report Right For Me?
We recommend the RICS Condition Report if:
- The property appears to be in reasonable condition
- It’s 10 years old or less
- It’s built in a common style with conventional materials
- It hasn’t already been altered significantly
- You aren’t planning on making major alterations to the property
- You feel fairly confident in its condition

Why Do I Need A RICS Condition Report?
The RICS Condition Report gives you the peace of mind you need to make an informed decision about the property. It assesses its condition and any future issues that may arise, letting you make an impartial purchasing decision.
A number of standard-setting and consumer organisations (including Which? and The Council of Mortgage Lenders) recommend getting an independent home survey before committing to purchasing a property.
What Does A RICS Condition Report Give Me?
The RICS Condition Report is based on a visual inspection of all the main elements of the property and is a cost-effective option for more experienced home buyers or property investors who have a good idea of what to look for and already understand the costs involved with property maintenance.
The RICS Condition Report will highlight any defects, urgent problems or potential dangers with a property. You can use the RICS Condition Report, compiled by our Chartered Surveyors, to negotiate the price of the property, or simply to give yourself peace of mind that the property has no immediate and obvious problems.

Very efficient and helpful over the phone. I strongly recommend as they take the time to talk you through the process, especially if you are a new home buyer like myself. Thank you for all your help!!
Barnes and Partners carried out a probate valuation for me following the death of my wife. It all went well and was completed in around a week.
The biggest benefit of Barnes and Barnes was that we felt secure in our purchase.
Grant and his team were responsive and friendly producing a very thorough report within agreed timescales.
Barnes and Barnes were recommended to me, and I would definitely recommend them to others myself. I commissioned them to do a Home Buyer Report. The Report was thorough and very informative. The surveyor was also available for a follow-up phone call. I had the impression they really care about their job, which is very reassuring as a property buyer.
Valuation of residential property. An informative report was produced on time and for a reasonable price. Helpful and polite staff.
Mr Barnes was very helpful in identifying important defects in the house which we were planning to purchase, and as a result, we were able to avoid a bad bargain. His surveying report was also extremely detailed and well-written, and his advice very professional. We would definitely recommend his firm to others.
I commissioned a probate valuation survey from Barnes & Barnes of my late father’s flat in Islington for inheritance tax purposes. I do not live in Islington and needed an accurate valuation from professionals who are familiar with the area and know the local property market. Grant carried out a thorough survey and the valuation report was well-reasoned and easy to follow. I was and am very pleased with the service I received.
The survey was arranged speedily and efficiently and carried out on the day specified. The report was full and produced to a good standard although it took slightly longer than the time originally indicated. The post report discussions with the surveyor himself were very helpful.
