RICS Homebuyer Report

Level 2 Survey

What is an RICS Homebuyer Report?

An RICS Homebuyer Report is a detailed visual inspection of the property. This survey provides an account of the property’s condition and highlights significant problems with a straightforward ‘traffic light’ rating. It focuses on urgent or significant defects that may affect the value of the property. It is also referred to as a Level 2 Survey.

Our surveyors are on hand to carry out RICS Homebuyer Reports across the country. Request a quote now or use our quick cost calculator below.

When should you choose an RICS Homebuyer Report?

An RICS Homebuyer report is most suitable for conventional houses, flats, or bungalows that are in reasonable condition and built from common building materials. A Homebuyer Report is not recommended for older buildings, as these builds often require a more in-depth Level 3 survey.

Armed with market-leading expertise, our RICS-qualified surveying team use the standard traffic light system to make understanding the health of your property easy. This system breaks down into three key colour codes:

Green: No action required

Amber: Defects requiring attention and repair but not urgently

Red: Serious defects requiring urgent attention and repair

    I had a surveyor do a valuation at my property yesterday for my buyer. The surveyor … read more was professional, friendly and very polite. I was extremely anxious after reading all the negative reviews that my house would be down valued, but alas no! My buyers have paid over the asking price for my house and the surveyor has valued it at the exact same amount. I'm so pleased and grateful for SDL.
    Thank you.

    Great service from this company. Arranged by my lender, SDL rang to book an appointment … read more very quickly. Then rang back to offer an earlier slot. Paul rang 30 mins before arriving as promised. He was extremely pleasant, helpful and thorough. No complaint from us at all.

    The surveyor who attended was extremely professional, showing covid awareness and … read more politeness from the very start. He was informative, engaging and made what could have been a strictly procedural meeting, a more personable and enjoyable one. We shared good conversation and SDL should be made aware that this surveyor represents the company in an excellent way. Would definitely recommend their services as a result
