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.

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
