Do I need a home survey?

Buying a home is typically the most significant and costly decision you will make and often, especially in the current market, you have more time deciding on a new paint colour for the living room than the actual purchase!

We believe it is essential to obtain an objective assessment on the property’s condition and a guide on other key considerations with a RICS Home Survey prepared by a Chartered Building Surveyor who has a deep knowledge and understanding of the property in Bristol and the south west.

Quick lead-in & 48 hour issue service

  • Between our team of Chartered Building Surveyors at Lantic, based in Bristol and the south west, we can typically inspect in around 10 working days following a formal instruction.
  • We provide a streamlined next day email service for all Level 2 Surveys.
  • Once you have had a good read of the report, we can then arrange a follow up call to go through all your questions.

RICS Level 2 Survey

The RICS Level 2 Survey (formerly known as a Homebuyers Report) is the most popular home survey for residential property purchases.

Th report provides detail on the general condition of the property with advice on repairs and routine maintenance. The RICS Level 2 Survey is best suited for conventional houses, bungalows and flats, built from common materials and in a fair state of repair. The RICS Level 2 Survey identifies significant and serious red flags which could affect the value of the property and an onward sale.

There are three levels of RICS home survey available, including the Level 3 Survey (also sometimes referred to as a Structural Survey) and we have prepared a blog post on choosing the right survey level here.
