RICS HomeBuyer Report

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is ideal for properties of traditional construction in an apparently reasonable condition. It includes a detailed inspection of the property and the following:

  • Clear ‘traffic light’ ratings of the condition of different parts of the building, services, garage and outbuildings, showing problems that may require varying degrees of attention.
  • A summary of the risks to the condition of the building.
  • A list of problems that the surveyor considers may affect the property.
  • Advice on repairs and ongoing maintenance.
  • Issues that need to be investigated to prevent serious damage or dangerous conditions.
  • Legal issues that need to be addressed before completing your purchase.
  • Information on location, local environment and the recorded energy efficiency (where available).

Overall this report will reveal a property’s true condition and highlight any major defects. This gives buyers the information needed to help make a reasoned decision on whether to go ahead with a purchase. Given it is the less expensive of the two surveys, it offers peace of mind for a reasonable price.


With Gausden-Lane, we also include a free of charge consultation following any report to discuss it and any questions clients may have. All reports are written in plain English and will give a balanced view in order that clients fully understand the condition of the property. For more information or to discuss your surveying needs, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
