RICS Homebuyer Survey

The RICS Homebuyer Report or Level 2 Report is the most popular survey on the market. RICS state that this type f survey s suitable for most buildings of standard construction built after 1930. It is designed to provide a purchaser with an independent and thorough overview of a property concentrating on significant matters that may typically affect value and to enable them to make an informed decision whether to proceed or not.
