A more extensive report suitable for non-conventional buildings and special building projects
The Building Survey is based on extensive analysis and a thorough building inspection is undertaken. The report will give you an idea of what works you should undertake to the building immediately, noting any options that you might wish to consider, and what are the likely repairs in the next few years for which you should make contingency plans. It is also suitable to help a buyer who intends to substantial alter the arrangement of the property or is deliberately purchasing a property that has known defects.
An RICS Building Survey does not include
You should choose an RICS Building Survey if you’re dealing with a large, older or run-down property, a building that is unusual or altered, or if you’re planning major works. It costs more than the other RICS reports because it gives detailed information about the structure and fabric of the property.
All RICS Home Surveys use clear ‘traffic light’ ratings of the condition of different parts of the building, services, garage and outbuildings, showing problems that require varying degrees of attention. Items marked as Red - Condition 3 are about things that need immediate attention, items marked as Amber - Condition 2 are about things that will need the attention of any buyer or the existing owner within in the very near future.
