RICS LEVEL 2 HOME SURVEY Report (Previously known as a Homebuyer Survey)
JRB Surveyors offer 2 types of survey for Homebuyers.
The Home Survey Level 2 Report Service provides an inspection of the Property, a Report on the condition of the Property and includes the Surveyors opinion of the Market Value of the Property. A Home Survey Level 2 Report is suitable for most property types.
This Report can be prepared with or without a Valuation.
The Report use a traffic light system to rate the condition of each element of the building, including advice on defects/repairs and maintenance considerations.
This level of service is for clients who are seeking a professional opinion at an economic price. It is, therefore, less comprehensive than a level three service. The focus is on assessing the general condition of the main elements of a property.
This intermediate level of service includes a more extensive visual inspection of the building, its services and grounds, but still without tests. Concealed areas normally opened or used by the occupiers are inspected if it is safe to do so (typical examples include roof spaces, basements and cellars). The report objectively describes the condition of the different elements and provides an assessment of the relative importance of the defects/problems. At this level, although it is concise, the report does include advice about repairs and any ongoing maintenance issues. Where the surveyor is unable to reach a conclusion with reasonable confidence, a recommendation for further investigations should be made.
