A RICS Level 1 Condition survey is an inspection and condition report that assesses and summarises the condition of a house. Coming in a format that is standardised by the RICS (Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors), this report provides homebuyers with an overview of the property’s condition, identifying the main defects and overall condition of the house.
The RICS Level 1 survey is an entry level survey giving a basic and straightforward report of the property.
As with all reports provided by Insight Surveyors the Building Surveyor who undertakes the report will be available before and after undertaking the survey to answer any questions and further explain the items raised.
Is this the right survey for me?
The level 1 survey is aimed at conventional house, flat or bungalow built from common building materials and in a reasonable condition. It will focus purely on the condition of the property giving a summary of the risk to the condition of the building and advising on replacement parts guarantees, planning and control matters.
We generally advise clients that a RICS Level 1 condition survey is an ‘entry level’ survey. For a more detailed, in-depth report, we also offer a Level 2 Homebuyer and Level 3 Building Survey Report.
