A RICS level 2 Homebuyer Report 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 Homebuyer Report focuses on the condition of the house and the Surveyor’s general opinion of the property will also be provided. The report highlights the findings in a way that is easily understood with a ‘traffic light condition rating system’, this provides a useful rating on the priority and urgency of any repairs required, giving a clear idea of what needs addressing and in what order.
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.
