The Home Buyer Survey and Valuation is a private report supplied to you as a prospective buyer. It’s a pro-forma document about 10-15 pages long designed by the RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors).
This type of property survey is only meant to tell you about any significant or major progressive defects – and to show how these defects might affect the house valuation.
It won’t always tell you how to put any defects right – but will advise you to make further enquiries or investigations.
We don’t recommend a Home Buyer Survey regardless of the age or perceived condition of a property – we believe it doesn’t really give you enough information, or enough detail to make a really informed decision whether or not to buy the property. You can get much more information for the same money with the Full Building Survey.
