RICS Home Buyer Report

The most popular report for home buyers. An economic but detailed report which is suitable for the majority of residential properties, it clearly presents all findings in an easy to read format, and at an affordable price.

When would I need a Home Buyers Report?

Choose this report if you would like more extensive information whilst buying or selling a conventional house, flat or bungalow, built from common building materials and in reasonable condition. It costs more than the Condition Report but includes:

  • All of the features in the Condition Report plus a more extensive inspection.
  • The surveyor’s professional opinion on the ‘Market Value’ of the property.
  • An insurance reinstatement figure for the property.
  • A list of problems that the surveyor considers may affect the value of the property.
  • Colour coded condition ratings.
  • Issues that need to be investigated to prevent serious damage or dangerous conditions.
  • Legal issues that need to be addressed before completing your conveyancing.
  • Information on location, local environment and the recorded energy efficiency (where available).


A Home Buyers Report is a much more detailed inspection of a property than a standard Mortgage Valuation. This report is designed to be user friendly, with detailed content that's easy to understand. For properties that are conventionally built and which appear to be in acceptable condition - this report provides exactly what you need.

The main purpose of a Home Buyers Report is to help you the purchaser - make a more informed decision as to proceed with the purchase or not.

The decisions and actions you should take prior to any Exchange of Contracts will become clear - saving you making a potentially expensive mistake.
