RICS Home Survey level 1 (Home Condition report)
putting the client first
The RICS Home Survey level 1 (Home Condition report) is a brief and economic survey of the building which will highlight the current condition of each element of the building. The report will not contain any advice on repairs or ongoing maintenance.
The RICS Home Survey level 1 (Home Condition report) includes:
- Description of each element of the property
- Comment on condition
- A summary of condition ratings
- The report does not include a market valuation or reinstatement cost
The report is only suitable for modern traditionally built properties and Elliott Consultants Ltd will only undertake a condition report on a property which is less than 10 years old and which have not been altered internally or extended.
The level of inspection is significantly less than our RICS Home Survey level 2 (Homebuyer report) and our Home Survey level 3 (Building survey report). Inspection will be from ground level only, although binoculars will be used where necessary, a head and shoulders inspection of the roof space will be carried out and the drains will not be inspected.
