RICS Home Surveys

When it comes to buying a house or flat, making an informed decision is crucial on account of the significant financial commitment involved. Our independent home surveys are designed to give you a clear understanding of the property’s condition, allowing you to proceed with confidence. Over the years, industry data has consistently shown that having a professional home survey can save you thousands of pounds in unexpected ‘nasty surprise’ repair costs later on.

We offer two types of RICS Home Surveys:

RICS Level 2 Survey in Leicestershire (also known as a RICS Homebuyer Report)

This cost-effective option provides all the essential information you will need. The survey findings are presented in plain English in a standardised form, for ease of understanding. We conduct a thorough inspection of the property, assessing its general condition from the chimney pots to the boundaries. A Level 2 Survey is recommended for modern homes of standard construction that are in good condition.

RICS Level 3 Survey in Leicestershire (also known as a RICS Building Survey)

This highly detailed report involves an extensive internal and external inspection of all accessible areas. It offers a comprehensive review of the property’s construction and condition, providing recommendations for remedial action. A Level 3 Survey is the right choice of survey for old properties (including listed buildings), large dwellings, non-standard constructions, and properties in poor condition or with a history of alterations.

If you need help choosing the most appropriate survey for your property needs, there a helpful guide available for you to read and download here. In addition, please don’t hesitate to contact us for professional help and guidance.

We received a very detailed report and it was followed up by a couple of informative conversations with the Surveyor. All in all a good efficient service and we were kept up to date with each stage of progress. We would recommend.

Thank you to James for the thorough level 2 house buyers report. He was very helpful in explaining all the details to me. And offered his advice any time. Very good company to deal with.

Very clear and full ‘phone briefing to start. We’re buying a house converted from very old cottages and were firmly steered to the right type of survey; CWH very aware of the area and the kinds of housing. The report itself was very clear and detailed, and helped our solicitor make sense of a slightly unusual plot and building. Reassuring to feel that all aspects of the property had been assessed. Not expensive given the thoroughness. All told a very good experience; recommended.
Dave Skinner
26 July 2023
We were buying a house "sold as seen" and we appointed CWH Surveyors to do a Level 2 House Buyers survey. Quite honestly, it was the best report of its type that we have ever had (and we've had a few!). Any remedial work that was needed was fully described with photos backing this up. Not only this but the surveyor let us know where to look to get any require work completed to a good standard. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them or use them again ourselves if we needed a good, comprehensive survey.

Thank you for doing such a good Level 2 House Buyers survey for me. I found it to be very detailed and comprehensive and the many photos of all issues identified certainly made it easier to understand the points written in the report. I fully appreciated the time Myles spent talking to me regarding the report, as he really took the time to answer any questions I had, and also gave his opinions on points and the report as a whole. I really appreciated the friendliness approachable style, along with the professionalism of the detail in the report and it's presentation. I would gladly recommend you to anyone needing a house survey. Thank you.
