RICS Home Surveys

When you’re in the process of buying a house or flat, it’s vital to be able to make an informed decision, given the substantial financial commitment involved. Our independent home surveys provide a clear understanding of the property’s condition, giving you confidence in your decision. Industry data consistently show that having a professional home survey can save you thousands of pounds in unexpected repair costs after you take ownership.

We offer two types of RICS Home Surveys:

RICS Level 2 Survey (aka RICS Homebuyer Report)

This cost-effective option gives you all the essential information you need. The survey findings are presented in an easy-to-understand format in plain English. Our surveyor will inspect the property, assessing its general condition from the chimney pots to the boundaries. A Level 2 Survey is suitable for modern standard properties in reasonable repair.

RICS Level 3 Survey (aka RICS Building Survey)

This highly detailed survey involves an extensive inspection of all accessible areas, delivering a comprehensive assessment of the property’s construction and condition, along with our recommendations for repair and upkeep. A Level 3 Survey is most suited to old buildings, large dwellings, non-standard constructions and properties in poor condition.

For advice to help you choose the right survey for your property needs, there’s a handy guide to read and download here. Of course, you are most welcome to contact us for professional advice 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.

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.
