Make sure your dream home is not a nightmare in disguise with the RICS Home Survey Level Two Report

Having a CWH Surveyors RICS Home Survey Level Two Report, backed by the full authority of RICS, is an inexpensive way of giving you peace of mind during your property buying or selling process.

All too often we hear of stories about ‘homes from hell’ where home owners have been lumbered with huge bills for work they didn’t expect. Having a survey carried out by an RICS Chartered Surveyor is a great way to help you ensure you’re not hit with any nasty unexpected bills.

"Having an independent comprehensive survey done by a RICS member...could save you thousands of pounds." TV’s Phil Spencer, speaking on ‘On The House’

Your RICS Home Survey Level Two Report will include:

An examination of the property from the chimney pots to the boundaries, we take a good look around and assess the general condition of the fabric of the property.

Condition Rating

The report when completed includes a simple ratings guide which is colour coded, to make it easy to see if and where there are problems with the condition of the property.

So before you commit to buying your dream home, make sure that you request a RICS Home Survey Level Two Report from CWH Surveyors.

It will help you:

  • Make an informed decision on whether to go ahead with buying the property; 
  • Decide what is a reasonable price to pay for the property;
  • take account of any repairs or replacements the property needs;
  • and consider if you need any further advice before exchanging contracts.
