Understanding RICS Surveys: A Guide by NIVEK Surveying Services

When it comes to buying or selling property, a comprehensive survey is crucial to ensure that you're making an informed decision. At NIVEK Surveying Services, based in Derby, we pride ourselves on delivering detailed and reliable RICS surveys. But what exactly are RICS surveys, and why are they important?

What is an RICS Survey?

RICS, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, sets the benchmark for property surveys in the UK. An RICS survey is a thorough inspection of a property, aimed at uncovering any potential issues that could affect its value or condition. There are three main types of RICS surveys:

  1. RICS Condition Report: This is the most basic survey, providing an overview of the property's condition, highlighting any urgent defects or serious risks. It is ideal for conventional properties in reasonable condition.

  2. RICS HomeBuyer Report: A more detailed survey, this report includes all the elements of the Condition Report, plus advice on repairs and maintenance. It also provides a market valuation and insurance rebuild cost. This is suitable for most standard properties.

  3. RICS Building Survey: The most comprehensive option, this survey provides an in-depth analysis of the property's condition, including detailed advice on defects, repairs, and maintenance options. It is especially recommended for older or non-standard properties.
