RICS Home Survey Level 1 - (Condition Report)

Based on a traffic light system, the RICS Home Survey Level 1 (Condition Report) focuses on the condition of the property only and flags up any areas that need attention. It does not give advice or a valuation.

Suitable for: Fairly recently built, small properties, such as new builds or conventional homes in good condition that you're not planning to do any extensive work to.

RICS Home Survey Level 2 - (Homebuyer Report)

The RICS Home Survey Level 2 (Homebuyer Report) is more detailed and gives you a valuation of the property. It includes an extensive inspection and highlights defects or anything which may affect the property's value with the traffic lights system, but the Homebuyer report doesn't look beyond the floor coverings, boards or behind the wall finishes, but does give advice on further inspections or investigations needed. Does include loft areas, damp checks, any signs of building movement found.

Our Level 2 Homebuyer Reports are from £375 with no VAT to pay.

Suitable for: Most conventional properties built around 1900 onwards, in a reasonable condition and/ or on which you are considering small scale alterations but does not include advice on the alterations or extensions to be made.

RICS Home Survey Level 3 – (Building Survey)

The RICS Home Survey Level 3 (Building Survey) gives an extensive inspection of the property condition including detailed information about the fabric of the property and its structure. The report also includes descriptions of visible defects and warns of potential hidden flaws together with an outline of additional investigations and repair options.

Suitable for: Unusual, older or non-traditional buildings or those that have been significantly altered. Buildings that are conventional but in poor condition or that you are planning major alterations to - but does not include advice on the alterations or extensions to be made.

Our Level 3 Home Surveys are available from £650 with no VAT to pay.

If you are unsure if a Building Survey is what you need, please ask.

What our clients say

"We engaged EyeSurvey to help prepare a full survey report for a new property purchase. The report was thorough, well structured and easy to understand. The process was also extremely quick and easy - we engaged EyeSurvey on a Friday, they attended the property for inspection the following Tuesday and we had the final report less than 24 hours later. Would definitely recommend and use them again"

James Castles


"When an issue came up about a boundary fence I share with my neighbour, I contacted Mr Long who encouraged me to first try to reach an agreement with my neighbour. However, when the matter seemed to be getting worse, I called him out; he carried out a survey and sent me his report within a few days. I now have some assurance and peace of mind"


"We received a wonderful service from Eyesurvey, we cannot recommend them enough. From our first phone call, Les was very efficient and helpful, willing to answer any questions we may have had. Thankfully, our survey was booked in fairly quickly, and we were kept updated on any progress made. We would not hesitate to use Eyesurvey again with any future house purchases. Thank you again for your services!"
