RICS Homebuyer Survey


Salter Rex holds copyright licence agreement from the RICS to produce RICS Homebuyer Reports.  We provide such reports for flats and houses within the M25.  If you are considering purchasing a flat or house we would strongly recommend not just to rely on a mortgage valuation but have a comprehensive home buyer report which can be personally tailor made to suit your needs and answer any concerns you may have with regard to extensions, conversions or opening up areas to facilitate modern open plan living.  

This survey examines the structural elements of the building from drains right up through your home to the roof and chimney giving you a comprehensive report on such defects including dampness structural stability, defective timbers, highlighting these within a traffic light signalling process.  These indicate urgent repairs, significant matters requiring further investigation, significant repairs and renewals and other relevant considerations you should be made aware of when purchasing your new home.

In addition to these issues we will also consider the legal situation with regard to access, rights of way or any other concerns we would wish to bring to your solicitors attention to ensure that they carry out full due diligence on your behalf as we are effectively their eyes and ears when carrying out the survey and would identify any issues we would expect them to investigate more thoroughly than usual.

Within the Homebuyers survey we will provide you with a market value together with a reinstatement cost for rebuilding purposes and these are all valuable tools for you to use to possibly renegotiate your purchase price, obtain estimates for works prior to your purchase or to put your mind at ease that you are purchasing a sound property at the correct price.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require further detailed information on the RICS Homebuyer Report.
