RICS Homebuyer Report 

The Homebuyer Report will not highlight relatively minor defects or faults which do not materially affect the value of the property. A licenced RICS product providing "traffic light" ratings on urgent repairs and significant defects of a property, best suited to homes built after 1920. This type of report includes a market valuation, a reinstatement cost for insurance purposes and advice regarding ongoing maintenance and any defects identified. Quotations are provided on the agreed purchase price of the property. 

RICS Building Survey 

This type of report is essential if the property is Listed, a conversion, in a bad state of repair or you are considering major works.  This is best suited to property constructed before 1920. This is an in-depth and detailed report on the condition of the structure of a property, regardless of age or size. The building survey is a bespoke type report providing advice on defects found, repairs and maintenance options. The RICS building survey does not include a market valuation or reinstatement cost.  These can be provided at an optional additional cost at the time of instruction.
