(Formerly RICS Condition Report)

Choose this survey if you’re buying or selling a conventional house, flat or bungalow built from common building materials and in reasonable condition. This type of survey is not appropriate for buildings that are more than 5 years old, those of non standard construction or properties with known defects.

This service includes:

  •  an agreed Terms of Engagement clearly setting out our service level to you

  • a visual inspection that is less comprehensive than the RICS Home Survey – Level 2 and the RICS Home Survey – Level 3

  • clear ‘traffic light’ ratings of the condition of different parts of the building, services, and the grounds, showing problems that may require varying degrees of attention

  • a summary of risks to the building, people and grounds

  • an assessment of the relative importance of the defects and problems.


No tests of the building fabric or services are undertaken. An inspection of the drains is not included and the roof inspection includes a basic visual inspection of the roof space.


The RICS Home Survey – Level 1 does not include advice on repairs or ongoing maintenance and it does not include a valuation.
