If you are looking at buying a property, then homebuyer surveys are a good way to avoid any unexpected repair costs in the future. When buying a property, you need to think objectively, and money spent on a survey could help you save thousands by providing you with the knowledge and ammunition to either negotiate a price reduction or even walk away from the property.
With a home surveyor working by your side, you can ensure you are paying exactly what the property is worth.
Buying a home is an exciting time and it is easy to get swept up in the excitement and overlook property defects. Wouldn’t you like to rest easy knowing that your new home is safe to occupy for you and your family. A survey will provide you with impartial advice on the state of the property and allow you to make an informed choice.
We offer three types of property survey reports for you to choose from. Take a look below at our options:
A property valuation report is where a surveyor will assess your new property in order to obtain its real value. This will include an internal and external inspection of the property. The report will also look at factors like recent sales in the area and property market trends.Request more information >

RICS Condition Report (Level 1)
The RICS Condition Report (Level 1) is a basic condition report which assesses the overall condition of a property. It is typically used for properties that are in good condition or where only minor repairs are required.
The report will outline any major defects that are identified, as well as highlighting any areas of potential repair or maintenance that may be required. It is important to note that the report is only an assessment of the condition of the property at the time of inspection, and does not include any advice on repairs or maintenance that may be required in the future.
If you are considering purchasing a property, it is strongly recommended that you commission a RICS Condition Report (Level 1) to ensure that you are fully aware of the condition of the property before making an offer.
An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a document that provides information on a property’s energy efficiency. The certificate includes an energy performance rating, which is given on a scale of A to G, with A being the most efficient and G the least efficient.
The EPC must be carried out by a qualified assessor and will take into account the property’s age, type, size and construction. It will also consider the energy efficiency of the heating, lighting and insulation systems. The assessor will then produce a report which includes recommendations on how to improve the property’s energy efficiency.
RICS Homebuyers Survey (Level 2)
The RICS Homebuyers Survey (Level 2) is a detailed report aimed at helping homebuyers understand the condition of the property they are looking to purchase. The survey is carried out by a qualified professional who will assess the condition of the property and identify any potential problems. The report will also offer advice on how to deal with any problems that are found.

Do I need a Property Valuation Report, Home Buyer Reports or a Building Survey Report London
It’s important to choose the right type of survey when purchasing a property. A Property Valuation Report is the most basic form of survey, and is often used by mortgage lenders as part of their decision-making process. Home Buyer Reports are slightly more comprehensive, and provide more detailed information about the condition of the property. Building Survey Reports are the most comprehensive type of survey, and are often used by buyers who are planning to undertake major renovations or repairs.
When choosing a surveyor, it’s important to choose someone who is experienced and qualified. Look for a surveyor who is a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), and ask for references from previous clients. It’s also a good idea to get quotes from several different surveyors before making a decision.
If you’re not sure which type of report is right for you, it’s a good idea to speak to us to discuss your concern. Please feel free to Contact Us for further advice and reassurance.
London is the capital and most populous city of England and the United Kingdom. Standing on the River Thames in the southeast of the island of Great Britain, London has been a major settlement for two millennia.
It was founded by the Romans, who named it Londinium. London’s ancient core, the City of London, largely retains its 1.12-square-mile (2.9 km2) medieval boundaries. Since at least the 19th century, “London” has also referred to the metropolis around this core, historically split between Middlesex, Essex, Surrey, Kent and Hertfordshire, which today largely makes up Greater London, a region governed by the Mayor of London and the London Assembly.
London is a leading global city in the arts, commerce, education, entertainment, fashion, finance, healthcare, media, professional services, research and development, tourism and transport all contributing to its prominence. It is one of the world’s most populous cities as well as its cultural capital. It hosts four Universities within its boundaries. In 2012, London became the first city to have hosted the modern Summer Olympic Games three times.
London has a diverse range of people and cultures, and more than 300 languages are spoken in the region. Its estimated mid-2016 municipal population (corresponding to Greater London) was 8,787,892, the largest of any city in the European Union and accounting for 13.4% of the United Kingdom’s population. London’s urban area is the second most populous in the EU, after Paris, with 9,787,426 inhabitants at the 2011 census.
Crime rates in London
In 2021, the overall crime rate in London was 87 crimes per 1,000 inhabitants, with violent and sexual offenses accounting for around 27 out of every 1,000 residents. In comparison to the rest of the UK, London’s crime rate is 9% higher than the national average of 79.52 per 1,000 inhabitants.
Westminster is the most hazardous of London’s boroughs. Kensington and Chelsea are the second most hazardous, while Camden is the third most dangerous. Richmond upon Thames is the safest borough in London, followed by Harrow in second place and Bexley in third place.
