RICS Homebuyers

Why have a RICS Homebuyer Survey?

The RICS Homebuyer Report (HBR) is most suitable for conventional properties.

A home purchase is likely to be one of the most expensive acquisitions you ever make. You will need to know as much as you can about the property before you commit to purchase. Having a survey is essential and may save you thousands of pounds in costly repairs. It is therefore important you have a survey before your purchase than rely on the valuation carried out by the lender alone.
