RICS Building Survey

You should choose an RICS Building Survey if you’re dealing with a large, older or run-down property, if the building has been significantly altered or if you are planning major renovation works. This is a more in-depth report and includes details of the structure and fabric of the property.

The report includes:

  • A thorough inspection and detailed report on a wider range of issues;
  • A description of visible defects and potential problems caused by hidden flaws;
  • An outline of repair options and the likely consequences of inactivity, and
  • Advice for your legal advisors and details of serious risks and dangerous conditions.

An RICS Building Survey does not include a valuation. Estimated costs of repairs may be included as an option.

If you’re looking to book a home survey, simply complete the form below, providing full property details, and obtain a quote very quickly. If you decide to go ahead and book, we will also conduct the survey on a date and time convenient to you.

By providing us with your email address, you will enable you to register with our online booking system – by doing so, you will be able to log-in to your surveys account at any time to look at your quote(s), monitor the progress of your report(s), communicate with our Client Services Hub, and retrieve your final report(s) via your account.

Why do I need a home survey?

If you’re considering purchasing a new property, at Watsons we always recommend commissioning your own independent home survey, which will provide you with a clear understanding of the property’s condition. By having a home survey completed, you’re essentially avoiding any additional costs, stress and hassle further down the line, as the survey can help you avoid surprise additional costs for repairs.
Take a look at the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) video below, on the importance of getting a home survey.
