RICS Condition Report This inspection and report is intended to provide a concise and easily understandable description by using a RED, GREEN, AMBER traffic light system to report on the condition of various aspects of the property giving an indication of any defects which are likely to require urgent attention. The report is essentially an overview of condition of the property but doesn't give detailed information, costs or remedial solutions. 

Level 2 - RICS HomeBuyers Survey


RICS HomeBuyer Report focuses on highlighting matters concerning the subject property which could negatively affect its value particularly in connection with building and structural defects.
