Purchase your new home with confidence

Purchasing a new-build property? A RICS Home Survey - Level 1 ensures you’re equipped with the information you need to reach completion with peace of mind.

A Level 1 survey is straightforward and easy to digest - furnishing you with a factual assessment of your potential property’s condition, and underlining any problem areas that may require your attention.

When to choose a RICS Home Survey - Level 1

A RICS Home Survey - Level 1 is perfect for new-build home, flat, or bungalow purchases.

If you’re looking at an older property, a property that’s been altered, or a property in need of repairs, we’d recommend a RICS Level 2 or RICS Level 3 survey.
