RICS Home surveys

Choosing the right survey will help highlight any serious problems or specific risks before committing to the process of buying or selling a property.

A home is the most expensive purchase or sale most people ever make. As an owner or buyer, you will benefit from expert advice on the condition of your property – whether you plan to live in it, rent it out or sell it. Owning a home is not without risk. Getting a survey from an RICS member will help to highlight any problems that could lead to expensive surprises later on.




A survey differs from a mortgage valuation report. The mortgage valuation will give your mortgage lender assurance for its loan. It will not provide an assessment of the condition of the property, or advice about repairs and maintenance.

Be prepared with an RICS Home Survey. Having a survey conducted by a Westview member will give you:

  • peace of mind that you know the property and the risks it may carry
  • confidence that you can make an offer that reflects the true circumstances of the property (e.g. how an owner maintains its condition or how a vendor protects the sale)
  • reassurance that your surveyor is delivering a high-quality, reliable and cost-effective service based on RICS standards of practice
  • a clear understanding of your property thanks to a report written in plain English with simple colour-coding to illustrate the surveyor's findings.



By commissioning an RICS Home Survey, you can feel assured that the service you receive is impartial and reliable.
