Home Buyer Surveys

Home Buyer Surveys


Buying a home is likely to be the most expensive purchase you make. Choosing a Vospers home survey will provide you with vital knowledge about the true condition of the property. This information can be used to negotiate on the price and to enable you to make an informed decision about whether to proceed with the purchase.

Our home surveys

We offer two main types of survey. These are:

Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Homebuyer Report
Choose this report if the flat, bungalow or house you wish to buy is conventional, built from common building materials and appears to be in reasonable condition.

Vospers Building Survey
The Building Survey gives more detailed information about the structure and fabric of the property than a Homebuyer Report. The Building Survey was formerly called a structural survey by the RICS.  (learn more here)

Compare the Homebuyer Report with the Vospers’ Building Survey

The reports we produce are reliable and cost effective and carry the full weight of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, which is the UK’s most respected authority on surveying.
A mortgage lender’s valuation report is not a survey – it simply informs the lender whether the property is reasonable security for your loan.

This table will help you to choose the most appropriate survey, but if you have any particular requirements, remember to discuss them with Vospers before the inspection of the property.
We are able to provide you with extra services, under separate contracts if required.

Snagging List Survey
If you are buying a new property we offer our Snagging List Survey which identifies problems that the developer or builder should rectify for you.
