Congratulations! You think you have found the home of your dreams, and now you wish to check that it's a dream come true, and not a nightmare. This is what the RICS HomeBuyer Service was designed for, and it really is a must before you buy.
100 most common defects in Residential properties.
Buying a home is the biggest financial decision that anyone makes, and you need to know that you have a quality home, as quality is the best assurance of value.
Our RICS HomeBuyer Service combines an on-site inspection of the condition of the property and a Market Valuation, highlighting any problems that we find. We will tell you what needs to be fixed, and whether it's urgent, routine, or just right. We will also tell you the correct cost of reinstatement to tell your home insurer.
What price inclusive of VAT would you like to pay for our HomeBuyer Service?
The price we charge for our RICS HomeBuyer Service is set by you, and in so doing you will set the limit of our Professional Liability to you. Our Professional Liability is underwritten with Professional Indemnity Insurance of £1,000,000.
Our Limit of Professional Liability to you is calculated as half the square of the Fee Paid including VAT. So for example, a Fee Paid of £350 including VAT will have a Limited Professional Liability of £61,250 (i.e. 0.5 x (£350^2) = £61,250).
Before inspecting the condition of the property we need to know what you know about the property, and agree our Contract Letter and Terms of Engagement.
