One of the most common choices for a standard, paper based house survey is a Home Survey Level 2 (often referred to as a “homebuyer report”). This type of survey is ideal when buying a conventional house, flat or bungalow, which is built from common building materials and is in reasonable condition, and you would like information and advice on construction, condition and repairs. However, unlike the Digital Home Survey, the level 2 survey report is not presented in a digital format and will not allow you to contact contractors from the report itself.
The level 2 survey report uses a clear ‘traffic light’ ratings system to describe the condition rating of the property’s main features (such as glazing, roof, electrics, exterior..).
The Home Survey Level 2 provides an account of the property’s condition and highlights significant problems with straightforward ratings. Take a look at a dummy report to explore all the features and functionalities.

With these credentials, you know you are in safe hands!
We understand that when you are buying a new home you want to make every penny count. It might be tempting to assume that a simple mortgage valuation will provide you with the reassurance you need regarding the condition of the property and future maintenance liabilities, but that’s not what it is intended for and you could be faced with significant unplanned repair costs. Buying a home can be one of the biggest financial commitments you are likely to make so it is important to know as much as you can about the property you are thinking of purchasing.
The first step is to answer our short online questionnaire. If the property is suitable for a Home survey level 2, you can proceed online and purchase the survey directly. Once the survey has been purchased, we'll contact the seller of the property you are purchasing within 24 hours and arrange a date to visit the property.
Once the survey has been booked for a convenient time, just sit tight. Our expert RICS surveyors will inspect the property as quickly as possible and will keep you informed throughout the process.
You should receive the paper report within 4 working days of survey completion through the post. If any defects or issues are uncovered during the survey, you can choose to reflect the cost of the repairs in the property price .
