Frequently Asked Questions

It depends on the complexity of your property.

Most RICS surveys are completed in 2-24 hours, with larger or more complex properties potentially requiring longer.

Talk to your chosen surveyor directly to confirm the expected timeframe for both the inspection and the report delivery.

Buying a home:

Get a survey after your offer is accepted: This demonstrates your seriousness and streamlines the process.

Selling your home:

Consider a pre-sale survey: Identify potential issues that could delay or even stall your sale.

Concerned about repairs?

Invest in a Level 2 survey: Gain valuable insights and plan for necessary repairs before they escalate.

  • The responsibility of paying for the survey depends on the location:
    • England, Wales, & Northern Ireland: Buyer pays. However, sellers can also choose to get one.
    • Scotland: Seller is required to provide a Home Report for potential buyers to view.

The time between your survey and buying the house varies based on the findings.

If there are no major issues: the process can continue smoothly as planned.

If significant problems are discovered, you might consider:

  • Negotiating a lower price with the seller.
  • Requesting repairs from the seller before completing the purchase.
  • Withdrawing from the sale altogether.

These steps may involve additional inspections from other specialists, which can extend the timeline.

In England, Wales and Northern Ireland, surveys are optional, but highly recommended. They can give buyers confidence and prevent unforeseen problems later.

In Scotland, getting a survey is a must before you can even list your property.
