RICS Building Survey

The RICS Building Survey is the most detailed report we provide to residential clients. The report comprises a full detailed inspection of the exterior and interior elements of the property.

We will identify the form of construction and identify any defects present and provide suggested repairs along with cost estimates for the suggested repairs.

The RICS Building Survey is submitted as an RICS approved and licensed document which incorporates the RICS Home Survey traffic light system to assist you identifying where defects or concerns may exist.

All of our Residential Surveys are carried out by qualified Chartered Building Surveyors.

An RICS Building Survey is most appropriate for:

  • Large properties or properties that may have been extended or undergone structural alterations.
  • Older properties.
  • Listed Buildings.
  • Properties that are considered to be of “Non Traditional Construction”.

Please feel free to contact a member of the team if you have any questions about which survey is the most appropriate.

If you would like a quote for a survey, please complete the contact sheet at the bottom of the page and we will call you back.

I recently used Peacock Stevens when looking to purchase a new house. In the end I instructed two surveys as the depth and quality of the report on the first property identified defects that would have meant significant costs to me, meaning I did not proceed.

I am pleased that my second choice was defect free and the quality and detail in the survey was again of the highest standard.

Mrs Frances Hilton

Peacock Stevens recently carried out an RICS Building Survey for me on a house I was looking to purchase. The report was thorough and detailed but was also easy to understand. We are very happy in our new home.

Mr S Davenport

An excellent and comprehensive report and we will take heed of its findings. We are proceeding with the purchase and hopefully all will go according to plan. Thank you and with best wishes
