Level 1 RICS Condition Report

Jigsaw Surveyors > Level 1 RICS Condition Report

This level of survey is for those seeking a professional and objective report on the condition of the property. This still involves a fairly detailed inspection but the report content is less detailed than levels two and three.

The report objectively describes the condition of the building, its services and the grounds. It highlights relevant legal issues and any obvious risks to the building, people or grounds. The report is succinct and provides an assessment of the relative importance of the defects and problems. Where the surveyor is unable to reach a conclusion with reasonable confidence, a recommendation for further investigation will be made.

A survey level one report does not include advice on repairs or ongoing maintenance and this, combined with the less extensive inspection, usually means it is better suited to conventionally built, modern dwellings in satisfactory condition. It will not suit older or complex properties or those in a neglected condition.

This level of report does not include a valuation assessment or a re-instatement figure for insurance purposes.

In summary, Level 1 includes:

✔ visual inspection

✔ description of the building condition

✔ description of building services and the grounds

✔ relevant legal issues and obvious risks

✔ assessment of relative importance of defects/problems

✔ recommendation for further investigation if needed


and does not include:

✖ test of building fabric or services

✖ advice on repairs or ongoing maintenance

✖ valuation assessment or a reinstatement figure
