Home Survey Standards Launched

By Nathan Foley | 6 March 2021 | Home Buyers Survey, Professional Standards

Finally, the RICS Home Survey Standards (HSS) have launched and with them, a whole new report format gone is the Home Buyers Reports, Home Condition Survey and the Building Surveys and Hello to Level 1, 2 & 3 reports. We first commented on this when they were announced and have been using HSS-compliant Surveys since 2020, our bespoke version is very different from the HSS Licenced versions which can be found on the RICS website but ours contain more information.

We have been using our own format which is the best of the old RICS format, Go Report and others in an easy to work with word-based template since April 2020 when we utilised the downtime in Lockdown to produce a truly beneficial product for our clients. This format has allowed us to add a generous Energy Matters section to all new reports at Level 3 to mirror the format used by the RICS. You can expect to see that report format used in all reports from Monday 8th March 2021.

To coincide with the launch of the Home Survey Standards we have taken the RICS-branded documentation and produced our own which can be viewed below:
