Our Services

RICS Home Surveys

We specialise in RICS Home Surveys - it's what we do.

Building surveys assess the condition of your home & help identify any structural issues, defects, or potential problems with the building, providing valuable information for informed decision making, negotiation and planned maintenance, repairs or improvements.

They are categorized into RICS Level 2 (Homebuyer) and RICS Level 3 (Building)  surveys - please scroll down for a handy schedule showing the differences.......

Cost Planning

We develop detailed cost plans and compare like for like prices to ensure you are clear about the cost of repairs or renovations.

Homebuyer Survey RICS

RICS Level 2

The HomeBuyer Survey (Level 2) is a visual inspection of the property to evaluate the overall condition of the building and highlight any obvious defects.

Phill, Stockport
June 2024

We found Phonica extremely professional and would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to get a deeper understanding of their potential new home, and reduce the risk of costly issues in the future.
It was very clear that the surveyor had an intricate knowledge of buildings, and flagged a number of issues we would never have picked up on our own. The survey was extremely thorough, with potential risks clearly signposted and practical advice on how to improve the property set out in an easy to read report. We were expecting this latter part, and we’ll certainly be acting upon this advice to improve our new home.
Where we required further clarification, the Phonica surveyor was more than happy to discuss points raised after he issued the report at no extra cost.
Highly recommend!
