Services we offer

RICS Level 2 Survey (HomeBuyer Survey)

This is a visual inspection of the property to evaluate the overall condition of the building and highlight defects such as dampness or structural movement. This type of survey is usually recommended for properties which were built post-1900 and appear to be in a reasonable condition as far as you can see. You can choose to upgrade this to a RICS Level 2 Survey and Valuation if you require a RICS qualified valuation to verify whether you are paying a reasonable price compared with the current market.

RICS Level 3 Survey (Building Survey)

The Level 3 Survey is the most detailed level of RICS Home Surveys available. This level of survey is usually recommended for properties which have been significantly altered/extended, are in a poor condition as far as you can see or where built before 1900. There is also the option to add a qualified market valuation for an additional cost. If you would like further details of what is included, please click on the description below.

What people say

The service from Tom was fantastic. He was very responsive from the initial query, got the survey booked in quickly and had a very thorough and detailed report through in no time. Tom even made time to discuss questions I had following the report. Very happy with the service and will definitely be coming back for any future surveys.

James Su

Excellent service. The team respond to emails very quickly and are extremely helpful. We are first time buyers and really benefited from the helpful advice given to us. The survey was completed within a week of the booking and the results were published the day after the survey was completed. I would highly recommend this service.

Chris Tomkins

JRV Surveys carried out a RICS level 2 survey on a property than I'm purchasing. The communications from them has been brilliant, the report was clear, easy to read and understand and contained invaluable information. Lots of photographs were supplied and the turnaround time of the report following the survey was super quick. All for a very competitive price. Highly recommend.

Alan Myler

I originally used Tom and his company 2 years ago for our first property and the service he provides is outstanding - from the first communication, to doing the survey and having the very speedy response with the report the same day! We have gone back to Tom for our 2nd survey on another property and again, the professionalism is next to none. Tom, you are great. Thank you so much for everything you do from start to finish. 👍🏻

Chelsea Dargan

I was looking for quotes for a Level 2 RICS survey and was directed to JRV via the online comparison tool. The quoted cost was incredibly competitive, and after talking with Tom to discuss the quote was left with no doubt there would do a great an through job on our behalf. Communication was really easy, and the report was with us in the same day, survey AM, report PM. Report and survey itself were very thorough along with heaps of photos of each point in the report and more. I would recommend to anyone after a quick, efficient and competent company to undertake a survey.

Simon Tweddle

Tom was excellent, from the moment I first enquired on the level 2 survey to producing the document the same day as he viewed the property. He gave plenty of feedback and photos which is great so I know what bits needs doing on the house. He was so efficient and emailed me after the survey to make sure I was happy and understood everything he had written in the report! I would 1000% recommend Tom to all my friends/family/colleagues who need a survey doing!.

Jessica Dootson

Very thorough survey and Tom has been on hand to answer ongoing questions throughout the sale process, which I have really appreciated. Thank you!

Rebecca DL

I literally can not recommend Tom enough. Not only did I get my report the same day as them going to do the survey. He also went above and beyond and helped with my million and one questions I needed help with afterwards. Such a helpful friendly guy and so happy with the outstanding service they gave. A* company.

Danielle Branch

My RICS HomeBuyer report was by far the smoothest and easiest part of purchasing property; Tom from JRV was prompt, polite and very helpful, while the price was easily the best I found in the Manchester area. I would highly recommend JRV.

Bethany Fulton

Tom was efficient, helpful and incredibly responsive to my barrage of questions. He gave an incredibly competitive quote, completed the survey and the report on the same day and was incredibly quick to clarify on any follow up points I had. He could not have been more helpful and I would recommend him highly. Thanks very much Tom.

Lara Drake

Excellent service all round. Very competitive quote, good communications, house was surveyed within a few days and the House Buyers Report issued same day. Tom provided useful advice outlining repairs required. Faultless service, thoroughly recommended.
