The Home Condition Survey from SAVA is directly comparable to the RICS Homebuyers Report, especially as the format of this is changing to remove the valuation element.
All HCS surveyors hold either the Diploma in Home Inspection, DipHi, or the Diploma in Residential Surveying (and Valuation), DipRSurv, and undergo extensive training before they are allowed to carry out the HCS.
The HCS is written in jargon free English with an easy to understand 1, 2, 3 condition rating as you can see below. Another thing I really like about the HCS is the number of photographs that the report contains as this makes it much easier to understand what issues the surveyor has identified and why.
Don't be caught out when buying your next home.
