The Royal Institute for Chartered Surveyors (RICS) has launched a consultation for a new mandatory RICS Home Survey Standard.
The aim is to clear up confusion over the different surveys on offer and technical language will be clarified providing confidence to those buying or selling a home.
The RICS will also provide guides and documents later this year to aid the home buying and selling process, therefore it's crucial to get feedback from both consumer and industry role players.
The consultation closes 29 July 2019.

Proposed changes will better protect buyers, and sellers, by making sure they fully understand the importance and benefits of commissioning a home survey before purchasing a property as the process and language is clarified, it will also standardise offerings.
