The benefits of Digital Home Survey far outweigh those of a traditional homebuyer survey:
Since launch in 2004 Express Surveyors has established a UK-wide reputation for the highest standards of professionalism and quality. A trusted team of risk-averse professionals rely on local property relationships and a depth of knowledge built up over decades to ensure the integrity of reporting and risk management.
The first step is to answer our short online questionnaire. If the property is suitable for a Digital Home Survey, you can proceed online and purchase the survey directly. Once the survey has been purchased, we'll contact the seller of the property you are purchasing within 24 hours and arrange a date to visit the property.
Once the survey has been booked for a convenient time, the surveyor will ring you to discuss any queries or burning questions you may have. Our expert RICS surveyors will inspect the property as quickly as possible and will keep you informed throughout the process.
You should receive a report within 48 hours of survey completion. The surveyor will contact you again, to address any issues or concerns. If any defects or issues are uncovered during the survey, you will be able to find tradespeople to cost any repairs directly from within the digital report.

What’s the difference between a Digital Home Survey and a RICS Home Survey Level 2 (previously known as Homebuyer report)?
In the past, the only way to find out about your new property was to have a RICS Home Survey Level 2 (Homebuyer report). However, times have changed, and technology has enabled us to develop a new digital type of report, still produced by the same RICS qualified surveyors, but much faster. Gone are the days where the surveyor had to go back to their office and type up a report before posting it to you. Now you can expect a Digital Home Survey to be sent straight to your smart device in a far quicker and user-friendly fashion.
When considering which survey is right for you, not only do you have to consider how quickly you want to receive the survey, but also how much support you can expect along the way. Digital Home Survey is a visual report, which records images of the inspected areas and any potential issues. If you choose to act on any of the report's findings, you can send the images to your conveyancer or tradesperson of choice directly from the Digital Home Survey report, without having to wait for lengthy call out times, saving even more of your time!
On average, each year we help over 150,000 home buyers like you with surveys and valuations.
