Residential Surveys are changing in June 2020 and going forward all surveys will need to be benchmarked against three levels (1,2,3). This means its less important what your survey is called and more important you know what the benchmarked level is i.e roughly talking a condition survey is a level 1 a homebuyers is level 2 and a building survey is level 3 closer to the time we will be populating pages for Level 1 – 3 Home Survey Standard surveys.
Home Heroes can carry out specific defect surveys these can involve complex building pathology including Damp surveys particularly in older properties have had modern methods of construction like portland cement and plastics installed.

As progressive and technological driven Building Surveyors we really appreciate the benefits a drone can bring to building surveys, defect analysis and grounds inspection and that is why we have partnered up with a CAA Approved Commercial UAV Pilot who holds comprehensive public liability insurance for the use of the drone. Everything needed to legally operate the drone for commercial applications, because we only do things right.
ome Heroes surveyors have detailed knowledge and experience of the law governing the complex minefield of dilapidations.
It is always a prudent decision to appoint a building surveyor before committing to, initiating a break clause in, or reaching the end of a lease. Otherwise, you may find yourself unprotected, and liable for the building’s eventual repair and reinstatement works.
From items of disrepair to breaches of covenant, our dilapidations surveyors are perfectly suited to assist. We provide both landlords and tenants with professional advice concerning their potential liability for the repair and reinstatement of leasehold property.
Home Survey Standards 2020
In late 2019, RICS launced the Home Survey Standard 2020 Professional Statement based on the residential survey market, professional statements are mandatory requirements for all RICS Professionals and that includes all at Home Heroes Limited.
They issue minium standards for survey products regardless of product name going forward you will need to benchmark them against the new Survey Standard
It is our intention to begin offering this benchmarking as soon as the market allow us to, and work is on going with this site to add benchmarking to all pages
