In providing consumers with a quality service

Against the very uncertain backdrop created by the spread of the Covid-19 virus, The RPSA has moved forward with contingency arrangements to continue providing a service to all our clients.

Although we will endeavour to maintain working from our office to the extent that is possible, the nature of our business allows all team members to work from home in need. We will institute home working for our team members as appropriate to their individual circumstances. The well being of our people is paramount to us and should any of our team members contract the virus they will of course be asked to take whatever time is necessary to recover fully. It is therefore possible that the Associate who usually takes care of you may be unavailable for a period of time, and should that be the case we will provide support from other team members.

We will endeavour to answer telephone calls as normal, but you may not be able to access your usual team member at first point of contact. Should this be the case we will take a message and arrange for you to be called back the same day. We seek your patience and forbearance in these difficult times, but please be assured we will do all that we can to provide you with a service that is ‘business as usual’.

The Residential Property Surveyors Association (RPSA) is a representative body for independent specialist residential surveyors who are the industry's leading specialists in reporting on the condition of residential properties on behalf of home buyers. The RPSA is dedicated to helping its members deliver a range of high quality survey products, helping consumers in England and Wales at the time they are making one of the biggest investments of their lives.

Recommended by the Government in their new How to Buy Guide published by the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government in May 2019.

The Home Condition Survey (HCS) is a survey that is suitable for all property types as it includes a full inspection and a comprehensive report.

A Building Survey (often referred to as a Full or Structural Survey) is the highest level of non-invasive survey that surveyors usually carry out during the home-buying process. It is suitable for all properties but is often most applicable for older or more unusual properties, or properties where problems are suspected.
