RICS Home Surveys Licences

A licence that allows you to deliver RICS Home Survey reports

You need this licence to produce an RICS Home Survey Report Level 1, 2 or 3.

Once you have your licence number, you will be able to produce RICS regulated reports using RICS ProForms or from chosen organisations who are permitted to sell RICS templates.

Respected by buyers, sellers and property professionals, RICS home survey reports are used on a range of homes, from brand new apartments to older houses. A licence helps you stay prepared and offer your customers the right survey for their needs.
