Our Homebuyer survey focuses on the fixtures of a property. Included is a visual inspection, we check fixtures are in reasonable condition and we highlight any issues that might warrant further investigation to help you avoid unexpected repair costs.

Why Do You Need a Brightchecker Homebuyer Report?

Monitor Icon

Properties are sold as caveat emptor in other words the buyer alone is responsible for checking the quality and suitability of a home before a purchase is made.

Monitor Icon

Most popular property website listings have a disclaimer that the real estate agent has not tested any facilities, equipment or services. This includes the property's condition and all the features.

Monitor Icon

Fixtures like taps, showers, cupboards and doors aren't always obvious if they contain faults. They can be embarrassing to check yourself or you forget. These unexpected costs mount up.

Traditional surveys in the UK such as a home buyers survey do not check the suitable operation or function of fixtures in a property as it isn't their primary focus. It is primarily a structural survey focused on major defects that affect the asking price. 

How it Works

You order a property check. We collect the details about the property and estate agent.

We arrange access to the property directly with the estate agent and occupier. Including picking up the keys.

Our Brightchecker checks the property and compiles the report using our app. 

You receive the report either the same day or within 24 hours of the check being done after our quality checks.

Example Finds From Our Comprehensive Report...

As an alternative to a RICs condition report or a homebuyers survey from the residential property surveyors association. You can get a detailed report from Brightchecker.

Picture of Damaged Electrical Socket


We plug in socket testers to check for wiring and function issues with accessible sockets around the property. We check for damage to the housing too. Electrical work can amount to major works in a property. 

Picture of Sink With One Faulty Tap


We interact with the fixtures of the property and log any issues we may find. Taps, toilets and showers are checked to unearth faults which are not visible. This becomes an urgent defect if you don't have a working toilet.

Internal Cracks and Damp

Cracks in a property can indicate a larger issue such as subsidence. We pick up signs of damp which could indicate issues with ventilation. 

Picture of Missing Guttering

Roof and Rainwater

We check for missing or broken tiles, guttering, downpipes, fascias and soffits which can require costly repair work if left alone to the elements.

Perimeter and Garden

We check the perimeter of the property and highlight any access or security issues for people and pets. We can find possible health hazards too.

External Cracks

Cracks on a property elevation can indicate major faults such as subsidence. External issues can affect the internal areas of the property too causing structural problems. Although we do not give details advice, if we see it we will photograph it in high definition.

Issues Caused By Pets

Signs of Illegal Activity
