Level 3 Survey - The Full Building Survey

Level 3 Survey – Building Survey {Location}

Level 3 Home Survey {Location} we offer an RICS Home Survey Standard Compliant Level 3 survey in our own proprietary format which fully complies with the standard, is easy to read and understand and has all the information at your fingertips.

This service is delivered in accordance with the Home survey standard (1st edition) RICS professional statement and is equivalent to Level 3

RICS surveys are essentially property health checks carried out by our building surveyors. They are detailed inspections that check a property’s condition and structure. If you are buying a home, you can choose between 3 levels of survey: the level 3 is the highest level of standard home surveys you could also book a level 2 homebuyer report {location} and a Level 1 Condition Survey {Location}

An RICS Building Survey {Location}  will highlight potential problems with a property. Getting a survey carried out can help you avoid the average £5,750 repair bill that homebuyers face once they have moved into their new home, too.

This level of service is for clients who are seeking a professional opinion based on a detailed assessment of the property. The service consists of a detailed visual inspection of the building, its services and the grounds and is more extensive than a survey level two. Concealed areas normally opened or used by the occupiers are inspected if it is safe to do so (typical examples include roof spaces, basements and cellars). 

Although the services are not tested, they are observed in normal operation – in other words, they are switched on or off and/or operated where the occupier has given permission and it is safe to do so.

The report objectively describes the form of construction and materials used for different parts of the property. It describes the condition and provides an assessment of the relative importance of the defects/problems. Additionally, it should:

  • describe the identifiable risk of potential or hidden defects in areas not inspected
  • propose the most probable cause(s) of the defects based on the inspection
  • outline the likely scope of any appropriate remedial work and explain the likely

consequences of non-repair

  • make general recommendations in respect of the priority and likely timescale for

necessary work and

Where an RICS member feels unable to reach the necessary conclusions with reasonable confidence, they should refer the matter for further investigations. However, at survey level three such referrals should be the exception rather than the rule. A survey level three report should aim to provide the client with all the information they need to make a decision.

A Building Survey is suitable for all types of building, but it is almost certain to be required if the building is very old, if it is a ‘Listed’ building, if it is in need of extensive repair, or if it is not constructed using traditional methods and materials.

We do not undertake anything but a Level 3 report on Pre-1919 buildings and in addition we strongly recommend them for any property up to the 1970’s

We use our own Level 3 template, which is professional, elegant and designed to be delivered electronically, has a working traffic light system and lots of additional information about your new property so why not get in touch today.
