RICS Building Survey
RICS Home Survey Level 3 (RICS Building Survey) Survey Only
An RICS Building Survey is the most detailed type of survey.
Customers should choose an RICS Home Survey Level 3 (RICS Building Survey) if they’re dealing with a large, older or run-down property, if the building has been significantly altered or if they are planning major renovation works. This is a more in-depth report than a RICS Home Survey Level 2 (HomeBuyer Report) and includes details of the structure and fabric of the property. A Building Survey is the best option for obtaining a complete understanding of what you are buying, whatever the property age or type.
Our report includes:
- A thorough inspection and detailed report on a wider range of issues.
- A description of visible defects and potential problems caused by hidden flaws.
- An outline of repair options and the likely consequences of inactivity.
- Advice for their legal advisors and details of serious risks and dangerous conditions.
An RICS Building Survey does not include a valuation. A valuation of the property can be included at an additional cost.
Full Building Surveys provide guidance on build type, condition, structural integrity and maintenance issues. Our RICS Chartered Surveyors provide a comprehensive inspection of the property. Wherever possible, the Surveyor will look over the entire property, including the attic, cellar and any out-buildings.
Customers will receive a detailed report with advice on visible faults and potential hidden defects. In addition, it provides guidance on environmental hazards and highlights issues you should refer to specialists. The information will be in-depth and tailored to the property type and your needs.
RICS Home Survey Level 3 (RICS Building Survey) Survey and Valuation
Same Survey as detailed above. A Building Survey that includes a property valuation, might support the revision of an offer if the survey reveals a lower price than the mortgage lender’s valuation.
