Your full building survey, now known as RICS Home Survey Level 3.

Properties that are older, larger, unusual or run-down come with different considerations. That’s not to say you shouldn’t embrace their charm and character, but it does mean that a more detailed survey is exactly what you need.

Previously known as the full building survey, the RICS Home Survey Level 3 is a thorough report which focuses on any minor or significant defects, and any urgent repairs that might be required.

Invest in your future, not in nasty surprises.

A survey that    speaks for itself.

The results of your RICS Home Survey Level 3 are easy to understand. They’re colour coded for complete convenience, and will help you to understand any defects found in the property.
Condition Rating 1
The property has no repairs currently needed.
Condition Rating 2
The survey shows that there are some defects that need addressing, but are not considered to be serious or urgent.
Condition Rating 3
Here, there may be defects which are serious and/or need to be repaired, replaced or investigated urgently.

Breaking your survey results down.

Your surveyor will break down the property into individual elements. From there, every element will have its own condition rating with accompanying advisory warnings.

If an element receives a condition rating of 2 or 3, your surveyor will advise you on what you’ll need to do to remedy the issue or if any further investigation is required.

Whatever the outcome, you’ll have everything expertly explained before you commit to your purchase.

What does a full survey include 2

  • Advice for your legal advisers and details of serious risks and dangerous conditions
