Level 3 Surveys

Designed for almost any domestic residential property in any condition. It is particularly geared towards period properties, including converted and listed buildings or those which have been considerably extended and altered over time.

Formerly known as a Building Survey or a Structural Survey, 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 Level 2 Survey.

A Level 3 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, the report will 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. 

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.
