RICS Level 2 Survey
(formerly called a 'Homebuyers Report')
Choose this report if you need more extensive information whilst buying or selling a conventional house or flat, built from common building materials and in reasonable condition. The focus is on assessing the general condition of the main elements of a property. This intermediate level of service includes a more extensive visual inspection of the building, its services and grounds, but does not test any services. 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). The report objectively describes the condition of the different elements and provides an assessment of the relative importance of the defects/problems.
Please note: a valuation can be added to a Level 2 survey for an additional fee.
RICS Level 3 Survey
(formerly called a 'Building Survey' or 'Structural Survey')
This is the most detailed report available and is recommended if the property is particularly large, unique, listed, or in a poor state of repair.This 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 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.
Please note: a valuation can be added to a Level 3 survey for an additional fee.
Choose this report to get a Market Value of a home and also if you are looking to repay a Help to Buy Loan. Valuations are conducted by an RICS registered valuer to Red Book standards - the professional guidelines that are the gold standard for valuation. Valuations include a site visit alongside considerable desktop research, the combined evidence of the two supporting a market value. The property's insurance reinstatement value is also included.
Please note: a valuation does not include potentially costly property defects if they are deemed not to affect the property's Market Value. If you have specific concerns about the condition of the property then a Level 2 Survey may be more appropriate.
