Level 3 Home Survey in Chester

HOME SURVEY LEVEL 3 (Building Survey)

Contact us to obtain a fee quotation for a Level 3 Home Survey formerly known as a Building Survey in Chester

This is a more comprehensive report suitable for properties that are more than 80 years old or have been substantially altered / extended.

If you are dealing with a large, older, or rundown property, or a building that has undergone significant alterations, this report is the appropriate choice. It is more costly than other RICS reports because it provides comprehensive information about the structure and materials of the property. This service involves a thorough visual examination of the building, its services, and grounds, and it is more extensive than a Level 2 survey. Concealed areas that are typically accessible or utilised by occupants, such as roof spaces, basements, and cellars, will be inspected if it is safe to do so.

Although the services are not tested, they are observed in normal operation, which means they are switched on or off and/or operated where the occupant 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 any defects or issues.
The survey report will include the following:


  • a description of the identifiable risk of potential or hidden defects in areas not inspected

  • the most probable cause(s) of the defects based on the inspection

  • outlines the likely scope of any necessary remedial work and explains the likely consequences of not repairing the defects.
