Home Survey level 3 (Building survey report)
putting the client first
A Home Survey level 3 (Building survey report) (previously referred to as a “structural survey”) is our most comprehensive type of survey and is suitable for all types of buildings and is particularly relevant for older individual properties, those which have been significantly altered and those in very need of renovation.
The Home Survey level 3 (Building survey report) includes:
- A detailed description of the construction and design of each element
- A detailed comment upon each defect, the cause and repair advice
- Recommendations for maintenance and advice on insulation and security
- The report does not include a market valuation or reinstatement cost
The Home Survey level 3 (Building survey report) will provide you with a comprehensive report on defects affecting the property which need to be addressed and advice on how to deal with them or recommend further investigation where appropriate. The consequences of not dealing with repair will be highlighted and maintenance and life span of each element will also be commented upon. Our Home Survey level 3 (Building survey report) is detailed and includes many photographs to illustrate defects.
The survey will consist of a detailed inspection of the property. Concealed areas which are accessible will be inspected if safe, services observed in normal operation and simple tests carried out e.g. taps turned on. The edges of carpets will be lifted and small items of furniture moved where the vendor gives permission. Windows and doors will be tested for operation.
