Full Building Surveys

Our chartered surveyors specialise in delivering RICS level 3 building surveys tailor made for you.

Chartered Building Surveyors

Our Chartered Building Surveyors take a meticulous and highly detailed approach. We believe our customers should always be presented with complete information on a property or project.


RICS recommends full building surveys as “essential for larger or older properties or if you are planning major works”, but we
recommend a level 3 survey for any property being purchased to make sure everything is covered off.

RICS Building Survey

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) groups different types of building report as follows:

Condition Report (Level 1)

Often for party wall, this is a very basic outline of defects (only for part of the building).

Homebuyer's Report (Level 2)

A medium-standard report on a property’s condition.

Full Building Survey (Level 3)

The most comprehensive report on the defects and remedies applicable to the property you are looking to buy.
