Building Survey - RICS Home Survey Level 3

This level of service is for clients who are seeking a professional opinion based on a detailed assessment of the property and is the most comprehensive report available. It is significantly more detailed than a level 1 or 2 survey.

what is it?

The Building Survey – RICS Home Survey Level 3 includes:
  • A detailed inspection of the building, its services and the grounds and is more extensive than a survey level 2
  • Concealed areas normally opened or used by the occupiers are inspected if it is safe to do so
  • Services are observed in normal operation
  • The report provides details of type of construction, materials used, the condition of the property, highlights defects/problems identified, proposes the most probable cause(s) of the defects, recommends any appropriate remedial work and an indication of likely costs
  • This service does not include a market valuation. A valuation can be added as a standalone report. Please see our Valuation page
Oval Surveyors aim to:
  • Help you make a reasoned and informed decision when purchasing the property, or when planning for repairs, maintenance or upgrading the property
  • Provide detailed advice on condition
  • Describe the identifiable risk of potential or hidden defects
  • Propose the most probable cause(s) of the defects based on the inspection
  • Where practicable and agreed, provide an estimate of costs and likely timescale for identified repairs and necessary work.
