RICS Home Survey Level 3

Most In Depth

  • Most detailed inspection available
  • Better for older properties
  • Will uncover hidden structural defects
  • Ideal if you plan significant building works
  • For properties with major previous building works

Most expensive and detailed survey and is essential for larger, older or unusual properties, as well as if you’re planning renovation works. Unlike with the other survey types, the surveyor will get into the attic and look between floors (if possible), as well as above ceilings to find any hidden issues.
