CHASSEN HOUSE BUILDING SURVEYORS PROPERTY SURVEYS

Over 15 years of experience

We offer the two main types of building survey which are suitable for properties which are not new builds. The first is the RICS Home Survey level 2 and the second is the RICS Home Survey Level 3. Each of these surveys provides a different level of detail and investigation into the property.

 

Find out more about what the property surveys at Chassen House Building Surveyors entail and what you can come to expect.

RICS SURVEY LEVEL 2

The Home Survey Level 2 is generally the most appropriate survey for the majority of properties in the UK.

This level of survey spotlights urgent matters that have a substantial effect on the value of the property and need attending to or further investigation.

 

The survey includes a physical inspection of the property and a report based on the inspection that aims to give you professional advice to:

  • make an informed decision on whether to continue with the purchase

  • take into account any repairs or replacements the property needs, and

  • consider what further advice you should take before committing to purchasing the property.

RICS SURVEY LEVEL 3

The Level 3 Home Survey is the most comprehensive evaluation of a property’s condition and construction. It is recommended for older, less conventional homes or homes that have undergone significant building works or alterations.


This level of survey includes a thorough inspection of the property and a detailed report based on the inspection that aims to give you professional advice to:

  • help you make a reasoned and informed decision when purchasing the property, or when planning for repairs, maintenance or upgrades

  • provide detailed advice on condition

  • describe the identifiable risk of potential or hidden defects

  • propose the most probable cause(s) of any defects found and

  • where practicable and agreed, provide estimates of costs and likely timescales for any identified repairs and necessary work.

 

OUR SERVICE GUARANTEE
