Building Survey
From £918.00 inc. VAT

A RICS Level 3 Building Survey (formerly called a structural survey or full structural survey) is what we recommend if you’re dealing with a large, older (built before 1970) or run-down property.  Also if the building is unusual, of a non-standard construction  or has had significant alterations or you are planning any major renovation, reconstruction or  building works a Level 3 survey is generally beneficial.

Although it costs slightly more than the other RICS reports, this is not a wasted expense as the report gives detailed and valuable information about the structure and fabric of the property.

The RICS Building Survey uses the same traffic light ratings as the Condition and Level 2 Homebuyer Reports so that each area of the inspection can be easily understood and critical issues can be assessed for their impact. It also includes:


• A more thorough inspection and detailed report on a wider range of issues.

• A description of visible defects and potential problems caused by hidden flaws.

• An outline of repair options and the likely consequences of inactivity; and

• Advice for your legal advisers and details of serious risks and dangerous conditions.


The RICS Building Survey does not include a valuation or cost guidance as standard, but we are able to provide this as a separate service. If this is something you think you’ll benefit from please indicate on the form below or don’t hesitate to contact our client care team and they’ll be more than happy to help and advise.
