RICS Level-3 Surveys

RICS Level 3 Surveys in Liverpool: Enabling Informed Property Decisions

There can be a lot of uncertainty involved in the purchasing or selling of real estate. Thankfully, RICS Level 3 surveys can offer a much-needed source of clarification and assurance. Choosing the right survey will help highlight any serious problems and advise you of the specific risks before you commit to the process of buying or selling a property.

Understanding Level 3 RICS Surveys

This is a detailed, in-depth, Report based upon a comprehensive inspection of the fabric of the building.

The RICS Home Survey Level 3 is ideal for larger, older, or unique properties, or those in need of renovation. It offers a detailed inspection of the building, services, and grounds, including concealed areas like roof spaces and basements that are safe to access. The report explains the construction and materials used, as well as identifying flaws and suggesting causes and potential solutions. General recommendations and repair costs may also be provided, allowing buyers to make more informed decisions.

How Does It Differ From Level 1 & 2 Surveys?

Level 1 Survey: This survey is ideal for conventional houses, flats, or bungalows in reasonable condition. It offers a visual inspection with clear ‘traffic light’ ratings for different parts of the building, services, and grounds, indicating varying levels of attention required. The Level 1 survey additionally summarises risks and assesses the importance of defects.
For those seeking more extensive information on properties in reasonable condition, the Level 2 Survey is recommended. This survey involves a thorough visual inspection of the building, services, and grounds without tests. It covers concealed areas where it is safe to access and assesses the condition of different elements of a property, providing valuable information for potential buyers or sellers.

Why a RICS Level 3 Survey is Essential for Informed Property Decisions

The Level 3 Survey offers detailed information about the structure and fabric of the property. It includes a detailed visual inspection, descriptions of construction materials, and recommendations for repairs and maintenance. It also provides a professional opinion based on a detailed assessment, offering valuable insights into the property’s condition.

Key Elements Inspected

  • High-level areas: High level areas like chimneys and roofs are inspected with aerial cameras or drones ensuring all areas are viewed.
  • External fabric: The outer fabric of older properties (walls, joinery, windows) are likely to have been pushed to the limits over the years, and without the correct methods of maintenance, future works can be costly and cause an inconvenience.
  • Internal fabric: The internal inspection usually starts at the top, in the roof space, and then carries on down through the floors of the property. During this part of the inspection the roof structure is assessed internally, and inspections then follow of ceilings, walls, floors, bathrooms, kitchen, and services.
  • Grounds: The grounds are inspected with the same level of detail as the main property. This includes comments on garages and permanent outbuildings, walls, lawns, trees, and parking areas.
  • Other Services: Inspection of service systems within normal operation, including electrics, plumbing and heating.

Benefits of RICS Level 3 Building Surveys

  • Unveiling Potential Issues: Identifying defects and areas requiring repair before finalising property transactions.
  • Building Confidence: Providing detailed insights into the property’s condition, instilling confidence in investment decisions.
