Southdown Surveyors are Chartered Surveyors specialising in RICS Level 3 Home Surveys. If you are dealing with a property that is large, old, run-down, unusual, altered or if you are planning major works, then this survey is ideal. It costs more than other RICS reports, but it provides a far greater level of detail regarding the structure and fabric of the property. If the survey identifies costly-to-repair defects you may be able to save money by negotiating with the vendor.

RICS Level 3 Home Survey Lewes - What does it include?

  • Thorough inspection and detailed report on a wider range of issues
  • Description of visible defects and potential problems caused by hidden flaws
  • Advice for your legal advisers and details of serious risks and dangerous conditions 
  • Outline of repair options and the likely consequences of inactivity

The following services can be added to your RICS Building Survey. Dependent upon the individual merits of the property, an additional charge may be applicable: 

  • Valuation
  • Cost guidelines, feasibility studies, scaled floor plans and maintenance schedules
  • Reinstatement cost assessment 
  • Estimated costs of repairs 
  • The use of a ‘cherry-picker’ to allow closer access to roof areas to provide a more comprehensive assessment
