A pre-purchase survey is an essential part of the property-buying process. It provides you with the information you need to decide whether to proceed with purchasing a house or flat. Once we have completed the inspection and prepared the report, we will guide you through the steps we have carried out to assess the building’s structure, so you understand how we reached our conclusion about the property and to alleviate any of your concerns.

Building Surveys – Home Survey Level 3

A Level 3 Building Survey supplies an exhaustive breakdown of the condition of the property. It is also known as a full structural survey and can be either a RICS template or tailored to the client’s needs. Photographs or diagrams may be included in the report along with the results of tests for elements such as damp. The inspection assesses the structural soundness of the whole building, including the basement and attic (if applicable) as well as any outbuildings. This is a non-destructive survey; thus floorboards cannot be removed but carpets can be raised and furniture can be shifted to identify flaws. Drones and cameras mounted on telescopic poles can be used if areas are hard to access and potentially contain defects. The survey lists any repair work that needs to be done and the associated cost estimates. For older properties, large homes, dilapidated houses, with unusual materials or designs, we strongly suggest that a Building Survey is carried out.

Homebuyer Survey

A more succinct report, the Homebuyer Survey (also known as a homebuyer report or Level 2 survey), includes a traffic light system highlighting the defects which require urgent attention at the property. It also indicates areas that will need work, but where repairs can be undertaken over the medium term. The report also covers any hazardous materials which have been identified in the building or grounds.

We recommend the Homebuyer Survey for modern properties, which are of a standard type of construction. For modern properties which have had major works, or where a sizeable extension has been added, we might recommend a Building Survey instead. Our chartered surveyors will be able to advise you as to which survey is more suitable for your property when you speak with us.

How much should building surveyors cost for your property?

When you set out in the house buying process, you want to make sure you get the best financial outcome possible. This applies in every stage of the process, and leads to some house buyers wondering “How much should a structural survey cost?”

The average structural survey costs approximately £800. However, there are many different factors affecting this figure. One of the most prominent factors is the size of the property, as surveying and analysing a large property takes building surveyors much longer than completing a smaller house survey.

Furthermore, age has a significant effect. Building surveys generally cost more on older properties due to the complexities in their construction.

Contact the Oakfield Chartered Surveyors team for quotes if you’re interested in establishing the value of a property. This is a simple and upfront way of understanding the cost of the buildings survey services you need.
