What is a level 3 building survey and a level 2 homebuyer report?

A level 3 building survey, also known as a full structural survey, is the most detailed type of property survey. During a level 3 home survey, the surveyor will carry out an in-depth inspection of the inside and outside of the property, including a detailed investigation into areas that are normally inaccessible.

The surveyor will assess the condition of the building structure in detail, identifying defects, problem areas, and any urgent or ongoing maintenance issues. This includes assessing the condition of walls, floors, ceilings, roof structures, foundations, damp proofing, drainage systems, joinery, and more. Technical equipment such as damp meters, spirit levels, and measuring devices are used.

A level 2 homebuyer report, also known as a home condition survey, is less exhaustive than a full building survey. The surveyor will visually assess the overall condition of accessible parts of the building, identify issues that need repairing or replacing, and determine if there are any serious defects. The inspection still includes the inside and outside of the property, but without detailed technical analysis. The report provides advice on defects and problems but does not provide specific recommendations for repairs.

Property Inspections and Defect Reports

We understand the importance of conducting thorough property inspections to ensure a complete understanding of its condition. Our team of skilled surveyors conducts meticulous examinations of various elements, including the roof, walls, windows, doors, and internal structures. Through this process, we aim to identify any specific defects or vulnerabilities that could impact the property’s value or pose potential risks.

In addition to property inspections, Oakfield offers detailed specific defect reports. These reports provide in-depth analysis and advice on specific areas or elements of a building that require attention. Whether it’s concerns regarding structural integrity, dampness issues, or other potential defects, our defect reports provide valuable insights into the condition of the property.

Once a building survey report has been issued by us, the property owners can make informed decisions when it comes to buying or selling properties. Additionally, homeowners can use these reports as a roadmap for necessary repairs and maintenance to maintain the property’s value and ensure its long-term durability.
