Home Survey Level 1

The level one survey is designed for clients (buyers, vendors and owners) seeking a professional and objective report on the condition of the property at an economic price. It includes a visual inspection that is less extensive than survey level two and survey level three. No tests of the building fabric or services are undertaken.
This level of survey is designed as a very basic overview of the condition of the property. It will not contain any detailed advice on repairs. This level of service is better suited to conventionally built, modern dwellings in satisfactory condition.
