Home Survey Level 3

A level three survey is more thorough and detailed than then others and will address matters such as the materials used for each part of the building, defects and remedial options as well as issues related to the future maintenance of the property. Concealed areas normally opened or used by the occupiers are inspected if it is safe to do so.
Although services are not tested, they are observed in normal operation. This level of service is for clients who are seeking a professional opinion based on a detailed assessment of the property.
