RICS Home Surveys
Buying property either as a home, or as an investment, is probably one of the largest financial commitments any of us will ever make. Our RICS Level Two and Level Three Surveys can give you peace of mind in taking the next step towards purchasing your new property.
Our independent Level Two and Level Three property surveys (formally known as HomeBuyer and Building’s Surveys) provide you with relevant information about the property so that you can make an informed purchase with clear knowledge of the property’s condition and any future repairs that may be needed. Obtaining detailed information about the condition of a property before you purchase can also enable you to renegotiate the purchase price if costly works are required.
Julian Wilkins & Co. Chartered Surveyors provide the official RICS Level Two and Level Three Home surveys. We also provide a specialised snagging survey service for new build homes. More details about our snagging survey service can be found here. All our property surveys are completed by experienced RICS Chartered Surveyors.
We believe that undertaking a property survey involves more than the physical inspection and written report. Our clients receive a telephone call from the surveyor on the day of the inspection to discuss the findings. With prior arrangement, we are also happy to meet clients at the property at the end of the survey inspection to discuss the survey at the property.
Reports are completed quickly and sent to you, with a copy sent to your conveyancer. Our service does not stop there, clients are always welcome to call our team and discuss the written reports or any concerns that arise during your purchase as a result of our survey advice.
Both the RICS Level Two and Level Three surveys are prepared in easy to read formats with clear headings allowing clients to easily understand the contents.
Our survey reports also include the ‘traffic light’ rating system of each building element to allow easy identification of problem areas which will be explained in more detail in your report.
The traffic light rating system categorises differing elements in the following way:
