RICS Level 2 & Level Home Survey - FAQs

The RICS Home Survey – Level 3 is a comprehensive property inspection service provided by a qualified surveyor. It includes a thorough examination of the property and a detailed report aimed at helping you make informed decisions regarding property purchase, repairs, maintenance, or upgrades.

The Level 3 service covers a detailed inspection of the property, providing professional advice on its condition, potential defects, and estimated costs for repairs or necessary work. It aims to assist in making reasoned decisions about property transactions.

The surveyor inspects both the interior and exterior of the main building and permanent outbuildings, recording construction details and visible defects. The inspection includes a desktop study, oral inquiries, and the use of equipment such as damp meters and binoculars.

Services within the property are visually inspected, but specialist tests for electrical, gas, or other energy sources are not conducted. The survey does not assess the efficiency or safety of these services, plumbing, heating, drainage installations, or the internal condition of chimneys, boilers, or flues.

The surveyor inspects boundary walls, fences, and permanent outbuildings, walking around the grounds and neighboring public property where accessible. Leisure facilities, such as swimming pools, are treated as permanent outbuildings and inspected, but specific details on these are not reported.

The surveyor makes inquiries about contamination or environmental dangers and recommends further investigation if needed. The report assumes no harmful materials unless identified during inspection, in which case the surveyor reports and seeks further instructions.

The surveyor provides condition ratings (R, 3, 2, 1, NI) for main building elements. These ratings indicate the severity of defects and urgency for repairs. The report highlights areas not inspected and advises on further investigations if necessary.

The surveyor does not prepare the EPC but may review and state the energy efficiency rating if available. The report provides additional commentary on energy-related matters and advises on recommended energy improvements.

The surveyor does not act as a legal adviser but may identify issues for legal advisers in the report. If potential legal concerns arise during the inspection, they are mentioned for further investigation by legal professionals.

The Level 3 service is provided by an AssocRICS, MRICS, or FRICS member. Before the inspection, you should communicate any concerns, and terms of payment are agreed upon in writing. The surveyor's liability is limited to the client, and a complaints handling procedure is in place.

The Level 2 (survey only) service includes a physical inspection of the property and a report to help you make informed decisions on property purchase, considering necessary repairs and further advice before committing.
