A RICS Level 3, Full Building Survey is a thorough inspection of the property.
We fully inspect all parts of the property and report on the condition of the components, remaining life, material uses and suitability. Where defects are identified we will advise of the cause, and best course of remedial action.
This building survey is suitable for both leasehold and freehold houses and flats.
If you are buying a leasehold property, we advise you on whether you may be liable to contribute towards the costs of repair of common parts and provide you with the estimated cost of repairs over the next 10 years with our FBS +.
