RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I choose a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a house in Claydon and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a RICS Level 3 Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Claydon property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, you should you go for a RICS Level 3 Survey instead. This survey is less cheap but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Claydon property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .
