Home Buyers Survey in Billesdon

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we get a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Billesdon and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Billesdon property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you carry out a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is not as cheap as a RICS Level 2 Survey however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Billesdon property's general condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .
