RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to opt for a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a property in Penzance and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Penzance property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should choose the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

This survey is less cheap however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Penzance property's condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Which Penzance Surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding a retaining wall)

A RICS Level 2 Survey on a Penzance building will include a valuation and a Reinstatement Cost as standard. When calculating the market value your independent surveyor will use in depth understanding of the Penzance market as well as other factors about the property for instance: style of architecture The surveyor will also consider style of architecture and use key assumptions such as no damaging building techniques have been employed.
