Survey Report Examples
We deliver a Level 3 structural survey of the property and as part of this we visually inspect the structural integrity of the building, roof, floors, roof space (if there is an accessible hatch) and walls. We will look at the condition of the property including decorations, floor coverings, moisture testing and the externals of the property. When we have identified any defects, we provide an estimate of what tradesmen could charge for any repair works.
We use a traffic light system to show the condition of each element.
Condition 1 No repair is currently needed. The elements listed here must be maintained in the normal way.
Condition 2 These elements have defects that need repairing or replacing, but are not considered to be either serious or urgent. These elements must also be maintained in the normal way.
Condition 3 These elements have defects that are serious and/or need to be repaired, replaced, or investigated urgently. Failure to do so could risk serious safety issues or severe long-term damage to your property.
