WHAT IS THE RICS LEVEL 2 HOME SURVEY?

The Level 2 Survey, previously known as a Homebuyer Survey or Homebuyer Report, is an intermediate and non-invasive visual inspection that focuses on assessing the condition of the main elements of a property, including the roof and heating system. During the survey, the AMS Surveys team will pay close attention to the tell-tale signs of issues such as damp or subsidence, and a report with a ‘condition rating’ will be generated following completion to help you with negotiations.

Although the checks are less comprehensive than those involved in a Level 3 Survey, and they do not see our teams go beyond any elements that are not visible, the Level 2 Survey is ideal for individuals who are seeking a professional opinion at an economical price. Additionally, you can add an independent valuation to the survey that will take into account our findings to ensure you are buying the property at the right price.

WHAT’S INCLUDED?

  • Roof inspection - paying particular attention to any potential damage or decay from ground level, with binoculars/digital camera

  • Exposed surfaces and floors - unfixed hatches/panels or floorboards

  • Concealed chamber areas normally opened or used by the occupiers, if safe to do so - typical examples include roof spaces, basements, and cellars

  • Windows - one per elevation and one of each different type

A Level 2 report does NOT include an EPC certificate however, a review of the existing certificate will be conducted, and major differences highlighted. Where our surveyor is unable to reach a conclusion with reasonable confidence, we will recommend that further investigations should be made.

THE LEVEL 2 SURVEY IS SUITABLE FOR:
  • Any building in a suitable condition

  • All conventional houses, flats and bungalows

  • Properties built with common building materials

  • Individuals looking for information on the general condition of the property and any required repairs

The Level 2 report is unlikely to be suitable for complex, neglected and older or historic properties where a more in-depth report will be required.
