RICS Home Survey Level 2

A Level 2 Homebuyers Report provides valuable insight on properties of standard construction and in seemingly good condition. During the assessment, our team will take a non-intrusive visual inspection at accessible vantage points to gather necessary information – without trespassing onto others’ private property. We also aim to gain further knowledge about the property by having discussions with its existing owners whenever possible. At completion, an informative report is provided that outlines any visible defects we detect as well as advice on how best to proceed. To ensure your property investment is in the best shape possible, we offer comprehensive evaluations that may require further information from your legal adviser. That way, you can have confidence while making a decision and be sure of gaining maximum value when purchasing!

RICS Home Survey Level 3

A Level 3 Building Survey can provide invaluable insight into the current state and future maintenance of a property, allowing potential homeowners to make educated decisions prior to purchase. This survey will cover any existing or likely-to-develop defects along with an assessment of their cause, suitable repairs and implications should those be neglected. The results are presented in a comprehensive report complete with photographs for further reference during ownership if needed.

With a Level 3 Building Survey, customers are provided with the most comprehensive evaluation of their potential property. This includes an optional cost estimate offering guidance on necessary repairs or renovations; however it is important to note that construction costs in today’s market can be highly unpredictable and so this type of estimated pricing should not be considered definitive.

Using drones for our surveys

Richmond Futures are licensed drone surveyors. Where it’s a appropriate, we have the skills and equipment to utilise drone footage. Drones allow us to inspect higher up areas of your property where we can check the condition of your roof, gutters, chimneys and windows.

Why we use drones for our surveys?

The greatest advantage of using drone footage, is the cost effectiveness. To survey high places, typically you would need to hire scaffolding and deal with the organisation & logistics that comes with it. 
Drones allow us to view out of reach areas quickly and effectively without interupting you, your neighbours or the local council.
This is an another element that makes our building surveys unique and more thorough than our competitors

Brett was absolutely brilliant and would highly recommend
Gary Duffy
Brett was totally across all aspects of the survey we needed for purchasing our new home. He advise what level of survey we needed and engaged with the agent and seller directly. He then talked us through his findings immediately after the inspection which was incredibly helpful. And his report was suitably comprehensive.

We appointed Brett Ray of Richmond Futures in end May to do a Level 2 Survey for a house we intend to purchase. Our experience with Brett have been a very pleasant one. Throughout the process, from quotation enquiry to receiving the report, Brett's response have been fast and proactive. He conducted the survey a few days after the appointment and issued the report in two or three day's time, and in such good detail that we as buyers would want to know about the property with a level 2 survey. In our case, he even drew to our attention a potential on-street parking issue which we were not sure if other level 2 report would normally cover. His report is user-friendly, supported with a good number of site photos to illustrate his observations and recommendations. After issuing the report he offered to do a zoom meeting to go through the main points with us and answer our queries directly, which we found it a very good way to wrap up the whole process. One last point to mention is that while Brett does not do property valuation himself he has been very helpful to have introduced several professional valuation surveyors to us to meet our needs.

Excellent service, we were restricted on time and Westville managed to get our survey booked in and completed in a few days. A comprehensive report, with pictures, which was followed up with a phone call to talk through any concerns we had, explaining all the details and allowing us to understand the impact of the results and what remedial work was required. They were always on hand to answer any questions and communication was 5*. I can highly recommend this company and will definitely be using them in the future.
