Trusted by thousands of delighted customers

“We opted for a full blown building survey. The surveyor was fantastic - thorough, approachable and detailed in every aspect. Further to this, he made himself available to me to answer questions and pass on his invaluable advice. Swift, responsive and available to me at all times. I could not rate this team better.”- Jason Dias-Patel

Why RICS Level 3?

The most detailed inspection from an experienced surveyor. The Level 3 Report is ideally for properties in poor condition, of an unusual design, substantially altered or extended, or for larger, older or non-traditional types of construction.
