Level 3 Building Surveys in Surrey

Reducing Your Financial Liability in Property Transactions

The Level 3 Building Survey offers everything the Home Buyer Survey provides. It is thus an extension of this report, going into greater detail to assess homes that are non-traditionally built or in poorer condition. It gives investors peace of mind when purchasing a property that is significantly altered or pre-dates 1900.

Experienced Surrey Surveyor

Strategic Property Advice

Simon Burrage, with a Masters in Builders Surveying and ten years of experience as a surveyor in Surrey, should be your first choice for Level 3 reports. 

Unlike standard survey formats, a Level 3 Building Survey is often tailored to suit the client’s and property’s specific needs and requirements. Our surveyors can focus on particular areas of concern or interest identified by the client by delivering a personalised assessment that meets their needs.

What Level 3 Surveys Are For

Protecting Your Bottom Line

Our Level 3 surveys are particularly beneficial for older, more complex properties or those that have been significantly altered, refurbished or extended in the past. You’ll have complete peace of mind with a comprehensive understanding of your building’s status and guidance for informed decision-making.

A Level 3 building survey gives a comprehensive property assessment with clear and concise information about how to remedy defects we find. Our friendly service extends beyond the initial inspection and report, as we are always willing to provide follow-up advice over the phone or by email.

  • Purchasing an Older Property: When considering a purchase of an older property or one listed or has historical significance, a Level 3 Building Survey will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of its condition. This type of report is important to highlight any hidden issues or structural concerns that require thorough investigation. 
  • Purchasing Property in Poor Condition: Residences in poor condition, for example, have been neglected or require a significant renovation. 
  • Renovating or Extending Property: If you plan to renovate or extend a property, a Level 3 Building Survey will identify any structural issues or constraints that might obstruct or affect your plans. As it provides detailed information concerning the property’s structure and condition, it will help you make informed purchasing decisions regarding the feasibility and scope of the renovation project.
  • If You Have Concerns About Structural Integrity: If there are signs of subsidence, cracking or dampness, a Level 3 Building Survey can provide a thorough assessment. In this report, the surveyor will evaluate the property’s structure and identify any risks that affect its stability. 

Our Level 3 surveys offer more detail than our level 2 surveys. During a Level 3 survey we address:

  • Major and minor defects
  • Dampness tests
  • Structural modifications
  • Unauthorized renovations
  • Hazardous materials
  • Subsidence
  • Roof and masonry damage
  • Timber deterioration
  • Nearby large trees
  • Existing insulation and damp proofing

What’s Included?

Minimizing Risk, Maximizing Returns

  1. Comprehensive inspection with a qualified surveyor who will conduct a thorough inspection inside and outside, visually examining all accessible areas, including the structure, walls, floors, windows, doors, plumbing, heating and electrical systems. We utilise drone technology to inspect hard-to-see areas of the roof, box gutters, chimney and flashing.
  2. Surveyors will conduct a detailed analysis to identify any signs of defects, deterioration or damage using special equipment and techniques to assess the structural integrity that might not be immediately apparent to the human eye. The surveyor will look for potential problems like structural issues, dampness, subsidence, rot, infestations or other areas that could affect the property’s value, safety or habitability. 
  3. Further recommendations and advice are based on any findings using an easy-to-understand traffic light system that outlines any guidance on necessary repairs, maintenance tasks or any further specialised investigations. We can also advise on areas where the property’s condition can be improved or where you can enhance its performance. 
  4. Documentation and reports that detail all findings, including photos, diagrams and descriptions of defects alongside recommendations for actions.

Would highly recommend using Westville Associates. Appointed Brett to act for us in regards to some party wall matters. We found him to be polite and professional with a wealth of knowledge in this field. Great communication throughout the process. Great service from start to finish.

I was recommended to use Westville Associates through a colleague to carry out a survey of a house we were looking to purchase. I couldn’t have been happier with the whole process. From start to finish, Simon was professional, punctual, through and gave good advice with issues that arose from the survey. I have and will continue to recommend Westville Associates to anyone wishing to carry out any surveys.

Simon carried out a full building survey for us on a property in Oxted. We found him to be prompt, professional, very knowledgeable, a great service all round. We would have no hesitation in recommending him and using him again.

We used Wesville Associates for a full Building Survey for our property in Claygate after a recommendation from a friend. Simon was very personable, knowledgable and professional, and was able to work around our tight timeframe. We felt in good hands from the start!
“Westville Associates undertook a homebuyers report for us prior to the purchase of our flat in Wandsworth. The service from start to finish was exemplary. Simon booked us in, undertook the inspection and presented the report to us all within 7 working days which was appreciated as time was against us somewhat. The after sales care was also great as we had several questions about the property that were dealt with over the phone. Friendly, professional and prompt service. Would definitely recommend. Rob.”

I have worked in Surbiton and the surrounding areas as an agent for over 10 years and could not recommend Simon highly enough. He has a wealth of knowledge and goes above and beyond to ensure his clients fully understand the fantastic reports he creates, unlike many other surveyors who just send a confusing report without further explanation of key points. I am so pleased Simon has set up his solo venture - Westville Associates and will be recommending him to all of my clients.
