Level 1 Survey

Carried out by a qualified RICS Surveyor, a Condition Report describes the condition of a property, identifies any risks and potential legal issues and highlights any urgent defects. It is most suitable for new-build and conventional homes in good condition; no advice or valuation is provided in this survey.

Home Buyers Survey

This is a residential Survey that is suitable for conventional properties in reasonable condition. This will help you find out if there are any structural problems, such as subsidence or damp, as well as any other unwelcome hidden issues inside and outside. The report doesn’t look beyond the floorboards or behind the walls.

Level 3 Survey

This Survey provides the same level of in-depth inspection as a level 2 survey but uses a simple a clear presentation style and a 1, 2, 3 rating system to ensure that you can easily identify the most serious issues. This is mainly aimed at larger or older properties, or if you’re planning major works.

A detailed report produced by a RICS Surveyor provides you with an in-depth analysis of the property’s condition highlighting a range of issues which includes advice on defects, repairs and maintenance options. Included with the RICS Building Survey are advice sheets on how to deal with some of the more common problems that have been found at the property.

Thermographic Surveys

We provide a nationwide service for thermographic surveys. Using thermal imaging equipment, we can test materials and parts of a property in order to identify issues such as leakage paths within building fabrications, thermal bridging and poor insulation. The information generated from this survey helps you understand the thermal performance of your property, therefore enabling retrofit projects and recommended energy efficient measures to be put into place.

A Thermographic survey is highly effective and involves no form of intrusive inspection. It is currently the only non-destructive survey available to gather these kinds of detailed results.

Air Pressure Testing

Our qualified air tester will use an industrial sized fan to either pressurise or depressurise the air within property to gain a result of the air permeability. The higher the permeability the more air leakages within the property. It is required that the property is empty during the test in order to gain the most accurate results.

Air can escape through cracks, holes or gaps within a building’s fabrications, those of which are not always easy to identify visually. Air pressure tests can be used to identify these gaps and calculate how airtight a property is along with the leakage rate. Air leakages within a property can lead to the increase of energy bills due to higher fuel consumption, higher carbon emissions and cold droughts leading to discomfort for occupant. Having an airtight property can help to reduce these issues as well as making the property more environmentally friendly and energy efficient.

It has been a requirement since 2006, that all new developments are to have an air test carried out before the occupant moves in, to meet the Building Regulations Standards. It is also recommended that higher risk retrofit projects are to undertake an air pressure test.
