What is a Level 2 Home Survey?

The Level 2 Home Survey, formerly known as the Homebuyer Survey or Homebuyer Report, offers an in-depth analysis of a property’s condition, aimed at assisting prospective buyers in their purchasing decisions. This survey is particularly apt for standard properties that are in a generally sound state. It highlights major faults and provides a set of recommendations for any necessary remedial work. Having a Level 2 Home Survey empowers buyers with valuable insights into the property, allowing them to make well-informed choices, whether that’s going ahead with the acquisition or renegotiating the price.

Conducted by a qualified and seasoned surveyor, the Level 2 Home Survey involves a meticulous visual inspection of key aspects of the property. This encompasses the roof, walls, floors, and ceilings, along with a cursory review of the plumbing, electrical, and heating systems. The surveyor scrutinises both the exterior and interior, identifying any indicators of damage or deterioration.

The resulting Level 2 Home Survey report furnishes a comprehensive assessment of the property’s overall condition. It outlines any notable defects or issues that might impact the property’s market value. It also suggests the requisite repairs or maintenance activities. Legal considerations, such as planning permissions or building regulations, may also be addressed in the report. All in all, the Level 2 Home Survey is an indispensable resource for anyone contemplating a property purchase, arming them with a detailed awareness of the property’s current state and enabling more informed decision-making.

Who carries out a Level 2 Home Survey

A Level 2 Home Survey, in line with RICS standards, is always carried out by a qualified and experienced chartered surveyor. This survey encompasses a thorough evaluation of a property’s condition and potential issues, involving an in-depth examination of both the interior and exterior of the property. Subsequently, a comprehensive report is generated, highlighting any areas of concern or potential problems.

When selecting a surveyor to conduct a Level 2 Home Survey, it is crucial to opt for an individual who is a member of a reputable professional organization, such as the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). These organizations impose stringent standards and ethical codes on their members, guaranteeing an unbiased and accurate assessment of the property.

Moreover, it is advisable to choose a surveyor with expertise in conducting Level 2 Home Surveys for the specific type of property you intend to purchase. For instance, if you are acquiring an older or listed building, a surveyor with knowledge of historic properties is essential. Ultimately, the chosen surveyor should be capable of providing you with the necessary information and guidance to make an informed decision about your property investment.

At CJ Bloor Property Consultants, we take immense pride in the exceptional quality of our surveyors. All our professionals are RICS Accredited, and our team undergoes a rigorous selection process to meet our stringent recruitment criteria. This ensures the highest standards of excellence in all our services. As fully regulated RICS members, we undergo regular audits to ensure that our practices consistently adhere to the most rigorous Quality Assurance standards.

Using a Level 2 Home Survey to re-negotiate the sale price

If any defects come to light during the “subject to contract” phase of the sale, as identified by the accredited surveyor in their Level 2 Home Survey report, they can be employed as leverage in negotiations for a lower final purchase price. Such a report from a certified surveyor serves as a valuable document to bolster your case in this regard.

Nonetheless, it is important to note that the prevailing market conditions can also exert an influence on your ability to negotiate the price. House prices are often influenced by the dynamics of supply and demand. In a robust market where there is high demand for residential properties, negotiations may prove to be more challenging. Conversely, during a declining market, negotiations may appear comparatively more straightforward.

For further insights into the art of renegotiating an offer following a Level 2 Home Survey, we recommend perusing our widely-read article on the subject. We trust you will find it to be a valuable resource in your property journey.

Why it's important to get a Level 2 Home Survey

Investing in a property is a significant financial commitment, and securing the best possible deal is essential. However, some property purchasers may consider skipping the Level 2 Home Survey to save money, which can lead to costly consequences. Skipping this survey can result in unexpected expenses and significant hassles in the future.

Without a thorough Level 2 Home Survey, buyers may unknowingly purchase a property with hidden defects that could require substantial funds for repair. These issues might include structural problems, dampness, or pest infestations, all detectable through the survey. By not obtaining a survey, property purchasers risk acquiring a property needing significant repairs or renovations, impacting their budget. To learn more about the benefits of getting a survey, please refer to our article.

Additionally, not obtaining a Level 2 Home Survey can also lead to legal issues. If a purchaser buys a property without a survey and later discovers issues that should have been detected, they may be liable for damages. This could involve costly legal expenses and compensation to the previous owner or subsequent buyers. Avoid unnecessary risks when purchasing a property by investing in a Level 2 Home Survey to make a prudent investment.

How to find a RICS Surveyor

It is crucial to locate a competent and personable surveyor who can be relied upon, given the multitude of surveyors available.

Our blog can assist in identifying the characteristics of a satisfactory home survey, but the principal aspect to consider is ensuring that the surveyor is registered with RICS.

RICS registration mandates that building surveyors evaluate a property based on impartial and controlled market criteria that are regularly scrutinized.

An alternative approach to finding a surveyor is to examine Trustpilot for feedback.
