Which survey should I choose?

What can we help with?

What type of survey do I need for a listed building?

For period properties, homes located in Conservation Areas and listed buildings, we recommend the RICS Building Survey (Level 3). It is the only survey that will go into the necessary detail needed to cover the unique features and requirements of a historic character home.

Can I use the survey results to renegotiate the asking price?

A property survey will tell you about urgent remedial works that need doing, and may also provide cost estimates. Many buyers use this information to negotiate some money off the purchase price to cover the cost of any urgent repairs.

What is the difference between a HomeBuyer Survey (Level 2) and a Building Survey (Level 3)?

A HomeBuyer Report (Level 2) is a mid-range survey that produces an overview of the building’s condition, while a Building Survey (Level 3) is an in-depth investigation that covers all major defects. The latter is the best choice for older buildings, larger buildings, or properties with historical alterations.

Which is the right survey for my property purchase?

With such a lot of choice, it can be difficult to know which is the best survey for your property. This is where Cosey Homes can add value. We can talk you through the pros and cons of each survey type, outlining the options available and guide you towards making the best decision for your purchase.

What is meant by ‘gazumping’?

In England and Wales, a property transaction only becomes legally binding at exchange of contracts. Gazumping is an unfortunate, though perfectly legal, situation whereby the seller accepts a higher offer, pushing you out of the transaction, before contracts are exchanged.

How do I get my survey report?

Once our surveyor has finished compiling your survey report and it has been checked for quality control, we will send out your copy by email as a PDF document. If an additional hard copy is required, this can be arranged for an extra fee.
