Level 1 Surveys

What is a Level 1 Survey?

A Level 1 report focuses purely on the condition of the property by rating the different parts of the building and flagging up any areas that need attention. It is a matter-of-fact assessment of the condition and does not provide any advice.

This report format is recommended when buying conventional houses or bungalows constructed from common building materials, and which appear to be in reasonable condition.

What does a Level 1 Survey Cover?

• a physical inspection of the property
• a description of each part or element so that it can be identified
• a clear and concise assessment of each part or element
• a description of the condition of the part or element
• helps you gain an objective view of the condition of the property

Client feedback from BCR clients:

Just coming back to you on this excellent survey. I have forwarded to my solicitor who is similarly impressed, and stated `”your surveyor has done a good bit of my job for me!”… …and thanks once again for an excellent report – really put my mind at ease, and you’re right – it does provide a road map on how to look after the property that will be relevant for a good few years.’

‘Just wanted to follow up to say thank you again!  Having read through the report in more detail (more than once :)) this weekend it is very clear and incredibly thorough; as well as highlighting the issues you’ve taught us both a lot about the proper care of a home!’

We’ve been through the report thoroughly this week and don’t think we have any questions as you have explained everything so well!’ 

‘I just wanted to thank you for all your help and advice… all the photos in the report were very helpful.’
