Which Survey?

contact our team

Box Residential provide 2 types of report

A Valuation, as would be provided for a mortgage is not a structural inspection and would only be required to establish the market value of a property.

We offer 2 types of ‘survey’ which can be undertaken to provide a detailed picture of any potential structural defects such as damp, woodworm, structural movement, roof problems and any other issues which might be of concern to a purchaser.

In this instance Box Residential can offer either a Level 2 Home Survey or a Level 3 Building Survey. Please refer to the information below to help you decide which survey is best suited to your needs. Then click the ‘find out more’ button to contact us for further details.’



Houses, chalets, maisonettes, flats, bungalows of traditional construction in an apparent reasonable state of repair; typically built after 1900

Type and Style

A shorter standard format of report designed as an accessible and easy to understand report format.   Each element of the structure is summarised with a condition rating. The rating is flagged as a ‘traffic light’ – red, orange or green to give a visual and numeric guide as to the condition of each part of the property.


Report considers significant and/or urgent defects which allows the client to consider if the purchase should proceed.
