Which survey for a listed property?

Question

We are looking to buy a grade 2 listed property built in 1840. What type of survey would you recommend?

Answer

As this is a Grade II listed building then the survey type for this kind of property is a Level 3 Building Survey report, the RICS Homebuyer Level 2 report being more suited for non-listed buildings.  This is, at least in part, due to the fact that a listed building has potentially higher repair/maintenance costs and that having such a designation can also severely restrict works that a buyer may wish to undertake.

Paul's service has been great. Since he offered the cheapest quote, I double-checked the price with him after clarifying that it was a period property with some complex features. He replied promptly and professionally, reassuring me that he could examine the issues specified, within the original quote.
