Which survey for a listed property?

Before you buy questions and answers
We are looking to buy a grade 2 listed property built in 1840. What type of survey would you recommend?
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.
We've already helped over 2,705,846 movers
As a first time buyer and completely new to the home buying process, it was really easy to get a selection of Chartered Surveyors and make my selection
