Why you need this

Making the transition from providing Level 1 or 2 Surveys to Level 3 can be daunting. Level 3 is the highest level of non-invasive survey most residential surveyors offer and they require a good level of technical knowledge. Many surveyors gain this technical knowledge and experience over time to then apply it to a building, but what is often lost is a thorough grasp of how to take what they have learnt and produce a report that is truly useful to a client.

If you are looking to take the first step towards producing Level 3 Surveys or if you already offer them but want to make sure you are producing the best reports you can, then this session is for you.
