Home Buyers Survey in Rolleston On Dove

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey for a house in Rolleston On Dove and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a RICS Level 3 Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Rolleston On Dove property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, you should you book a RICS Level 3 Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a RICS Level 2 Survey however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Rolleston On Dove property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any factors we would need to look out for when intending to buy an extended house in Rolleston On Dove near a conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are 9, 300 of conservation areas throughout the country that are designated and monitored by the local authority.

A RICS Level 3 Surveyors are required by RICS to possess local knowledge of relevant local area issues and the connection may have with the property and its value. House prices tends to be higher as a result of conservation areas being preserved. However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in poor condition e.g. the excessive amount of traffic management signs

RICS surveyors will report if the planned purchase is or might be within a conservation area and Section I of your Rolleston On Dove RICS Level 2 Survey will suggest additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted during the conveyancing process. Unapproved extensions to the property should be noted but these are really more a concern for your lawyer.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Does a Property Survey discuss soil composition the report?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects. Specific issues include considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Rolleston On Dove home's foundations, forcing them inward.

Taking precautions, such as keeping standing water on the property in check, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Gas flame

Does a RICS surveyor look at the state of repair of the gas supply?

A surveyor will locate and visually survey the easily accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as gas heaters at the property, in addition to gas associated appliances or installations, for instance balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. A Rolleston On Dove qualified RICS surveyor won't remove any gas fittings and won't do any tests on the system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially unsafe and if there are any worries about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a maisonette in Rolleston On Dove, does the home buyers survey investigate indications of water damage?

The lives of many owners in Rolleston On Dove and across the UK have been disrupted by flood damage, and home buyers and owners are understandably concerned. A flood danger alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency.
