About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Stocksbridge

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we choose a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey for a property in Stocksbridge and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a RICS Level 3 Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Stocksbridge property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to make substantial modifications on the Stocksbridge property, you should you carry out a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is not as cheap but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Stocksbridge property's state of repair along with advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed a property we are meaning to lease it looked like there was no RCD on the fuse board - will the surveyor advise the wiring and electrical system?

When preparing a Home Buyers Survey in Stocksbridge the surveyor will add detail on the overall electrical system if it is suspected that the electrics are in a hazardous condition.

This should include a non invasive look-over of the accessible areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as other things, for example reporting on the state of repair of any fixed electrical appliances e.g. heaters or verifying the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documents from any recent PIR handled by an electrician should usually form part of the survey in Stocksbridge.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) suggest that a Periodic Inspection be completed at least every 10 years (5 if renting out).

Stone block wall damage

Can Forest of Dean stone-built property be difficult to repair. What problems should we be aware of, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Ranging from Ham Hill Middle Bed Limestone to Rockingstone Sandstone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include erosion. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Stocksbridge should be able to supply local stone.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Hepworth Building Products Ltd, Hazelhead, Crow Edge, Sheffield, S36 4HG for details. Call 01226 763561 for more information.

For more details, get in touch with a local firm, including Cunningham Ken of Smithy Fold Farm, Wortley, Sheffield, S35 7DA.
