Home Buyers Survey in Abingdon

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to get a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a home in Abingdon and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Abingdon property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, you should you commission a RICS Level 3 Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a RICS Level 2 Survey however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Abingdon property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a Abingdon property and the estate agent has stated that it has been built with York stone. Which matters should we consider, and what does the survey cover?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to properties in Abingdon, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used in the construction of doors and windows. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls, with a brick or rubble wall beneath. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage. If you are planning to renovate, consider that stone matching services are available, which may be necessary for listed buildings. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. H Tuckwell & Sons Ltd, Thrupp Lane, Radley, Abingdon, Oxfordshire, OX14 3NG, quarrying Sand & Gravel, for details. Call 01235 521251 for more information.

Gas flame

Does the RICS chartered surveyor give details on the state of repair of the gas mains supply?

The qualified surveyor will visually check any easily accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as the condition of the meter where relevant, in addition to gas affiliated fixtures such as associated asbestos. If there are any gas fittings they won't actually be taken off. Anything related to gas should be handled with care as it is potentially fatal, should there be any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.
