Home Buyers Survey in Abridge

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we have a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey for a home in Abridge and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a RICS Level 3 Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Abridge property is a flat, or is an older 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 any major works, RICS advise you go for a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Abridge property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

External walls

For the Abridge RICS Level 2 Survey what does 'E4 - Main walls' refer to?

Foundations and possible defects within the walls will not be investigated. The damp proof course is also covered under Section E4. Decaying masonry on veneer walls is an example of a Section E defect.

RICS created the RICS Level 2 Survey to give house purchasers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for house purchasers deciding whether or not to purchase a residence. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of to what extent each defect requires attention.

Conservation area

Will there be any factors we would be advised to be aware of if planning to buy an extended house in Abridge in conservation area ?

There are many thousands official conservation areas throughout the country, responsibility for which lies with local councils. Surveyors in Abridge must possess relevant knowledge of local considerations and the relation may have with the property. Property values tends to be inflated owing to them being preserved. However a large number are falling into a state e.g. unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Surveyors are trained to tell you if the property is or might be is so classified and Section I of your RICS Level 2 Survey will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are raised by the conveyancing solicitor. Unauthorised developments to the property may also be noted but these are really more a investigated by the solicitor.

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about if buying a property near to a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste e.g. inert waste disposal. Of course nobody wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Concerns might include heavy metals .

RICS Level 2 Survey in Abridge will flag up any structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your lawyer will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database as well as Epping Forest Local Authority and advise you .
