About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Aldeburgh

RICS Level 2 Survey

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

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a RICS Level 3 Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Aldeburgh property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to carry out any major works, RICS advise you go for a RICS Level 3 Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will give a thorough analysis of the Aldeburgh property's general condition in addition to advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Aldeburgh home buyers survey look for water damage?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: The Times), and home purchasers and owners are understandably concerned. It is strongly recommended that prevention methods are considered, before flooding begins. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, outline a strategy for flood-related upkeep.Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. The chartered surveyor will usually recommend that the home purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the period property we are meaning to move into it looked like there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox - will a surveyor report on any faults with the electrics?

When performing a Home Buyers Survey in Aldeburgh a RICS surveyor should usually mention the electrics if it is obvious that they are in an unsafe state of repair.

This should include a visual view of exposed sections of the wiring or fusebox on top of areas e.g. verifying any outside installations such as out houses with a power supply or any water features. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician should form part of the RICS Level 2 Survey in Aldeburgh. Examining the documentation from the most recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician should usually form part of the survey.

House Prices

I am planning to purchase a property in IP15. The asking price is £489, 452. What things does a Aldeburgh chartered surveyor consider when carrying out a RICS valuation ?

There is a vast array of things which could have a bearing on the price of property from state of repair of the property to the quality of the bathroom and fittings. It is useful to benchmark prices the prices of house registered at the Land Registry for similar properties.

The average house price recorded in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £475, 652, which is £13, 800 less than £489, 452 - the amount you buying for. The average factoring in houses and flats was £471, 146. 4, The Fairway, Aldeburgh, Suffolk Coastal, Suffolk, IP15 5LE a detached home sold for £315, 000 .

The best way to get an impartial home valuation is to get a RICS Level 2 Survey which includes a professional valuation as standard. Your local surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme.

A professional qualified surveyor will go to the house as well as allowing for the multiple area issues that can affect house prices.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be vermin at the house we're buying, but we are not certain - Will the RICS Level 3 Survey investigate this?

Properties are generally free of vermin, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. Remedies to a serious infestation can include destruction of tainted materials. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Can a Aldeburgh House Survey consider this?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding, with subsidence being a common example. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content, such as separation of the skirting board from the floor. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Aldeburgh, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the home. 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.
