Home Buyers Survey in Aldridge

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we get a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Aldridge and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Aldridge property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to carry out major works, you should you choose a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Aldridge property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Aldridge. Is there any brick advice we should be aware of??

Brick-walled property in Aldridge can be affected by a number of issues, from efflorescence to cracks. For instance, extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork and should be taken very seriously. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Mackay S of 107 Wadham Gdns, Greenford, UB6 0BS on 07765 257613.

Brick-constructed property may be found throughout England and Wales, leading to a good selection of methods and styles. E.g. English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks.

Damage resulting from flooding

We believe this property is located near a stream. Is there a major flood risk? Would our house surveyor check for water damage?

The lives of many residents in Aldridge and across the UK have been disrupted by flood damage, and home purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. A flood risk alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a residential property, such as via poorly installed doors.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. the use of lime-based plaster on walls. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

Do all Aldridge surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as reconstructing permanent outbuildings)

A RICS Level 2 Survey on a Aldridge property will contain an impartial valuation and will also include a reinstatement cost estimate. To be able to determine an accurate estimate of the value of the building your surveyor will use experience of property in Aldridge and other things relating to the property for instance: accommodation Surveyors also examine construction type and will draw upon key assumptions, for example no damaging building techniques have been used.

A RICS Level 3 Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local area conjectures, for example problematic roads and access, are made as well as any significant local environmental issues like pig farms, also being considered.
