About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Alperton

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey for a home in Alperton and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a RICS Level 3 Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Alperton property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to make any major works on the property, you should you carry out a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Alperton property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Surveyor take into account on a roughcast rendered (stucco) regency home in Alperton that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually a type of render. Normally it is layered over brick hardens to form an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. It is highly attractive and is common on some Victorian and Regency houses. it can be problematic and Alperton RICS Level 2 Surveys can report issues for example, when movement of the wall results in cracks.

Another example of problems associated with stucco could result from the heavy loads such as cracking under supports carrying concrete roof tiles that have absorbed water. Re-covering problems with stucco may be difficult and costly as skilled tradesmen are becoming rarer.

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Alperton properties at risk, and does a house surveyor investigate flooding damage?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty, and owning a property in Alperton in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. It is strongly recommended that precautions are taken, before water damage ruins both the walls and floors, and contents.

Flood water can enter a property through several routes, including badly fitted air bricks. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the property or on adjacent sites. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the vendor or agent, but this information may not be accurate.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it to consider gutters? Can damaged gutters decrease our property's value?

As a frequent surveyor of houses in the area, I find it strange that the effect which damp weather has on houses in Alperton is usually overlooked. If you have investigated the house in warm weather, problems are unlikely to be visible.

Whether buying in Alperton or elsewhere, difficult drainage does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to repair, if identified early.However, the damage caused, where disregarded, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.
