Home Buyers Survey in Alvechurch

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I choose a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Alvechurch and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a RICS Level 3 Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Alvechurch property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you choose a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is not as cheap as a RICS Level 2 Survey but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Alvechurch property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor examine on a spar dash rendered (stucco) regency home in Alvechurch that I wish to buy.

Stucco is in fact a kind of smooth render. Usually it is applied to brick to form a smooth and attractive finish. It is highly attractive and is was often applied to Victorian properties. Stucco is often prone to defect and Alvechurch Home Buyers Suveys frequently reveal defects such as when movement of the underlying wall results in cracks that allow for water penetration. Other potential problems may result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads above such as cracking under supports carrying concrete roof tiles that have absorbed water. Re-applying Stucco problems may be costly as renderers are becoming harder to find.

RICS Level 3 Survey on houses

What are the benefits to go for the full structural survey rather than a RICS Level 2 Survey?

Full Structural Surveys are no longer offered and the new type of survey which is given the name RICS Level 3 Survey, is now offered by surveyors. It is the most appropriate choice if buying an unconventional house e.g. a neglected house. The report details comprehensive and often serious insight concerning the property's construction and uses on top of any important technical details, following a thorough inspection of any accessible parts of the house.

Other external areas of the property

In a Alvechurch RICS Level 2 Survey what impact can a Condition rating 3 have on 'E9 - Other' ?

The part of the RICS Level 2 Survey mentions other aspects which do not fit into the other categories. Your surveyor can provide more details if required. Rot and insect damage to a porch or conservatory's structure is an example of this.

Severe defects impacting the Alvechurch house are indicated with a 'red' condition rating of 3. They can include defects which compromise the structural integrity of a Alvechurch residence. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific Alvechurch house being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. The RICS Level 2 Survey has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular Alvechurch house, omitting sections as necessary.
